With its vast vineyard and rolling hills, guests come from near and far to visit Mount Palomar Winery. Founded in 1969, Mount Palomar Winery is one of the oldest wineries in Temecula Wine Country. “We have I think 25 different varieties of grapes,” John Petty, the winery’s executive general manager, said. “We’re known for our big red varietals and so anybody that is interested in some really great, full body red wine definitely find something to their liking at Mount Palomar.” They have some unique white wines as well. “We are one of the few wineries, I think only two wineries in all of California that actually grow what’s called a cortese grape and that makes excellent white wine, especially for the hot days out there,” Petty said.
