Many come from all over the world to experience Temecula Valley Wine Country. Over the years, word has spread like wildfire regarding our little gem, and from those words, Ponte Vineyard Inn and Winery has grown to amass a following and popularity that many try to emulate. Those who have yet to visit are left pondering, “What is all the buzz about?”

While Ponte Winery not only creates some of the best wines in the Valley, we also promote a “stay in the country” that allows for the full experience Temecula has to offer. For those who endeavor to discover more during their stay, they will soon come to find that the possibilities are endless and that there is no place more relaxing and welcoming to escape to than Ponte.

By choosing to stay at our lovely sixty-room, boutique-style Inn, you are already making the choice to create the best experience possible. If you are the type to wake up with the sunrise, you will be pleasantly surprised to discover the majestic scenery that can be found with the rise of morning fog and the floating of hot air balloons over the vineyards.

Enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee provided by your in-room Keurig coffee maker while you take in the sights on your patio or balcony, before descending to our Bouquet Restaurant, where breakfast can be enjoyed every day.

In the mood for a morning Mimosa or perhaps a Bloody Mary? Enjoy these delicious beverages along with Blackberry Banana Pancakes or Smoked Salmon Carpaccio in our fabulous courtyard that overlooks breathtaking views of our vineyards and Rainbow Mountains.

Perhaps you prefer a little exercise to wake up your sleepy mind? Our Fitness Center is available at all times for your use.

The options for entertainment in Temecula are endless and if wine tasting was your goal, than look no farther, as Temecula Valley is home to over 42 family wineries. Not only does Ponte offer some of the most delicious wines ever created, we are also expertly located within walking distance of two other fabulous wineries, South Coast Winery and Wiens Family Cellars, while also being a short drive from other great names. If you are not interested in discovering Wine Country on your own, there are numerous companies available with various modes of transportation that would love to give you a guided tour of multiple wineries.

Or maybe you were thinking of seeing the sights that Temecula has to offer? We highly recommend Old Town Temecula. This quaint and historic mile can be found on Front Street, which is filled with mom-and-pop shops ranging from antique stores, artesian crafts, pubs and dance halls, to gourmet restaurants and the local theater. A short distance from there you can find the ever-expanding Promenade Mall and Cinema, with even more restaurants and sports bars to enjoy.

The beauty of our establishment truly comes to life when night reaches the valley. Our full service bar and appetizer style restaurant, The Cellar Lounge, stays open late for those looking for something a little stronger than the local wines and offers live music Friday and Saturday nights.

If you are feeling like a more intimate atmosphere for dinner, we once again recommend our Bouquet Restaurant where guests can dine indoors among our fabulous fireplace or outdoors among the sounds of wildlife in our romantically lit courtyard.

Stop by our Sundry store to purchase a bottle of wine before heading out to our fire-pits, located by our pond, to end the night with relaxation before retiring to your large and modern room, filled with environmentally-friendly amenities and comfortable European king or queen style beds.

After hearing the all the great attributes Temecula has to offer, what are you waiting for? Bliss and relaxation are waiting for you at Ponte Vineyard Inn and Winery. We cannot wait to show you in person all of the reasons why we love Temecula and our little home away home here at Ponte. Still not convinced? Find out for yourself, because after all, there has to be a reason behind all the buzz, right?
