Attraction details
Owner description: Located in the heart of Temecula Wine Country, Ponte Winery sits on more than 300 acres of vineyards. The winery offers guests a relaxing “Day in the Country” experience, with its spacious rustic-style tasting room, al fresco dining and elegant Italian gardens. The winery’s goal is to create an approachable, memorable experience that welcomes both new and experienced wine lovers with the motto, “If you like it, it’s good wine!” Visitors can enjoy tours of the winemaking process, participate in special events like the Annual Grape Stomp Festival, or work with the winery’s event planners to create an exceptional wine country wedding or other group event. With its picturesque setting, approachable wines, farm-fresh cuisine and quintessential wine country events, Ponte Winery is one of the most sought-after wine destinations in Southern California. The Tasting Room is open 7 days a week, from 10am-5pm. Tastings include 6 pours for $20 per person. Closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Please be advised that on the weekends (Saturday & Sunday) only Limos and Buses with a prior Limo Reservation will be allowed to enter the winery between 10am-12pm.

We had such a valuable time from start to finish. The Winery contacted us prior to our visit to add some finishing touches to make our anniversary special. The service, room, atmosphere, fitness room... Etc were all fantastic. We felt very taken care of & walk away with a lovely memory.

We always stop here for lunch and have never been disappointed. The winery and tasting room is good but our best part is the patio restaurant. Always good with fresh food and a good variety on the menu. Posted on our adventure by grinandbrakeit.com

Ponte has it all for your one-stop winery experience. Great wine-tasting within up the confines of a large, well-edited upscale gift shop. A fantastic outdoor, canopied reataurant in the middle of gardens and vineyard. Vistas beyond of fields and fields of grape vines. Rooms available for group events. And the restaurant, oh, it is goooood. Service was very good, friendly; menu quite interesting, and food was well-prepared. Salad lacked flavor but mahi mahi was delicious. All-in-all, combine the atmosphere, wine-tasting, meal and service, and you get a lovely mini-vacation.

Not sure why that person says it is overpriced. $20 is what you will pay these days to just PARK at a major sports arena! Get over it and enjoy life, people!

The Ponte Family Estate Winery is a great place to visit on a Saturday afternoon whether with that special someone or a group of friends. From the moment we entered we were treated as special guests. Hey, this isn't the only winery in town, so , Amy and staff treat you like they want you there!

There happened to be a wedding on this particular cold, wet and rainy Saturday but the bride and groom were just as happy as they could be.

Just check the closing time and arrive well in advance so that you can take your time and enjoy all that the Ponte Family Winery has to offer. Sip, sip and browse.

ENJOY!

The winery itself is pretty, but the tasting was overpriced at $20 per person. The staff was not friendly and we felt rushed through our tastings. Go next door to South Coast... a zillion times better!!!
