The staff in the wine tasting bar are cheerful and very knowledgeable. They made wonderful suggestions for our group after asking us what type of wines we like and what we look for in a good wine. Also, the atmosphere of this winery made you feel like you had traveled to another country. The surprise of the day was the... More

I've traveled the world and I've been to numerous wineries & vineyards, Mount Palomar is one of the most beautiful wineries I've ever been to. Upon arrival you feel like you're transported to an Italian vineyard. Beautiful landscaping and intimate. The wines were wonderful, so much so we bought a bottle and shared it while enjoying the water feature. This... More

We came to the area for a wedding. We visited Mount Palomar Winery the day before the wedding (Wedding is at another venue) with family and friends. All of the wine I tasted (all reds) were very good to excellent. I really enjoyed the Debut, Merlot, and Meritage. Others had some different favorites. Many of the ladies really enjoyed the... More

Our favorite winery setting....beautiful grounds...very Tuscany looking. The tasting room had a wonderful charm to it as well. Our "server" for the tasting was very friendly and enjoyable. The wines were good. Look for a coupon online....we were able to get 2 for 1 tasting!

After four months of searching, we booked Mount Palomar today as our wedding venue. It is absolutely spectacular and we love the views at the top on the ceremony lawn. Did a little tasting after as well and really enjoyed the Shorty's Bistro White & the Debut red. I am sure we will be spending a lot more time at... More

The grounds here are so pretty - I can see why they book so many weddings. They have really nice wines, and a terrific onsite restaurant, Shorty's Bistro. Everyone who works here is very friendly and helpful.

I bought a groupon for $20 that included 12 wine tastings for 2 people and hummus with pita. Great value! Hummus was home made and I would recommend to taste their dessert wines.
