Cougar Winery has it all! Wonderful people who care about you, take the time to share the amazing wine here! The wine is the star - amazing Italian varietals - our fav is the Sangiovese and the full Monte - but the food is the amazing understudy! Great pizza, platters, sandwiches and more! Make it a must stop when your... More

We were very impressed with our wine tasting at Cougar Winery. Michael talked to us about the many wines produced there and spent time describing the attributes of each wine as we tasted them. We could tell he was passionate about the Cougar wine produced there and was knowledgeable about the history of the wine growing in the region. When... More

Very nice, small (small by Temecula standards) family Winery. It's 17 acres under vine and they mainly grow unique Italian varietals that only a few others in the US grow and offer. The gentleman who provided us our tasting was great! He went over each wine in great detail and that really makes a huge difference when pouring, as it's... More

The Cougar Winery is situated high on a hill overlooking the vineyards. They have wine tasting of course and a deli that serves a variety of sandwiches. There are lots of tables inside and more on the outside patio. At times they have entertainment on weekend evenings. The wines are some of the better ones available in Temecula and if... More

If you are looking for a casual lunch while driving around the Temecula Wineries this is a great place. The view is spectacular. You will feel like you are in Tuscany. We did not do any taste testing of the wines but had a very casual lunch on their outside covered patio. If you are not a wine drinker you... More

We visited here on a tour. They serve Boar's Head so it's a great place to stop and get some food in your belly as to be able to drink more wine. I was impressed with their sweet wines. The Pink Cougar donates to breast cancer. Very friendly and amazing views!

We tried 3 different wineries and everyone without excepton said that they enjoyed the wines here the best. Excellent food available on site with nice seating including large Adridrondak chairs on patio with nice view. Very relaxing environment and I had an excellent pizza.

We really enjoyed our time here with Susan as our pourer. I loved the name of the Winery which is why we went. We bought the Pink Cougar which is something I thought I never would being a Bordeaux and Big Chard drinker...but I liked it for a light Summer wine. We liked the Primitivo and bought that as well.... More

Most wineries in this region only have a tasting room. If you are lucky you can find one with a deli case with package stuff, BUT Cougar can offer you great wine for tasting or a glass of your favorite with a great lunch. The deli has good options from pizza to sandwiches or a meat and cheese platter to... More
