The Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival,
then known as the Rancho California Balloon and Wine Festival, was started in 1983 by Walt Darren, a commercial airline pilot and avid balloonist and by Evelyn Harker a veteran event organizer and fund raiser. The seed money was provided by Kaiser Development Company and sponsors came from the local community giving what they could with many contributions consisting of in-kind services and products.
At this time, there were only six wineries in the region.
There are over 30 wineries in the region now.
The first Balloon and Wine Festival was launched in the Spring of 1984 and was a monumental success for a town of only 9,000 residents. More than 4,000 people were in attendance that year as 35 balloons were launched from the Rancho California Plaza area off Ynez Road (now Tower Plaza).
As the Festival grew, music was added and the event was moved to the Sports Park.
In 1986 as the event continued to grow, it was moved to Cherry Avenue and the first ever poster contest was held. During 1987-1988, the Festival was moved back to the Sports Park and in 1989, it was moved to its current location at Lake Skinner. In 1988, the Festival featured live entertainment with the Coasters and Little Anthony and the Imperials. In 1991 the Beach Boys entertained.

Esteemed wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr., believes the Paso Robles area of the Central Coast shows some of the greatest potential in all of California. In fact a Paso Robles Syrah Blend wine was ranked the No#1 wine of the world in 2010 by Wine Spectator. Paso Robles, sometimes called " Napa South", is known for its favorable microclimates and limestone rich soils. This, combined with warm days and cool nights, fosters the best out of the grapes resulting in exceptional depth of flavors and a long finish to the wine. Our Four Sisters Ranch is a family affair named after our four daughters, Sacheen, Elan, Toccara, and Sierra, who each contribute uniquely to our success. As medical doctors Michael and Serena are excited about the cardiovascular health benefits of our wine.
