When it comes to getting married at Ponte, brides know they have choices: choices on the ceremony location, reception area, menu options, etc. The opening of the eco-friendly, 60-room Ponte Vineyard Inn brought even more choices! In the vast courtyard of the new mission-style hotel is a new picture-perfect space to say your vows.
The Pond serves as the backdrop, complete with serene water fountains trickling softly, along with sweeping vineyard views and mountains in the far distance.

After your ceremony, your cocktail reception takes place just a few steps away on the brick patio of Bouquet Restaurant, and your reception is held right next door at Ponte Winery. If your party is small, however, the new Doppietta Room at the Inn is a lovely and intimate location for your wedding banquet.
One of the most exciting features at the Ponte Vineyard Inn is the late closing time at the Cellar Lounge where you can keep the party going even after your reception has ended. Located literally underground at the Inn, no one will go thirsty with the stellar selection of signature cocktails, microbrews and top shelf liquors. Hopefully, you’ve booked a room or suite at the hotel, in which case you can just mosey upstairs when you’re tired or when last call is announced, whichever comes first.
The next morning, host your farewell wedding brunch at Bouquet Restaurant where dishes such as Banana Buttermilk Pancakes and Smoked Salmon Carpaccio await your guests along with organic coffee, mimosas and fresh juices.
Since opening in May of this year, the Ponte Vineyard Inn has been named a AAA 4-Diamond Resort, one of the world’s top 10 wine resorts according to departures.com, and has been voted the #1 Temecula hotel on Trip Advisor. It is the perfect location for your dream California wine country wedding.
