Came out for lunch. They ran out of shot glasses but Diana was friendly and informative about the area. Enjoyed talking with Penny and Jordan as well as we’re black label members. Better experience with those 3 around than the last time we came out to Monte in 19’

Monte de Oro is the perfect venue to taste amazing wines, try outstanding food and enjoy conversation with friends and family. I enjoyed the Cabernet Franc with my pizza, while my wife had Bolle de Oro with here salad.

Penny served us and was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Please try this winery when in Temecula.

Our server was amazing, but I can't remember her name. The person who sat us, a young man, was somewhat rude and left us standing and waiting and sat other people who arrived after we did before us.

We normally love the winery and the ambiance but he kind of put a damper on things in the beginning, but we got over it and overall enjoyed ourselves.

One of the top wineries in the Temecula Valley! Their service here sets them apart from the others. There is an extensive patio where you can get wine flights for tasting and food as well. We have been there on numerous occasions and the food is some of the best available. We recommend their red wines, they are some of the best in the valley.
