We visited to do a wine tasting, not visiting the restaurant. Fine enthusiastic service, nice selection of wines, and we found three different types we wound up buying. Nice gardens and outdoor seating with a busy restaurant. They will ship wines out of state which we appreciated.

Used to be great, has gone downhill fast. Great employees are now gone, make sure you ask them why when you are there. So many better options in the area, especially ones that don't treat their employees poorly.

One of the more popular winery in Temecula, a constant stream of people. We only ate desert because we were too full and all the desert selection were very good. The lunch menu look good and the portion looks bigger than Avensole. They have a hotel section too so we might check it out next time we come. Nice staff and good service. Get the wine flight to go with your meal, great way to try the wine without fighting the crowd at the tasting room. Pinot blush and “the T” we’re great recommendation y our server.

While the food and wine were amazing (the shrimp summer salad is beyond description and we both keep returning to Ponte for the Doppietta wine), I want to give extra kudos to Lynn at the restaurant. Our arrival was delayed due to a local farm tour running an hour late. I called Lynn, explained the situation and she moved our reservation out an hour. The restaurant was super busy on Sunday so this is a much bigger deal than it sounds!!! Honestly it would have put a serious damper on our anniversary celebration if Lynn was not so helpful, cheerful and accommodating. Cheers from this thankful San Diego couple.

We used to members here ages ago and we happened to be driving through the area and stopped in.
We purchased 3 bottles of Beverino and inquired if they could comp a tastings because of this purchase.
We were hastily told 'no'.
We were also met with shock and disdain from the associates working at the front desk (Michael included), appalled that such a request was made.
We obviously enjoy the Beverino and quite possibly would have enjoyed other wines if we were permitted to do a tasting.
But alas that didn’t happen and we will never know.
What used to be a wonderful experience at your winery has become ‘profits over people’ and the new status quo.
I called your establishment after and attempted to speak with a manager and ‘Melissa’ didn’t think I needed to so that was kinda odd? She simply refused to transfer me to a manager.

Typical Temecula winery that cant get their act together so they decide to put in a pool and try to mimic Vegas instead of producing quality wine and enhancing customer experiences.

We won't will be visiting or recommending your business to anyone else moving forward.

I will always return. This place is phenomenal there is so much room to sit in the back they have a beautiful gift room. You can literally purchase anything if you're just visiting Temecula this is highly recommended I really did enjoy this location they give you a card to stamp as your tasting all the different wines please check this location out I had such a wonderful time be sure not to drink and drive. That is the right thing to do.

My brother and his wife took my partner and me here for my birthday. Visiting sunny California is what this vineyard is all about. The service was excellent! The white wine I ordered was a sweet nectar from the gods themselves. It paired excellently with my food, which was the sea, a pasta dish with tons of seafood in a light cream sauce. Delicious! In fact the burger my partner had did not last long on his plate! Everything was great. We told the waitress that it was my birthday and my sister in law's and they brought out a really nice dish of ice cream covered in carmel sauce and shaved chocolate. It was all so very great!

Enjoyed the wine tasting at the Tasting Room. For $25 you get 6 tastings from a nice selection of reds, whites and dessert wines. Carolyn was very knowledgeable explaining each wine and very nice. They take every precaution during COVID

I love everything about Ponte, the wine is sublime. The Beverino is a chilled red and it’s everything. Seriously all other wines wish they were this one.
Service at the restaurant is always on point, the food is heavenly and you can even buy a bottle of wine in the tasting room and the restaurant will open a cold one for you to enjoy it with your meal. Join this wine club if that’s an option because it’s worth it. We have even stayed at the inn and I am looking forward to another parents night out so we can come stay again.

We really enjoyed both people who served us and their knowledge! We were disappointed on the fact they couldn’t send to our state as well it was a little pricey.
