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.

Wow. Such a beautiful environment to enjoy delicious wine. Everyone is friendly and helpful and makes sure that your visit it top notch! We loved it so much we signed up to become wine club members! We're staying at the Inn so our stay came with two complementary tastings, but otherwise it's $20. WELL WORTH IT! My husband recommends the... More

We chose this winery amongst the many in Temecula as the wine tour offered everything on our checklist. It was simply amazing. Our guide, Yvonne, was personable, very knowledgeable about the area, wine, the history of the winery and gave a tour we thoroughly enjoyed. Simply delightful. The cheese pairing at the end of the tour astonished us as Yvonne... More

This was highly recommended and we concur. The sangria was delicious and a perfect accompaniment for my meal. We ordered the small Cheese Charcuterie appetizer as just that but it was so huge we didn't order anything else. All of the cheeses and meats were delicious and we loved the pomegranate jalapeño jelly. There were nuts and olives, crackers and... More

This was the last winery of our trip and it was probably the best. We had dinner at the restaurant the night before and had to try the wines the next day. The wines were excellent. Wines were very flavorful and full bodied. They had a shipping deal if you spent over $100. Best Chardonnay in the valley. And the... More

Came here for an overnight wine tasting trip with friends. Check in was a breeze and the regular king room was a surprisingly nicer room than I expected. All furnishings were well taken care of, and the details were everywhere - big hooks to hang towels on instead of puny ones, open shelving in bath to store items on and... More

Have been a wine club member at Ponte for over 8 years, we love their wines and love their facilities not to mention their staff. Yvonne is one of the best and is a big part of why we enjoy Ponte.

We hadn't planned on wine tasting at Ponte but had dinner there ordering a wonderful Sangiovese. So we decided to try it and joined the club. We tried several Temecula wineries and this is the only club we joined. Our other favorite was the Dopiella. Attentive staff and some pretty good shopping.
