A Sample Itinerary for Your Getaway at The Ponte Vineyard Inn

May 3, 2012 No comments » [ssba]

We are just days away from opening the doors at Ponte Vineyard Inn, a 60-room boutique hotel in the heart of wine country, and a hop, skip and jump away from Ponte Winery.  Between our Wine Club newsletters, The Inn blog, emails and tweets, we’re sure you’ve heard about the amazing features we have in store for our guests.  If not, check out all the details here.

We know lots of you have visited Temecula wine country and Ponte for the day, and might be wondering what could keep you busy here for, say, a weekend.  More than you think!  We think this sample itinerary will help give you an idea:

Sample itinerary

Day 1

Check in – Check in to your room at the newly opened Ponte Vineyard Inn and unwind on your private balcony overlooking the vineyards.  If you’ve booked a Romantic Getaway Package, enjoy your artisan cheese tray and bottle of Rose Spumante.

5:00 pm – Mosey down to The Cellar Lounge and enjoy a top-shelf martini or your favorite drink before dinner.

6:00 pm – Take a short stroll over the The Restaurant at Ponte for a fresh, seasonal dinner alfresco, masterfully paired with Ponte wine.

8:00 pm – Relax by The Pond, a 1-acre, wind-powered body of water directly behind The Inn.

8:30 pm – Head back to your room or suite where you can enjoy a bottle of wine, enjoy in-room coffee or tea service, watch a movie on your HDTV flat screen, or turn in on your pillow topped mattress.

Day 2

Morning – Wake and enjoy a breakfast basket and coffee in the privacy of your room or private balcony.  Or, visit Bouquet Restaurant for continental breakfast during the week and sit-down breakfast on the weekend.

10:00 am – Start the day with a round of golf at a local course at a discounted rate.  If you prefer to stay indoors, book a luxurious facial or body treatment next door at The Grapeseed Spa.

1:00 pm – Refuel with a wine-paired lunch at The Restaurant at Ponte or Bouquet.

2:00 pm – It’s wine tasting time!  Hit up three wineries, all within walking distance: Ponte Winery (where you can also take a winery tour), Wiens Family Cellars and Southcoast Winery.  If you prefer to also visit other tasting rooms in the Valley our front desk can arrange a bus tour of multiple stops.

5:00 pm – Freshen up in your room or suite with complimentary bath amenities.

6:30 pm – Enjoy dinner at The Cellar Lounge, Bouquet or The Restaurant at Ponte.

8:00 pm – Drive a short distance to Old Town Temecula for strolling, shopping, dessert, or dancing on this charming, historical street.

9:30 pm – Relax with a nightcap at The Cellar Lounge before calling it a night.

Day 3

Morning – Head out to your pre-booked sunrise hot air balloon ride over the valley of Temecula.  A truly breathtaking experience that includes breakfast.

Late morning – You can’t leave Temecula without checking out the incredible gift, home decor and gourmet food items in Ponte Winery’s Marketplace.  Don’t forget to pick up a bottle or two of your favorite wine!

Afternoon – Enjoy lunch at The Restaurant at Ponte or Bouquet before heading home.
