On your first visit to Ponte Winery, you might have ventured only as far as the tasting room. On your next visit, come tour with me and really discover Ponte Winery.
To tour at Ponte is simple: just visit our cashier and say you would like to go on the winery tour. We meet on the front porch and bring your glass because this is a tasting tour! I will greet you with bottle in hand and pour you your first tasting. You will learn a little Ponte history and our philosophy about wine. Next, I will introduce you to our award winning Restaurant at Ponte before inviting you to visit and stay at our Ponte Vineyard Inn – home to the Cellar Lounge, the only full bar in the Temecula Wine Country.
Stay for lunch!
At this point, we will stroll to the back of the winery and explore the oldest grapevines on property and discuss grape growing here in the Temecula Valley. This is the perfect spot to stop and admire the beauty of our wedding site where we may even catch a glimpse of the love-struck bride and groom. We also venture into the tank yard where you will learn about our winemaking process and taste some young, not-quite-ready-for-the-bottle wine directly from the tank. Next door in the Barrel Room is where we will conclude our tour, where we will not only talk about oak barrels and aging wine but steal a sample of perfection directly from an oak barrel.
In the tank yard
Winery tours are about 45 minutes long and are offered every Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 and 3:00 with no appointment necessary. They are only $5.00 per person but if you are a Wine Club Member, it is free for you and your guests. You can also tour Monday through Friday for $10, by appointment only. We really hope to see you soon!
