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.

With such great reviews, I decided that Ponte was a must-see on our one day DIY wine tour of Temecula. We had already stopped at a couple of other wineries, and due partly to tasting fatigue and also to cost consciousness, we decided that we would just grab a glass of wine here, rather than take in a full tasting....

Thank you for your review of Ponte Winery. We regret to hear that your experience fell short of our standards of excellence. We do offer the option in our Tasting Room to turn in your tasting card of six, one ounce pours for a glass of wine of your choice, however, the cost to do so would have still been... More

We received free coupons from Ponte Vineyard Hotel upon registration. After check in we walked to the Vineyard put our names on the list for a seat in their restaurant and began the tasting. We loved the sparkling rose and their Cabernet and purchased 2 bottles of each which enabled us to join their wine club. By joining the wine... More

A beautiful day at a very nice vineyard. We came here with my brother and his wife. They have been many times. It was really nice. Gorgeous views of surrounding vineyards and mountains. Restaurant was fantastic! White Beverino was great! We did a tasting and sampled six of their 18 or so offered wines. A great day.

Beautiful modern winery. Main area has a gift shop and two tasting areas. Had a tasting of six wines - good variety of reds, whites, sparkling and sweet. Something for everyone. Nice outdoor restaurant and beautiful grounds with benches.

Ponte is a beautiful winery! Great wines and a fabulous Gift Shop. You can always find something special to buy at the Gift Shop. We belong to the Wine Club and enjoy their wines both white and red. The restaurant on the grounds is in a lovely garden setting and they have great food.

The views were gorgeous… We didn't do the tasting but the grounds were beautiful including the bathroom! We had lunch and I was not impressed with the food at all but the service with Kyle was spectacular! The homemade bread they bring out was quite delicious… Ask for it warmed up. We shared a meatloaf dinner at $24 and a... More

The wine tasting here was a decent deal for $20 - 6 pours so you can try pretty much everything they have. My qualm is that the wines I liked were $30+ per bottle, and frankly I can name several Spanish reds I like more for under $15 a bottle. Maybe I'm a cheap skate, but it's the truth. The... More
