A lot of things have been said about love: Love makes you happy, love makes you crazy. Love is blind, love is grand, love is an open door. Love hurts, love stinks, love is patient. Love makes the world go ‘round, love means never having to say you’re sorry, according to Ali MacGraw in Love Story.
Whatever it is to you, love is definitely a big deal. So much so that we devote an entire day to it. People have strong feelings about Valentine’s Day. They, well, love it or hate it. Me? How can I hate a day in which my preschool-aged son brings me hand-made valentines, and my dear one brings me flowers? In turn, I usually treat them to their favorite foods for dinner. And chocolate for dessert. Always chocolate.
There are so many ways to celebrate on February 14th. Among the most popular are the obvious: dinner out, dancing, chocolates, jewelry and flowers. Try thinking outside of the box this year; how does a day at a winery sound? A day in wine country involves so many beautiful things like serenity, a beautiful landscape and atmosphere, wine tasting, a walk in the vineyard, a gorgeous lunch. Whether it’s a day trip for two or for a group of friends who love each other, Valentine’s Day is perfect at Ponte Winery.
Getting out of work for the day may not be possible since the holiday falls on a Tuesday, so consider picking up a bottle or two of your darling’s favorite wine. Will it be a Beverino Gift Pack or a seasonal wine flight like our With Love Wine Duo? Check out all of our Valentine’s Day gift ideas here.
If the classic dinner out is more your style, we are pleased to announce that The Restaurant will be open for extended hours on Valentine’s Day and will feature a special menu. Make your reservations between 5 and 8 pm by clicking here. You can also view our menu here.
For those who pull out all the stops for the holiday, the Vineyard Romance Package is for you. Your stay at Ponte Vineyard Inn includes sparkling wine upon arrival, a bottle of wine and six chocolate-covered strawberries waiting in your room or suite, a $50 Ponte gift card, and wine tasting tickets for the two of you at Ponte Winery. Book your room here.
Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is here to stay, so might as well embrace it.
