Meritage At Callaway Vineyard & Winery
The only thing better than the views at this gorgeous, farm-to-table restaurant is the food. The seasonal menu offerings feature fresh produce, grown in their own gardens and greenhouse. Here, everything is made from scratch, and you can really taste the difference! The menu also pairs beautifully with Callaway’s award-winning wines! The wine, the menu, and the ambiance here can’t be beat!
Sangio’s Deli At Cougar Vineyard & Winery
If you’re looking for something a little more simple, you’ll love the fan-favorite offerings and relaxed atmosphere at Sangio’s Deli. They’ve got a killer bruschetta, meatballs, raviolis and hand tossed pizza to nosh on while you sip on some delicious Italian varietals. I recommend dining al fresco and enjoying some of the best views in the valley.
Bistro At Miramonte Winery
The Bistro at Miramonte has a lot more to offer than just charcuterie boards. They also serve up an amazing veggie roasted flatbread, mac n’ cheese, and pesto burrata – just to name a few of their most popular menu options.
Mama Rosa’s Trattoria At Robert Renzoni Vineyards
If you weren’t already blown away by classic Bordeaux and Italian grape varietals during your tasting at Robert Renzoni’s Vineyards, prepare yourself to be dazzled by Mama Rosa’s Trattoria! Lot’s of Temecula Winery Restaurants serve Italian food, but Mama Rosa’s is the only place where you’ll find a brick oven! The hand tossed pizza here will hit different. If you’re not in the mood for pizza, I suggest trying the tortellini or the stuffed braised short ribs.
Baba Joon’s Kitchen At Fazeli Cellars
In Baba Joon’s Kitchen, traditional Parisian dishes are served up with a twist of contemporary California. You’ll be blown away by this truly unique dining experience. The menu was curated by Executive Chef Anthony Bartolotta, who adapted the recipes and expanded upon the Fazeli family’s vision. You’ll see incorporating elements of Italian, French, Spanish and Greek cuisine throughout the menu.
Cave Cafe At Oak Mountain Winery
If you’re coming to Temecula Valley, you need to check out Southern California’s first wine cave! It’s not just the perfect place to store wines, though! The cave also serves up a great ambiance and delicious, simple menu offerings to its guests. Grab a glass, pick and entree, and see for yourself why Oak Mountain Winery has only continued to grow in popularity in recent years!
