Temecula Valley, CA (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
Temecula Valley wine country is the most popular Southern California destination for wine lovers seeking an escape from the city. With 34 wineries to see, plenty of fresh air, vineyard views, and fabulous food and wine, a single day is not enough. The opening of the new Ponte Vineyard Inn provides the perfect option for longer-term visits.
Surrounded by over 300 acres of vineyard, Ponte Vineyard Inn is a four-diamond, mission-style boutique hotel located next to Ponte Winery and within walking distance to several neighboring wineries. Each of the Inn’s 60 finely-appointed rooms offer vineyard views from a private patio or balcony, and include complimentary Wi-Fi access, flat screen HDTV and other upscale amenities. Two spectacular Grand Suites boast 1,360 square-feet of space, including a fireplace, living room, dining room, fully-stocked wine and beverage refrigerator, butler’s pantry, master bath and built-in closet. For travelers who wish to bring the family dog, Ponte Vineyard Inn offers designated pet-friendly rooms complete with pet bedding, welcome treats, and drinking and feeding bowls.
Ponte Vineyard Inn will also bring additional dining options to wine country, with Bouquet Restaurant, serving dinner daily and lunch on weekends, as well as The Cellar Lounge, which will feature a full bar, extensive wine list, and late-night dining and cocktails. Overnight guests can enjoy a gourmet continental breakfast daily, as well as weekend brunch or lunch at The Restaurant at Ponte, recognized as a top 50 restaurant for outdoor dining by OpenTable.
In keeping with Ponte Family Estate’s long-standing commitment to sustainability, Ponte Vineyard Inn includes many green features designed to reduce the property's environmental footprint, such as LED lighting, use of recycled and natural materials, and green waste from the kitchen composted back to the vineyard. Between the Inn and vineyards lies a 1/4-acre pond, which will serve as a reservoir for rainwater run-off from the hotel roof and be used to irrigate the gardens and vineyard.
