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.

Taking part in Diva Half Marathon series Temecula had its perks. Our group of runners (5 ladies) had the pleasure of popping into Ponte for a tasting. Greeted by gorgeous grounds, friendly staff and a fun atmosphere we were happily surprised when the tastings were 6 for $20. A variety of wines are provided on a paper and verbally by... More

My favorite winery in Temecula. They had a 50% active duty military discount for the service member plus another person. So, our party of four got half off of our tastings. The gift shop is adorable. To get the full experience, go out to the patio after the tasting. Order a bottle of your favorite with a cheese plate and... More

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.
