Temecula Valley, CA is a one-stop destination for a fun and unique New Year’s Eve celebration, from their one-of-a-kind Grape Drop in Old Town to their Fazeli Cellars New Year’s Eve party and Wilson Creek Winery’s black-tie event, there’s plenty of ways to ring in 2023 Temecula-style.
Temecula Valley’s Grape Drop at Civic Center in Old Town has been around since 2009, as a way for the city to embrace the new year with something symbolic to Temecula Valley. With Temecula Valley being the representative of wine country for southern California, it seemed more than appropriate for a cluster of grapes to represent the ball. The current grape cluster is custom molded and was created by 60 Grit Studios, based in Temecula, which was molded by fiberglass. It is approximately 9 feet wide by 13.5 feet tall with more than 7,000 lights to light it up. Ring in the New Year twice in Temecula Valley – with the East Coast (9 pm) and West Coast (midnight) countdown.
