A short drive from most cities in Southern California, amid the rolling hills of the Temecula Valley wine country, Ponte Winery awaits. After over 25 years of careful farming to supply other wineries throughout California, we opened our winery and restaurant in the summer of 2003. Since then, we have become the Temecula Valley benchmark for great service and the region's finest wines. Our motto is "If you like it, it's good wine"™ and we invite you to enjoy a day in the country at Ponte. We offer a personalized, one-on-one service during the week, and a lively and happening atmosphere on the weekend and we hope you will find your experience at our winery to be like no other.The Tasting Room is open 7 days a week, from 10am-5pm.Tasting includes 6 wine tastings and a Ponte wine glassMonday-Friday, $15 per personSaturdays & Sundays, $20 per personWe will be closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Please be advised that on the weekends (Saturday & Sundays) only Limos and Buses with a prior Limo Reservation will be allowed to enter the winery between 10am-12noon.

Attended a holiday party at this venue. Large drive-up round-about to drop off guests. Nicely lit walk to pavillion for party. Clean, well-kept grounds. Very nice pavillion. Spacious indoor seating, with food and bar set-up around the outside edges. Ceiling was fairly high; room had an open feeling. Attendant were friendly and helpful. Food was quite good. Checking Ponte's catering... More

The Tasting Room is HUGE and was just packed with people. They do a good job of getting the tastes to you and we enjoyed the experience in spite of the crowds. See Sandi or Fred for a better experience.

My extended family was staying at the Ponte Vineyard Inn for my mother-in-law's 90th birthday. One of the highlights of our visit was the premium wine tour and tasting. I never expected such an extensive selection of interesting wines, including some Italian wines such as a Montepulciano and Super Tuscan. Our tour guide, Yvonne, was amazing, and the assortment of...

Ryan, our wine tasting server went out of his way to tell us about the wines and the background to Ponte's winery. If one is not a connoisseur it's hard to remember all wines in a tasting flight. He was forthright, very pleasant and made the experience memorable, even adding an extra taste of something that had gone before to... More

Try the wrap or ravioli. They are both delicious. The hamburger looked pretty good, too. Outside dining so bring a jacket if it is cool.

The experience was very enjoyable. Atmosphere is relaxed, server was friendly, informative. They let us keep the glass as a souvenir. Our stay at Ponte Inn was very pleasant. Although they couldn't give us a sunny day (it rained during our visit), we still had a very memorable visit. We plan to return here for wine tasting, dinner, and overnight... More

Ponte winery is one of my favorites. It has a beautiful setting, the people are very friendly, and their wines were very suitable to my palette. If you are wine tasting in Temecula I highly recommend stopping at Ponte and if you're staying a couple nights, try their Inn next door.

I wasn't familiar with wines from the Temecula Region until stopping here. It was definitely worth the visit. I never try to tell others which wines they should choose--but I am fairly sure that whatever your palate, you will find at least one wine here worth buying. And the attached restaurant and hotel are amazing as well.
