5th Birthday Celebration!

Luxury Limousine Bus for Birthday Celebration post

For out 5th birthday celebration, TBC is pleased to reveal our newest family member, Louise!


November 5th was our 5th Birthday Celebration!

November was our business’s birthday month and we just can’t believe it’s been 5 years since we rolled out our first (and then only) London Executive Sedan and did the rounds of the beautiful Temecula wineries! Well 5 years,  5th birthday celebration and five more vehicles later and our enthusiasm hasn’t waned – we still approach each trip as if it was our first.

Of course much has changed in the Valley since the first tour – the number of wineries has shot up (all the more market research to do!),  the prices have increased (and so has the traffic) but our primary goal hasn’t. We still want to provide the best tours, best value for money and the individually tailored experiences for which we have become well-known.

Our biggest asset is our team of wonderful drivers – we have been blessed with intuitive, loyal people who  always give their best. They have helped us grow, giving their time to promote our values.

In addition, our clients are the best – we have a huge return clientele and through them and their referrals our business has blossomed. We thank them all for their continued support and lovely reviews on social media;  without them we would be nowhere! We include all these brilliant people in our birthday celebration.

Our latest addition in response to customer requests is “Louise” – a beautiful Executive Limousine bus which seats up to 10 in deeply padded comfort. As many of you know, all our cars have names – Louise is named for our latest addition to the family, our lovely daughter-in-law. In a family of giants, she is a tiny powerhouse! So, fittingly, our biggest and brightest is named after her. Additionally, we found her on Louise Road in Northern California so it was just meant to be……

So Happy Birthday TBC and welcome to the family our Louises – so many reasons to celebrate!

Cheers, Cindy

Winter is here!

Mt San Jacinto from Oak Mountain Winery

December 28, 2015

As the snow on top of Mt San Jacinto reflects the setting sun, the chill in the air reminds me that winter is indeed here! It was a beautiful day yesterday, sunny and crisp, perfect for wine-tasting. Apparently many people thought the same –  the wineries were buzzing with life and seasonal cheer. The past year has been both rewarding and challenging, we have made many new friends and been visited by many old. To all we thank you for your support and wish you a very happy, healthy and peaceful New Year! Come visit!
Cheers, Cindy

September Sunset

September Sunset

September 23, 2015

Well it’s been a quiet month for me as I broke my ankle on Labor day – my driving days are done for a few weeks! Tony, Annie and Sergio have been holding the fort the last couple of weeks and doing a brilliant job. I miss my clients though!

The September heat is continuing into the Autumn, after a brief respite the last couple of days it looks like it’s going to be another weekend scorcher. What a perfect time to sit back and relax in air-conditioned luxury while we take you to the cool of the Temecula Wine Country tasting rooms! Hey, maybe I can go now that I can’t drive!!!!

Cheers, Cindy


August mist over Temecula

August morning mist over the Temecula Valley

August 11, 2015

WOW! It’s been a busy summer so far, new cars, new website and new resolutions to post news more often! Well. at least I’ll try…

Please let me know what you think and if there are any improvements I can make. I’m always open to suggestions!

Unfortunately I managed to lose a years’ worth of client photos during the changeover and am rapidly trying to recover and add them to our photo pages. If you have a photo you’d like displayed I would be VERY grateful for any donations! Just send them to cindy@temeculablackcar.com and I’ll upload them.

Cheers, Cindy
