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.

We went into the tasting room while we were waiting for the restaurant to open. I only like sparkling wines so I asked if I could get a glass. They said that they could only do a tasting that it would be cheaper to get a glass in the restaurant. I went ahead and got the tasting. They made me... More

The venue is one of the best in Temecula. The wines are excellent. The prices are great ...especially happy hour. The only problem is they are every understaffed. Our server was really sweet but very frazzled because of having too many tables. It took 35 minutes to get a glass wine and had to go through another server. If the... More

This was a Grand Central Station of a winery. It was so busy with people in so many different venues --- restaurants, hotel, tastings, private tastings, etc. In spite of that the wine was good. We liked the Viognier, Moscato, Malbec and others. We enjoyed the server and the company we met at the bar.

So as I have stated in other reviews, we are big fans of Napa Cabernet's and Zinfandel's. So Temecula is not the easiest place for us to taste and enjoy the wine. As far as wine goes, we did not find anything here that we really liked. They have some really cool merchandise, which is one of the great parts... More

Please do not miss visiting this Estate. It is not just a winery but a destination where your senses will be filled with joy. My girlfriend I decided to stop and have lunch outside on a Monday afternoon. It was a cool and quiet afternoon and the gardens were beautiful. We even saw rabbits as we waited for our food....

My daughter had her wedding & reception here. The staff was amazing. They had everything handled and guided us through the process with friendliness and professionalism. From the moment we booked the date to the last guest to leave, they were there for us. Thanks!
