Sweets to the Sweet

You’ve been warned – Valentine’s Day is coming practically here.  Despite all of the in-your-face marketing (from the supermarket, the commercials, even – gasp – us!)  you still haven’t bought a gift, right?  We won’t tell, in fact, we can help.  Flowers and chocolate are nice if not a bit cliché, but why not try something different; something you both can share?  We have some fantastic wine flights and gift boxes that are perfect for giving to your sweetheart.

Our new Late Harvest Tasting Flight will allow you and your dear one to taste and compare our past vintages of the popular Late Harvest wine.  This is ideal if you are a sweet wine lover.  The grapes used to make Late Harvest are picked later in harvest season, giving the fruit extra time to develop their sugar content.  What results is a stunningly unique red wine with flavor notes ranging from berries to cinnamon to vanilla.  The Late Harvest Tasting Flight includes one bottle each of our 2009, 2012 and NV  vintages.  Sip them with something decadently sweet – chocolate is best – or with tangy cheese appetizers.  Purchase here.

Ponte’s Sparkling Trio is a great way to sample all of our sparkling wines – a red, a white and a rose!  Our best-selling Moscato is lightly sweet with flavors of nectarine and apricots and is fabulous as an aperitif.  This is the sparkler we serve at special events and at all of Ponte’s weddings; a tried and true favorite.  Next is our pink-hued Rose Spumante that is the perfect balance of brightness, sweetness and bubbles.   With an aroma of crisp green apples and flavors of strawberry and pineapple, what’s not to like?  Finally, the Sparkling Trio is completed with Vernaccia Nera, our exclusive red sparkling wine.  Beneath its vanilla aromas lie flavors of cassis, blueberry and blackberry.  It is wonderful with most Italian foods, as well as olives and cheeses.  Purchase here.

And finally, if chocolate is a must-have, consider our Beverino & Chocolate Gift Box.  Included is Ponte’s best-selling, softly sweet Beverino wine, a jar of Chocolate with Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce, a tin of Ponte Dark Chocolate Drops, a package of Torn Ranch Chocolates and a bar of gourmet Eclipse Chocolat – all presented in a beautifully rustic, signature wooden gift box tied with a bow.  Sweet indeed.  Purchase here.

You can purchase each of these wine flights and gift boxes in our online store; we even have rush shipping available.  You may also stop by our Marketplace every day from 10 am to 5 pm.

There are still seats available to our Valentine’s Day Dinner!  Treat your Valentine to sparkling wine upon arrival, a four-course wine-paired dinner, and live music and dancing.  Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.

Stay with us at Ponte Vineyard Inn during the month of February and enjoy our Vineyard Romance Package which includes chocolate-covered strawberries, a bottle of sparkling wine and a $50 Ponte gift card.  Book your room or suite here.
