My experience at Monte De Oro was over all ok. I thought the food was over priced for what we got. It was very tasty but unfortunate the sandwiches we ordered were quite dry and barely filled with steak and pork. We were eating a lot of bread since they were not proportionally prepared so that was disappointing to us, again given the price of our meals. The fries however, were really good. I was pleased with the unique seasoning and the Cabernet was my favorite from their selection. Overall, I have had better food and ambience at other wineries nearby so unfortunately I won’t be returning to Monte De Oro.

Monte De Oro has a large and really nice patio. The food is excellent. My husband had the Farmhouse burger and thought it was amazing. The wines are delicious and atmosphere happy. What’s not to love about enjoying some fine wine outside on a beautiful day. Our waitress, Becca, was an exceptional hostess ensuring we had everything we needed.

Monte D’oro winery is a terrific place to have lunch. The menu, while not the most extensive has enough choices to satisfy most. Our Bruchetta was without mozzarella cheese, but still so delicious with its pesto and balsamic glaze. The charcuterie platter was fresh and tasty, enough for 2. It had some interesting cheeses and fresh meats. The wines are also terrific, especially most of the reds with our favorite, a red blend called Simplexity, which is a great name for it.
The setting is beautiful with enough COVID space in this outdoor eatery for safe dining. All staff wore masks and were very helpful. 😋

I have never been to this winery… We actually went for lunch, we wanted to find a pretty setting to take my mother-in-law to since she has not been out of her place for nine months! (Not a parking lot with umbrellas) It was a beautiful setting, and the food was excellent. The service was very good and they definitely went by all the Covid guidelines.
And did I say the wine was good too! We will definitely be back!

Our dining & wine tasting experience here was a pleasant one! The grounds are lovely! Including the large patio area where we sat. Good Service too.
A bit expensive to eat there! We would not have chosen to eat there if we hadn’t had a gift voucher for the wine tasting!

This is one of the best wineries in the Temecula Valley! The food is consistently very good and the service is excellent. The patio has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Highly recommend it. We enjoy it so much we became members of their wine club.
