Temecula’s Miramonte Winery | Best Temecula Wineries
Miramonte Winery Temecula is the next stop on our Temecula wine tour.Our goal with Exploring Temecula is to document every single winery in Temecula, give our pros and cons, and determine whether or not we would consider becoming members. Miramonte Winery in Temecula is one of the first wineries you’re going to come to off Rancho California Road. When compared to other wineries, this makes Miramonte Winery very convenient because the drive time is only 10 to 15 minutes.Wine Country Inn Temecula can get busy, especially on weekends, so not having to deal with traffic is obviously a positive.
At the end of this blog post and video, we have included a Temecula home search. If you have any interest in moving to the area, please reach out. We are a Greenleaf real estate and appraisal company and have been selling and appraising real estate in the area for over 20 years. We would be happy to help with any of your needs and answer any questions in regards to the local real estate market.
When You Get There (Parking)
Much of the parking is on dirt, and you will have a little bit of a walk up a hill. If you have a group of people, we suggest dropping them off at the front door and then going to find a parking spot.
We love it; it’s everything that you would expect in a winery. It’s laid-back, everybody is having a great time, and it’s always busy enough to feel like a party. Every time we have visited Miramonte Winery in Temecula, both the outside area with the tables and the bistro were busy, as well as the tasting room inside. The cabanas overlooking the vineyards and sweeping mountain views are among the features that we believe set Miramonte Winery Temecula apart. We feel it’s a really unique feature and something you should definitely think about if you’re with a group of people. Make sure that you make reservations for a cabana here.
The Flower Hill Bistro
We have only eaten at the Flower Hill Bistro a few times, and we have enjoyed everything we have ever ordered. It has the typical winery menu of cheese, bread plates, and salads and will cost anywhere from $14 to $30 depending on whether it’s an appetizer or a course. We usually go, buy a bottle of wine, and split an appetizer. Here is the Flower Hill Bistro menu. Temecula does get pretty hot in the summer, and one of the benefits of The Bistro at Miramonte is that they have misters that help cool it off. To be clear, it can still get quite hot.
Music and Entertainment at Miramonte Winery
This is one of those things that keeps trying to lure us back to Miramonte Winery on the weekends. Both Friday and Saturday nights, from 6 to 9 p.m., they usually have live music. This winery gets hopping and is loads of fun. The tasting area is packed with people, both inside and out. Personally, we much prefer the ambiance and atmosphere of any bar. You’re outside, people are very friendly and talkative, and it truly is an enjoyable night out if this is what you’re going for.
We have been to many different wineries all over the world, and one of the most fascinating things for us is wine tours. It’s a great way to learn the history, and the process from growing the grapes all the way through to making the wine, and to be able to sample both wine and food. Miramonte has wine tours that are going to run around $75 per person. One of the great things about being a wine member is that the price drops to $35 and you can bring a guest. What a great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday!
We are always looking for new wineries to join. If you like to go out for a drink once or twice a week, joining 4-5 wineries will undoubtedly save you money in the long run. You get eight tastings a month, and each time you visit Miramonte Winery, you can have up to four tastings. This is extremely useful if you enjoy bringing friends or family along on your wine-tasting excursions. We always make sure that the wineries we join allow us to do this. There are wineries that will give you a tasting daily, but only two. This really doesn’t work out if you consistently have friends and family visiting. We would much rather be able to share our tastings with friends and family than go every day and have two ourselves.
Miramonte Winery memberships are going to range anywhere from $35 to $60 a month, depending on which wine package you choose. Reds, whites, sangria, or a mixture of both will be your choices. We never really critique wines in our blogs or videos, as everybody has their own opinion. We are more interested in the experience of having fun while meeting new people.
Would We Consider Joining Miramonte?
Because of the coronavirus, we have really slowed down on visiting wineries. We have narrowed it down to five or six, and Miramonte is one of them. Every time we go to Miramonte Winery, we have tons of fun, we love the people and the atmosphere, and it has gorgeous views to top it off. Another thing that we think separates Miramonte from any other are the Friday and Saturday Night Live music sessions and how lively they get. For us, after a long week of work, we really enjoy spending one night during the weekend going out, having some good wine, listening to some great music, and meeting new people. Miramonte Winery is just what the doctor ordered.
