Mount Palomar is one of the older wineries in the Temecula appellation. They produce a number of very good quality wines. The most important in my view is their Cream Sherry, produced in the traditional Solera method and aged outside in oak barrels. This method produces a wine of great depth and complexity. It is a desert wine; not for... More

My husband and I went to see a concert here on a Sat night. It was our first time at Mt Palomar Winery. We arrived about 6:30 and there were already a few people there. The concert was outside on a grassy area with ample seating and beautiful fountains. We decided to sit under the covered patio area next to... More

I had not been to Mt.P in about 2 years. Last time I was there I loved it. We spent the entire afternoon and left with a case of wine. I couldn't wait to go back and pick up some of their Sherry and Solanus. We went on Saturday. I was so disappointed. Their old tasting room is gone replaced... More

This was our first time attending the wine club dinner in September. They have a Lovely property and there must have been 900+ people. They had a buffet for dinner including tri-tip, chicken, lasagne, salads,etc. and multiple appetizers. They are pouring all of the wines in the September shipment and it's all unlimited - wow we love this winery! This... More

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

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.
