    Great food and service at the restaurant!
    We went to the restaurant on a Thursday night at 5pm. Our server was so good and personable! The outside seating was perfect, and they turned the heaters on when it started getting colder. The food was awesome, and the bread and dipping sauce was to die for! We started off with the Brussel sprouts (which usually aren't my favorite but was very good!) My husband got Bolognese and I got the salmon; both were so good! The wine was very good also. I would totally recommend.

    Beautiful location and tasting room, but not the best as far as experience.
    Beautiful tasting room and grounds to enjoy, had many great tastes especially the crisp whites and sparkling rose. 4 stars only because our server didn't seem to be interested in selling any wine, membership or offering a 'final extra' taste. Unusual for this at winery in any region; it's nice to not get the hard sell but felt like they weren't interested in return business. It's unfortunate as we were going to return to buy some of our favorites but our second winery visit that day went over the top and we bought a case there. I would definitely recommend for the wine and experience and if you're not interested in buying.

    Temps have been in the triple digits and Ponte has there pool open and the Pool Bar and you can get small bites to eat. Beer, cocktails, soda and we had chips/salsa and guacamole. Kate was bartender and she went around the pool to take orders. We didn't have to go to the bar. Kate was friendly and helpful. The bar at the Bouquet Restaurant is open and we listened to music. Emily was the bartender and did a great job. We listened to music in the Cellar Lounge and Julia was our server and she was also very good. We had breakfast in the Bouquet Restaurant and Kendall was our server and she great. I'll be back to Ponte soon. Our room was comfortable and we had a balcony. Caitlin is the hotel manager and she is friendly and attentive to making sure your stay is comfortable.

The best whites we had in Temecula. The grounds are spectacular and very romantic. Great place to sit, sip delicious wine and gaze into someone's eyes. Beautiful roses everywhere.

We did a tasting today. First time here. We've been to 11 wineries in Temecula so far and this was, by far, our least favorite. The wines were decent, at least some of them but the server was ICE COLD. We don't pay $30 for 6 tastings to have a robot serve us. No information about the wines, just which do you want and I'm excited to check off the box to get you out of here sooner. Perhaps even more disappointing is that we stayed at the hotel for 3 nights ($500 / night) and there was no discount of any kind. I'd rather visit a winery with not as great of wines but cool staff. This winery misses on both, unfortunately. FYI - the hotel is awesome.

Great winery and the restaurant was outstanding. So many wineries to choose from, but we were very happy with this one and had an enjoyable time.

this place has been and always will be my favorite winery in Temecula and in the whole world. I have been coming here for so many years, I love their chardonnays and the general ambience. Lots of time on the weekends They'll have live music which is great for just hanging out and enjoying a glass of wine to unwind a little bit after a long week.

As far as the grounds they are beautiful. The people working in the tasting room were a bit rude and tried to get us to quickly finish our tastings. Easy to get ignored in this tasting room as well. The wines were average. The boutique was very nice but very very expensive. The restaurant looked amazing and we will definitely try that, but just looking at the tasting I had to give it a 3.
