My husband and I really enjoyed this little gem for their outstanding reds. The son of the winery owner was our pourer. He was very friendly and unpretentious which is exactly the vibe of this winery. No fancy tasting room here, focus is on the wine. Their tasting menu consists of 1 white and 4 reds. The winery only produces... More

We visited Palumbo two weeks ago as part of our personalized wine tour with Tom, from Wineormous. All three reds we tasted were excellent. The surprise of the day for me was also enjoying their one white wine and their dessert wine since I don't usually like either. It's never too late to learn something new, I guess. We had... More

Most wineries in the area specialize in everything. Weddings, bachelorette parties, chaos. This winery specializes in wine. The knowledgeable behind-the-bar staff also work the winery behind the scenes: picking, making, and bottling the wines. They see everything from start to finish. The quality and care taken with every step is evident in their wines. Beautiful views and a patio to... More

When visiting Temecula wine country this is our go to place. Great wine and great people. The place is never too busy and besides the excellent wine, the views are great too!

This is a no frills, no food, just wine, family run winery, nicely kept up but small . Was met by the second generation Palumbo and a staff member for the tasting. They were hard at work in the barrel room but came out to serve our tasting. It was nice to see the operation and talking with the family... More

Generally, we are not fond of Temecula wines. They are way over priced for the quality. But this one is really good and our favorite. While it is out of the way and not one of those over done and overpriced wineries, if you are after good wine and good service, go here.

For those in quest of excellent rich red wine at moderate cost near San Diego do not overlook the producers of fine wine, the small but distinctive Palumbo Winery in Temecula. You will find it difficult to reject any of the earthy red wines that you taste, from exquisite Syrahs to exotic blends reminiscent of world class super Tuscans. One... More

Great wine! Great tasting room staff! Out of the four wineries we visited, I would have to say this was my favorite. Not on the main road, but worth the "detour".

To my surprise, there are so many small wineries in this part of Southern California. Palumbo didn't disappoint at all. I ended buying some great Cabernet Franc, and although the prices of California wines is at a premium, this was simply irresistible. Only negative which doesn't pertain to this particular winery, is the fee for wine tasting, which is common... More
