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:
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.

Vintage furniture vignettes
Carts (coffee, gelato, churro, etc.)
