The tasting room sits up on a hill overlooking the vineyards with a beautiful outside patio area and live entertainment (at least on the weekends). The tasting room is large and every single one of the staff is friendly, knowledgeable about the wines, and eager to please. We became members a while ago and really enjoy the wine club members'...

The patio is open with a beautiful fountain and breathtaking views. The tour was very interesting and informative. Ken, the general manager and owner is warm and friendly... More

This was one if our stops. The grounds are very nice. We met one of the owners while we were there. We enjoyed learning about wines in the area. They also have some fun dinners and brunches. Check them out on their website.

My husband purchased a 6 taste package for $13. He enjoyed several of their red wines.However, our sever who was initially helpful walked away for lengthy periods and seemed totally disinterested in making a sale so we left without a purchase!

We enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day Brunch this morning. While a soloist played beautiful acoustic guitar we wove our way through gastronomic delicacies artfully arranged in two well placed rooms. We started with just carved prime rib and a mountain of crab claws and a plate with Just Bacon. Perfect Bacon! We also had the proverbial baby's arm shrimp with... More

This is one of the upscale wineries in Temecula. The entire tasting room was designed quite nice. The glass floor is a very nice touch. Very friendly and knowledgeable personnel. Good to very good red line. Not exceptional but well worth sampling. Mandatory stop in Temecula Wine Country.

My husband and I stopped by Monte de Oro on a Friday. Not a lot of people when we went (we were there when they just opened) and it was pretty quiet. Their tasting fee for 2 people was 30 dollars. I normally drink only red wines...But I did enjoy their sparkling wine...Also-I really enjoyed their Cabernet Sauvignon. The gal... More

We decided on a day trip to Temecula from Oceanside, and Monte De Oro was by far the best tasting experience of the wineries we visited. Richie took great care of us, and because of his great service we decided to check a bag on the way home so we could buy some wine. The wines were also very good... More

Was in the area for a couple of wine stops and stopped by here. Generous tasting of 6 for $13 weekdays and enjoyed all of the tastings. But I liked the Congruity and the 100% estate grown Petite Sira. If you have time try the food parings. The tasting room was wonderful and spacious with the high vaulted ceilings and... More
