About

On WeddingWire since 2010

Mount Palomar Winery is a wedding venue located in Temecula, California.

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 unequaled.

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 host 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 9 am 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.

A Dream Venue!

If you're looking to get married at a winery, look no further. Mount Palomar is breathtakingly beautiful, and a top notch venue to work with! It's situated at the top of a hill so the views from your ceremony site are incredible, plus the outdoor courtyard for the reception is dreamy! This was the 5th venue we ended up touring and after we visited, we were teary eyed because we knew we didn't even need to keep looking. Not to mention, it's extremely affordable compared to other venues in Temecula/SD/LA! Plus it is DOG FRIENDLY :)

Shellie was our POC from the very beginning and was with me from 9AM to 11PM for my wedding. She is amazing to work with! She really knows the venue inside and out, is on top of her game, and never missed a beat! I work in the event planning industry and as soon as I met Shellie, I knew I was in good hands. Because I ended up hiring vendors myself (most of which were on a list provided to me by Shellie), I didn't need to hire an outside coordinator. Shellie and her team did all of the coordination the day of. The day of my wedding went absolutely perfectly. The venue looked pristine, we started on time (and stuck to schedule thanks to Shellie), food was tasty, and due to the venue staff's hard work, I didn't worry about a thing and just got to enjoy my wedding like every bride should! TRUST ME (I work in the event planning industry), this is an AMAZING venue to get married at!

Breathtaking Venue

We had the most amazing experience at Mount Palomar! We visited 10 venues all across SoCal in 3 days and when we saw Mount Palomar, the venue was absolutely breathtaking.

When I saw those columns to walk down the aisle to it was so stunning, we immediately said yes! Then, when we saw the barrel room for an after party we were like, where do we sign?

Shellie and the entire staff were great to work with - highly communicative, effective, and kind. They literally make it so easy for you with all the vendor recs and timeline specifics. You don't have to worry much!

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.
