Happy weekend SMP California! And you know what makes it even happier? The fact that we get to spend it getting to know the fabulous folks at Ponte Winery and Ponte Vineyard Inn. That is if you don’t know them already. So fill up your wine glass and join me in toasting this fabulous little spot!
Both of my siblings got married at a winery. So it’s safe to say, wineries hold a special place in my heart. SO many of my favorite SMP weddings were hosted amongst the vines, so when I stumble on a beautiful spot like Ponte Winery and Ponte Vineyard, I know it’s time to shout it from the rooftops. If you are looking for the perfect winery to host your I dos – look no further my loves!
About Ponte Winery and Ponte Vineyard Inn… Ponte Winery is located in the heart of Temecula Wine County and offers excellent customer service, attention to detail, gourmet dining options and 300 beautiful acres of vineyards all within a day’s drive of major cities in Southern California. Our Winery has been hosting guests and brides with unparalleled service since we opened our doors 10 years ago, and has been sharing the wine we create right here from our expansive vineyards.
In 2012 we opened our hotel, Ponte Vineyard Inn. Ponte Vineyard Inn is a 4-diamond boutique hotel offering expansive vineyard views, luxury accommodations and a quiet escape to the country. Last year the hotel was named by American Express’ Departures magazine as a Top 10 Vineyard Hotel in the world and we have the honor of being the #1 hotel in Temecula from Trip Advisor.
Ponte Winery and Inn has several dining options, The Restaurant at Ponte offers casual outdoor dining with delicious wine country salads, grape wood fired pizzas, pastas and sandwiches while Bouquet Restaurant at Ponte Vineyard Inn offers an upscale gourmet dining experience with indoor or outdoor seating. Ponte Vineyard Inn also offers The Cellar Lounge, the only full bar in wine country. The Cellar Lounge offers craft cocktails, beers on tap, gourmet gastropub fare and wine of course!
We also offer several options for ceremony and reception locations. There are two vineyard-facing ceremony spots on property, one at the winery and one at the inn. Reception locations include our Vineyard Pavilion which can seat up to 300 and our barrel room with walls covered with wine barrels aging our wines. The architecture and beauty of the property lends itself well to brides who want to use a variety of photo locations on-site. We also offer a complimentary room at the inn to our wedding couples and a hotel room or bridal cottage for brides and grooms to use on the big day for getting ready, taking photos, etc.
We are giving away a one night stay at Ponte Vineyard Inn with tasting tickets to our Tasting Room and dinner at one of our restaurants. It’s a perfect pre-wedding getaway for a couple! Just leave a comment below letting us know why you could use a getaway! The Winner will be selected at random and announced on October 4th. Good luck!
