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.

Lovely lunch venue

Great food, beautiful relaxed venue, excellent service! Ponte's restaurant never disappoints. Their wine is just ok but the restaurant is a very pleasant and top quality venue.

Ponte Winery is absolutely perfect and the staff is wonderful! We are from Chicago so this was a destination wedding for us. The property is so beautiful and very different than all of the other wineries in the area. Ponte made the entire process so easy and accommodating the only two times we were in CA and through email.

We did not taste the wines at this winery, rather we ate alfresco for lunch. We ordered a 4 cheese pizza and added proscuitto, black olives, and artichoke hearts. It took about 30 minutes for the pizza to arrive. It was delicious with a thin crust and a nice mix of cheeses. While we waited we just sipped ice water... More

We came as a large group with reservations for lunch... and no expectations. The wine tasting room was busy but well designed and a great place to wait since our patio reservation ran a little late. Once seated, the service was excellent, even for a large group. The food and the drinks were perfect for the setting. We will come... More

We visited on a Wednesday for wine tasting. Crowd was small and staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. Wines are varied and excellent. Would highly recommend a visit on non-weekends.

I went today to Temecula for wine tastings and was shocked by a couple of tasting fees--Ponte's being one of them. Ponte is 20 dollars for five or six tiny tastes of wine. Their wine was marginal at best and they were the only winery that we went to today where you could just not purchase a bottle of wine... More

Wonderful Italian varietals. The 14 Arneis and 14 Vermentino are excellent! The 12 Super Tuscan is superb. If Sandi is working in the tasting room you are in for an enjoyable tasting!!! P.S. Consider joining the club.
