Romantic Getaway at Ponte Vineyard Inn in Temecula

We stayed as a guest of Ponte

When was the last time you had a romantic weekend away without the children? For my husband and I, it has been since the birth of my third child who is now eight years old. With both my husband and I working long hours and the kids keeping us busy, we have found it harder and harder to find time to focus on our marriage. So, we sent the kids to the Grandparent’s house for the weekend and escaped to Temecula for a romantic weekend at the Ponte Vineyard Inn.

The moment that we took our first steps into the picturesque vineyard and breathed in the fresh country air, a sense of tranquility came over us. The resort is nestled in-between miles of grape vines giving us a secluded feel in the heart of wine country. We sipped on a champagne flute filled with chilled bubbling Moscato while checking into the resort. After checking in, we were guided to our intimate room that was plush, bright, and cheerful with luxurious amenities.

Once we were settled into the peaceful atmosphere, we stepped out into the sunshine for a romantic horse and carriage ride through the countryside. Our romance rekindled while taking in the undulating landscape while riding through the countryside. The driver stopped in the middle of the rustic ambiance for us to savor a Caprese sandwich in front of the scenic views. It was a romantic outdoor experience unlike any other.

The ride ended at Ponte Winery where we tasted the fine wines made at Ponte Vineyard. We sipped and savored the sweet flavors of the wine inside of the rustic and charming tasting room. During our tasting, we became wine club members so that we can continue to remember our time at Ponte with regular shipments of our favorite Ponte wines.
