Departures.com, one of the web’s leading sites on luxury travel, shopping, arts and culture, has selected Ponte Vineyard Inn, located in Temecula Valley California, as one of their World’s Ten Best Wine Resorts.
Listed alongside luxury hotels located in world-class wine regions such as Tuscany, Italy; Rioja, Spain and Evora, Portugal, this honor establishes Ponte Vineyard Inn as one of the premiere destinations for wine and travel enthusiasts alike.
Ponte Vineyard Inn, opened in May 2012 and recently AAA Four-Diamond certified, is Ponte Winery’s upscale, mission-style, boutique hotel which boasts vineyard views from each of its 60 rooms — from the spacious king rooms to the truly spectacular 1,360 square-feet Grand Suites.
Every room is well-appointed with signature bath amenities, flat screen HDTVs, luxuriously comfortable beds and much more.
Located within walking distance to the winery, tasting room, barrel room and marketplace, Ponte Vineyard Inn gives visitors the complete, wine country experience. Guests can enjoy a variety of local, regional and international wines at The Cellar Lounge paired with upscale, gastropub fare; for breakfast and dinner the hotel’s full-service restaurant, Bouquet, has outdoor seating where diners can feast on both the gourmet food and breathtaking views.
Managing Partner Claudio Ponte said, “We’re honored to be named one of Departure.com’s Best Wine Resorts and feel a great deal of pride and accomplishment having made Ponte Vineyard Inn the kind of destination deserving of this recognition.”
