Admit it: Christmas shopping is exhausting. Thrilling at first, sure, but once you’ve:
- Found a coveted parking space
- Battled crowds
- Dodged overflowing holiday displays
- Gone to plan C and D because you could not find little Susie her A and B toy choices
- Waited in horrendous lines
- And stood horrified at the total flashing at the cashier register,
you are d-o-n-e.
You deserve a break. The wrapping can wait just a little longer; instead, take a deep breath, call a friend and head over to The Cellar Lounge at Ponte Vineyard Inn. Located below the boutique hotel in the cellar, this watering hole feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle going on in the world above. Inspired by a 1920’s speakeasy, The Cellar Lounge has a full bar (the only one in Temecula Wine Country) with top-shelf liquors and spirits, an impressive beer list, and a complete cellar of all of Ponte Winery’s wines, plus a selection of other locally produced wines. Our master mixologist and sommelier concocts new, seasonal cocktails as well as tried and true classics. It is the ideal place to relax and let the day fade away. Guests with an appetite will find a small, but delicious menu of local, seasonal ingredients. There is also live music on Friday and Saturday evenings.
And don’t worry – you know that moment when you’re Christmas shopping is finally done and you realize you forgot something? Well, a winery is the place you want to be. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like an excellent bottle of wine or gift card to the Winery or Inn.
A trip to the Cellar Lounge – it’s the ultimate way to end your crazy day.
