Mount Polamar Winery Description

Mount Palomar Winery has an enviable location in a compact, low-lying area amid olive trees, patios, and vineyards. The rustic “old-world” feel of the place immediately entices visitors to relax. The winery offers a weekend barbecue, as well as a delightful patio with fountains, gardens, statuary, and covered verandas that allow visitors to soak up the ambiance and enjoy the wines.

Inside the old barn is a full deli, an interesting gift shop, a spirited staff and plenty of classic Bordeaux- and Italian-style wines to taste. There is an underground cavern, too, and plenty of tasting counters inside and out.

Mount Palomar Winery is a 315-acre wine estate, with 40 acres planted to vineyards. Plans are in the works for new plantings, a larger winery, a restaurant, and a resort and spa.

This was a really relaxing experience. I thoroughly enjoyed all the wine I tasted and I would recommend it for all wine lovers. I was shocked to have tasted such good wine. The people were knowledgeable about the wine and were able to answer all the questions I had to ask.

tasting room was small and crowded. have merchandise in with tasting counter. long lines at registrar because of set up. wine club changed from being open wine tasting for members no matter how many times a week they came in. cream sherry is great reds are good to. there is a new wine maker who first harvest was 2007 so it will be interesting how wine will be. also new ownership since january 2007 and this has changed atmosphere for members and even old staff who may have left. I don't recommend stopping simply because of the difference from being owned by Peter Poole and tasting room managed by donna. Ponte family winery has the atmosphere what mount palomar use to have.
