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. Please be advised that on the weekends (Saturday & Sundays) only Limos and Buses with a prior Limo Reservation will be allowed to enter the winery between 10am-12noon.

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. Nice tasting area with 3 bars, lots of unique gift items and a fabulous restaurant outside. And for members,... More

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.

Had a wonderful time at Ponte Winery outside of Temecula, CA. The place is absolutely stunning, top notch all around. Beautiful scenery and also got to see the rooms here as well. Very well appointed and clean. Great bar/club in the cellar or underground room area. Wine tastes great and staff were very friendly. Barrel room was great.

We made it to this year's wine stomp. Our first time although we have been coming to Ponte for years and are wine club members. The variety of food was very good although some items were served outdoors so you had to deal with the natural elements. Also, the desserts were outside which was a minus 1 point. We sat... More

I got the opportunity to participate in the 14th Annual Grape Stomp at Ponte Winery and it was a lot of fun. I highly recommend it. I thought it was going to be a lot easier but I have to say stomping grapes is a workout. The way the event was set up was perfect. First you start off with... More

My wife and went to five wineries while we were in Temecula. This was a good choice. The wines were good, especially the reds. The tasting room was decored after Tuscany.

We needed a quick, last minute place to stay and Ponte Winery had rooms available. The staff was wonderful and very pleasant. The winery and hotel grounds are really relaxing and nice.
