Why Mount Palomar is such a popular wedding destination:

In the past decade, Temecula wine country has been one of the most sought-after destination wedding locations in southern California. Mount Palomar Winery is one of the founding wineries of the Temecula valley, establishing itself high atop our hill in 1969. Because of our premier location, our views are unequalled.

Couple that with our award-winning wines, outstanding weather, and close proximity to San Diego, Los Angeles and the Palm Springs desert, it’s no wonder that we are booked years in advance.

What sets Mount Palomar apart from the other wineries?

Our property offers a spectacular hillside space to accommodate intimate weddings of 75, to extravaganzas of 600+.

Mount Palomar Winery is one of the elite few wineries that hosts a full liquor license. Not only may you choose from our excellent wine and beer menus, but we have a full bar available for you to offer to your guests.

Because your day is “your” day, we only host one wedding per day in our venue. No rushing around or feeling like you have to hurry up to leave; our 9am arrival time gives you the chance to relax and soak it all in.

Our flexibility allows outside catering, including those for cultural celebrations.

To add to the festivities, our couples have included southern California flair with food trucks from:

In-N-Out

Chick-fil-A

Taco Trucks

Mount Palomar Winery is pet/animal friendly!

Whether you want to bring your fur baby for the day or enhance your guest list with elephants, llamas, goats or horses, all are welcome at Mount Palomar Winery.

Our spatial versatility also allows you to complete your vision with unique additions such as:

Classic cars

Vintage furniture vignettes

Lounge areas

Carts (coffee, gelato, churro, etc.)

Live food stations (paella, paan, doughnut, etc.)

Music is the life of the party! Our couples have hosted a myriad of options when planning their musical entertainment for the evening. From brass bands and string quartets to live rock bands and silent discos, our couples definitely know how to party.

Not ready for that party to end? We have a barrel room that will allow you to host your very own after party.

    Incredible Venue and Staff !!

    My husband and I got married on 8/27/21 after postponing from our May 1st date. Shellie went above and beyond to make sure our day ran smoothly. Our wedding cake didn’t hold up well in the heat and she worked so hard behind the scenes without us knowing to make sure that we had a beautiful cake to cut during the reception. A very big thank you to Nothing Bundt Cake that stayed open to save the day for us. All of the staff was incredible and took special care of us and our families and we could not be more thankful. The venue itself was so so beautiful and and we could not have imagined a more perfect day.

    Amazing Experience!

    Our wedding at Mount Palomar Winery was better than we could have ever imagined!

    When we got engaged, we knew we wanted to get married at a winery in Temecula. We hadn’t been to Mount Palomar previously, but based on the reviews and photos, we scheduled an appointment there and at one other place. From the very beginning, it was clear that Mount Palomar was the winner. After our tour, we agreed that there was no reason to look anywhere else. The ceremony and reception sites are breathtaking, and are situated away from the public area of the winery. This is very important if you don’t want the general public wandering in on your wedding day or taking pictures. Mount Palomar also hosts just one wedding per day, so you know you will receive all of their attention.

    Sandy was our wedding guru and venue coordinator from the day of our tour through our wedding day, and we couldn’t have done it without her! She is very patient and always quick to answer questions and handle special requests. At first we were considering hiring an outside wedding coordinator to handle the planning throughout the months before and the day-of details, but Sandy convinced us that this added expense was not necessary. She was right! If you already have a vision and are planning on selecting and meeting with vendors yourself, Mount Palomar handles the rest. Sandy provided us with a list of trusted vendors, and we chose many of them from this list. This is certainly the way to go if you want excellent professionals familiar with the venue and the staff.

    Catering is part of the package pricing at Mount Palomar and is handled by Temecula Catering. There are several options, including a buffet, plated choice or dual plated. The food tasting was set up directly by Sandy. We were a little nervous at first, because we didn’t have a choice if we didn’t like the food. However, everything at the tasting was very good and it was hard to narrow down our selections.

    Throughout the months preceding the wedding, we were in regular contact with Sandy who coordinated with all our vendors, worked with us on the layout and details of the ceremony and reception, and helped us create a timeline. Sandy arranged an in-person meeting and walk through of the site, about a month before the wedding, to ensure that everything was in order. Mount Palomar also provides a separate day-of coordinator, and we worked with Kimberly. She was amazing too! Kimberly ran our rehearsal the day before our wedding and made sure that everyone was comfortable with the details of the ceremony. She even pinned on the groom’s and groomsmen’s boutonnieres as none of them knew how to do it…..she’s a lifesaver! The most important part was that on the day of the wedding, we didn’t have to worry about anything. Our wedding day went so smoothly, with none of the glitches you often hear about. The weather in early October was beautiful, the venue was set up perfectly to our specifications, the entire day ran on schedule, and the food and wine were great. We received numerous comments from our guests that it was the best wedding they had ever attended and the most gorgeous wedding venue.

    Our wedding day was an amazing experience that we will never forgot. We cannot thank Sandy, Kimberly and the staff at Mount Palomar enough for making our wedding dreams come true.
