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!

While vacationing in the Palm Springs area, we decided to spend a day in the Temecula Valley, visiting some wineries. It is only about a 1½ hour drive from Palm Springs, crossing the San Jacinto mountains, which in itself is a beautiful drive. After visiting several wineries, we decided to have lunch at the Ponte Family Estate Winery. When we... More

Enjoyed our visit here. Split a meat and cheese board. Great selection of cheeses and cured meats with lots of side breads and dips and veggies. Good portion size, my wife and I shared it and couldn't quite finish everything. Really good viognier to wash it all down. Location, view and facility were amazing and very well maintained.

Attended a wedding dinner at the winery. The winery is beautiful, provided a sense of privacy even with several events going on in different areas of the grounds. The meal was superb with an excellent assortment of very good wines. Highly recommend for a function
