This year, why not treat all the dads and father figures in your life to a day of wine tasting in Temecula? Ponte Winery just might be the perfect one-stop-shopping spot when it comes to hooking pops up! Read on for tips on how you can make this holiday picture-perfect, the Ponte way.
Taste, Rest, and Indulge
Kick things off and let our knowledgeable Tasting Room staff pour you a flight of our proprietary blends, Classic, Sparkling, and Fortified Ponte wines. Whether you’re new to wine or a seasoned connoisseur, we think you’ll enjoy your tasting experience at Ponte Winery. Our friendly Wine Servers are excited to introduce you to the wines we craft and make suggestions suited to your taste.
While at the winery, we encourage you to take a tour and see first-hand how Ponte wines are made. Get a behind-the-scenes look at a working winery, and taste straight out of a cask or wine barrel in our authentic Barrel Room. With our open-beamed ceilings and large tasting counters, Ponte is the perfect place for a Father’s Day trip.
After a relaxing day of tasting our small-batch Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Tempranillo, and more, you could treat dad to an unforgettable wine country getaway at our stunning Temecula hotel, The Ponte Vineyard Inn. Our 90-room boutique facility offers elegant interiors, fine amenities, and a relaxing ambiance—just what all the hard-working dads deserve on their special day.
Cap off the day with a meal at The Restaurant at Ponte, and enjoy our seasonal and locally sourced dishes in our beautiful garden setting. From salmon cakes, calamari, steaks, and pasta to cakes, soufflés, and sorbet, our staff are at-the-ready to prepare and serve a memorable meal.
The Gift that Keeps on Giving
Take the Ponte magic home after your visit by giving the gift of a Ponte Winery Wine Club membership. As a member, dad can enjoy special discounts year-round on wine, merchandise, exclusive event tickets, stays at our award-winning Ponte Vineyard Inn, and dining at our Restaurant at Ponte. Here are three Ponte Wines that could make excellent Father’s Day gifts this year:
A sweet red Ponte classic, Beverino means “easy to drink” in Italian. This wine’s subtle sweetness comes from a careful blend of several varieties (our little secret). Experience a soft and round mouthfeel with low acid and low tannin. This particular year’s blend has delicious notes of cherry compote, ripe blueberries, and warm spices.
This sweet, fortified wine is the perfect ending to a good meal and a pleasant evening. Ponte’s smooth non-vintage Port is a rich blend of Zinfandel grapes and brandy. Rich and velvety, Port NV has notes of fig, toasted caramel, and cacao. Can be aged an additional 15 years.
Chardonnay is a white grape from Burgundy France and is the world’s most popular white variety. Chardonnay can be expressed in a wide variety of styles. The Chardonnay 2021 is light, refreshing, and perfect for summer. This wine has notes of luscious ripe peach mid-palate, a citrus entry, and a beautiful pineapple finish.
