Monte De Oro Winery

Enjoy a breathtaking 180-degree panoramic view of Temecula Wine Country while you enjoy award-winning wines.

For unparalleled scenery, exceptional service and an award-winning wine selection, visit Temecula’s Monte De Oro Winery, a first-class wine-tasting destination. Set on 72 vineyard acres, the winery’s grapes are carefully cultivated in order to produce the best possible wine in Southern California. Paired with an elegantly designed open-air facility with panoramic views of the Temecula Valley, a Monte de Oro experience awes oenophiles on every level.

A major attraction at the winery is its 2,500 square-foot Main Tasting Room complete with cathedral ceilings, two tasting bars, six alabaster chandeliers and a glass floor that gives its guests a sneak-peak of the winery’s barrel cellar below. Tasting-room hours run from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, with signature tours and tastings available on the weekends. Staff members provide top-notch hospitality, educating guests about each of the estate-grown wines and why Temecula has emerged as a quality wine-growing region. Monte De Oro has two VIP rooms that can hold 60-70 people for private or corporate and charity events and a large-scale outdoor patio that can support large-scale concerts, movie nights, weddings and banquets, providing added and postcard-worthy appeal.

Sixty-five percent of the winery’s grape harvest results in red wines, with the other 35 percent in white wines. Monte De Oro takes great pride in wines, having earned over 85-plus Platinum, Double Gold, Gold, “Best of” and 90+ point awards since opening in 2010. One of Monte de Oro’s hallmark wines is its propriety owners’ blend called Synergy 65, made from five estate-grown wines. Not to be outdone, Monte De Oro’s “sleeper wine,” its Cabernet Franc, was voted Best of California in 2011 at the California State Fair.

In addition to a line-up of stellar wines, the Tuscan-inspired venue has expanded its experience to include culinary palate-pleasers from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. Each weekend, Monte De Oro’s Bistro features a menu of delectable entrees, such as panini sandwiches, mac-n-cheese balls, fresh salads and meat-and-cheese plates that change seasonally to match the different wine offerings. Customers get to experience the wine-and-food tasting scenario in a sophisticated, yet warm and inviting atmosphere with open seating on the patio. Also savor MDO Bistro Thursday-Sunday and relax to live music at “Sounds of Sunday” concerts

For a truly memorable wine experience filled with fun and relaxation among the vines, visit Monte De Oro Winery. It is an oasis of wine excellence in Southern California. The venue is at 35820 Rancho California Road in Temecula. Call (951) 491-6551 or visit
