Ponte Winery

The Ponte Winery is located on a 300 acre vineyard in the heart of wine country.  Conceived and built by the Ponte family - grape growers in Temecula since 1984 - the winery welcomes visitors with a large tasting room, a four-diamond luxury hotel, a full-service bar and two award winning restaurants.  The Ponte Winery features ample parking and world class banquet and event venues.  Beautifically manicured gardens and strolling paths provide guests a relaxing day in the country.  The Pontes believe that "If you like it, it's good wine."  Most of the 40-year old vines on the property produce Cabernet, Zinfandel and Merlot.  However, the family also farms Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Muscat, Pinot Grigio, Vermentino, Arneis, Nero d'Avola, Montepulciano and other Italian varieties.  

Ponte Winery offers a charming and sophisticated atmosphere.  It is the perfect setting to host a private party or wedding, attend one of the many special events hosted by the winery throughout the year, or simply enjoy the beautiful vineyards and views with a glass of wine.

Guests are welcome to wander the gardens, taste a large variety of red, white and sweet wine and take in the breathtaking views.  Every detail of the property is designed to enhance guests' experience, from the open-beam ceilings in the tasting room to the mission-style building that serves as the barrel room.  Ponte's tasting room is home to unique specialty food and gift items, perfect to take home as a special memento of your visit to wine country.  The day would not be complete without lunching at the Restaurant at Ponte, dining at Bouquet Restaurant, or why not stay overnight at four-diamond Ponte Vineyard Inn?  Executive Chef Christy Moore oversees the cuisine at both restaurants and the Cellar Lounge, wine country's only full-service cocktail lounge.
