Ponte Vineyard Inn: A Fabulously Intimate Wedding Venue


We recently had the opportunity to visit the Ponte Vineyard Inn.  It is the Temecula valley’s latest gem hidden in rows of grape vines.  An absolutely fabulous location for weddings,  they simultaneously hosted two weddings while we visited the property.

Wedding ceremonies can be held in two breathtaking locations.  Both overlooking a sea of grape vines.  Our favorite spot  was under a gazebo overlooking a pond and a skyline of mountains and vineyards.  In the background is the mission like beautiful Spanish structure of the Inn itself overlooking water fountains.  It’s a spectacular image at sunset. image

Although there were two weddings on a Friday evening, you wouldn’t know it.  The grounds of the Ponte Vineyard Inn are expansive, yet with only 40 rooms at the Inn it is quite intimate and makes for a relaxing sanctuary.  In the summer time the warm weather makes it perfect to enjoy the sceneries and outdoors all through the night.
