We tried three vineyards this day, our first experience with vineyards and tastings. And this was good simply blah, nothing special not nothing new compared to our first two. Good and the views are pretty but so so nonetheless. Nothing stands out and the wine here did not meet nor exceed the other wineries. All in all, number three on... More

Loved the outdoor wine tasting (tasting room currently under renovations). This was the first winery we went to on this trip that had seating. After standing all day this was really nice. My husband and I couldn't understand why there weren't a lot of people. We were the only ones almost until the end of our tasting. The long walk... More

The grounds are fantastic, great place if you have an event especially a wedding. Perfect settings. Stopped in for a tasting. Taylor was nice explained the wines. Got a great deal 6 bottles for 60 bucks. They are average wines, but that was a bang for the bucks. Fee for tasting. The construction going on is for the restaurant that... More

Mount Palomar Winery is a beautiful location. Large grounds and several areas to relax in the shade. While the wine is only average, the venue more than makes up it. Today they had live music which was very good. We spent a relaxing couple of hours at the site.

We have been wine club members for 10 years now and have never been disappointed. The staff (Chris and Roxy) and owner Louis have always gone out of their to make sure we were taken care of. The Sangiovese is my personal fav and their sparkling wine is wonderful. You get so many perks as a club member so look... More

Had a great time. The atmosphere was better than the wine. Marty was a good bartender. They had some construction going on.

We went to Mount Palomar Winery because we learned they had a great port wine. And it was a really good port. Really pretty gardens even after fire took main area. Wine is worth the trip.

the Riesling is great for many years, but now there is a new Blush that is almost equally as good. They recently had an explosion in the viewing room, but no injuries.

We have been to this winery several times, mostly with The Grapeline, which is a Temecula Winery Tour Company. The staff was never overly friendly and seemed more interested watching that they counted off your tickets. The grounds are very nice in the upper gardens and average near the tasting areas. On our last visit, we stopped in (not on... More
