Mother’s Day Brunch at Ponte

For the 5th year in a row, Ponte Winery will host their ever-popular Mother’s Day Brunch, an event open to the entire family in celebration of Mom. This years event will be held in the newly-modified Vineyard Pavilion which has been updated with atrium windows that offer breathtaking views of Ponte’s vineyards. The special time spent with mom in a relaxing environment is always the star attraction at the Mother’s Day Brunch, but the wine-country inspired cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Steve Stawinski is never far behind. In addition to the menu below, adults will enjoy Ponte wines, raspberry mimosas and peach bellinis.
