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.

Great wines, friendly staff, and generous pours. If we join a wine club, Ponte will be the club for us with their wonderful wines and beautiful grounds - both at winery and the adjoining hotel property.

We've been here many times, and enjoy eating lunch here. The food is interesting and usually quite delicious. The service is always excellent and I enjoy sitting outside and appreciating the weather and the vineyard view. On the downside, it was $60 for a pretty basic lunch (no appetizers, just one glass of wine between the two of us) and... More

Do all this before or after lunch. Really nice tasting bar, pretty busy even during the week, very popular. Went home with a Doopietta 2011 very tasty. They do... More

On a nice warm day having lunch outdoors is the best. Views of the vineyard and deliciously cuisine can't be beat.
