No, it’s not too early to talk about this. If stores can display their candy hearts and headline their pink and red greeting cards the day after Christmas, it’s perfectly acceptable for us to remind you today that Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it. It’s best to plan early on this one, especially since the holiday falls on a weekend this year.

Wineries have long been one of the top destinations for couples on February 14th. Lovebirds adore sipping good wine in a romantic setting, that’s no secret. But, at Ponte, the magic just begins with wine tasting. Why not surprise your dear one with an entire weekend in wine country? We have everything you need for the best Valentine’s Day ever.

For starters, book our ever-popular Vineyard Romance package. During your stay, you will receive six house-made chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of red, white, sparkling or non-alcoholic wine. Additionally, a $50 Ponte Family Estate gift card that you may redeem in any of our restaurants or gift shops, and wine tasting tickets to Ponte Winery are also included. For an extra fee, you can arrange to add flowers to your room, book a horse-drawn carriage ride through the vineyards or reserve a couple’s massage.

Our chefs at Bouquet Restaurant and The Restaurant at Ponte have planned special, decadent meals just for Valentine’s Day, as well. Seasonal and local ingredients will be expertly crafted into delicious dishes that will pair beautifully with one of Ponte’s signature wines. End your evenings at The Cellar Lounge where you can sip your favorite cocktail (or try a new one!) and groove to live music.

Make this year’s Valentine’s Day the best one yet!
