My wife and I were on a one day DIY tour of Temecula Wine Country. Mount Palomar wasn’t originally on my list of places to visit, but a trusted winemaker friend from back home recommended a stop here. The complex is like a very large garden spot, with multiple levels and terrific views, and is well maintained and quite lovely.... More

I want to thank Sam for the experience he provided us. The tequilas were great and progressively got better. Can't wait till our shipment arrives. We highly recommend trying it out!

My wife and I stopped by to visit and use a "groupon" coupon for a discounted tasting. We were greeted and I showed the groupon which stated it was good for $15 off a regular tasting... The front desk person told me they could not honor the coupon because it was for a weekend tasting and this was a Monday.... More

Hi Bushfamily – Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We’re sorry that there was a misunderstanding regarding your Groupon purchase, we hope we can explain it a little more clearly. To clarify, the Groupon offer is not a coupon that takes a dollar amount off at the door, it is a pre-paid wine tasting purchased... More

I live about two hours from Temecula and go up there once or twice a year for wine tasting, so this review is a combination of those experiences. This winery has great tastings, and the pours are not light. I am a member, so not sure about the cost. Members get great discounts though, as a side note, and they... More

We used to go to Mount Palomar on a regular basis for picnics and wine tasting. We hadn't been in ages though and went back to visit. It was completely different! One of the wine stewards told us that they had had a fire and had to rebuild. The tasting room is now at the front, on the left, as... More

Thank you for stopping by, we're always happy to have previous visitors come back for another visit. We did have to rebuild the front area after a fire damaged the building, and we're happy to hear that you liked the results. I have good news for you! The Solera Cream Sherry is back in stock, and it's still produced in... More

The winery site is very picturesque. The winery was fairly empty when we arrived on a weekday afternoon. As we had visited other places that afternoon I was really only interested in having a bite to eat. Selections we fairly good but service was very lacking, very slow, to the point of almost not ordering . And it took some... More

For the price, the wine tasting followed by a lunch overlooking the vineyard is why we return to Mt Palomar winery every time. The risotto and meat tray are the two things we usually always order with a bottle of any of their good wines.
