If you're coming for the party stick to the "big box" wineries. If you're coming for the wine then this should be your next stop. Nestled off the trodden path, this family operated yet well crafted winery is almost 100% estate grapes. In the oft overlooked Temecula wine country these guys are players in quality wine production. My favorite varietal... More

Our first visit to Palumbo. The staff here are welcoming and unpretentious and they did not mind that we had children with us. One of the owner's sons gave us a very interesting tour of their winery as he shared the story of this family run winery and showed us how he is involved in making their wines. You can... More

Temecula is a unique locale for wine tasting. It is unlike every other wine tasting area in California. It’s closeness to San Diego makes it more than a tasting destination. It makes it partly a "bachelorette get as drunk as you can" destination. If you want good Yelp reviews, just serve margaritas and have Drake playing. I have no problem... More

OK, now it's not a secret anymore, but Palumbo is the only winery we kept our club membership through thick and thin. They were one of the first to concentrate on quality, full bodied red wines, and are family owned & operated. They luckily do not allow bus loads of people, so usually a pretty quiet atmosphere.

My family has been coming to Palumbo for years. It's been really great watching them grow. They are a boutique winery, and in my opinion one of the best. Top notch in every aspect. Their property is awesome. You can bring your own food and enjoy a bottle at one of their tables overlooking Temecula's valleys and watch the sunset.... More

The venue is absolutely beautiful! We visited in early May. Even though it was a rainy day, this place did not disappoint. The wine is amazing, there's a waiting list to join the wine club (that should tell you something) The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly, they took exceptional care of our group. Definitely will keep this on our... More

My husband and I always visit Palumbo if we're in Temecula. This latest visit no exception. Delightful boutique winery with lovely views and even better wine. This visit once again was a treat. Wines poured were delectable and the young man pouring was knowledgeable and friendly. Great experience!!!

This winery has a family feel as the owner son was out shooting hoops when we arrived. The winery is small but very beautifully landscaped and hardscaped with attention to lots of details. The wine is very good, with the potential to be outstanding! The staff was very friendly and attentive as well. The owner is also an author of... More

The property was nice but the wines were not to my liking.......just not my style. I'm not a red wine drinker the the white that had I didn't care for.
