Fodor's Expert Review Ponte Vineyard Inn

35001 Rancho California Rd., Temecula, California, 92591, USA

Slow down in old Californio Rancho style at this hotel on the grounds of the Ponte Family Estate winery. Everything is big here: the Mission-style furnishings in large lobbies and public areas, the expansive guest rooms, even the double-wide corridors. All rooms have outdoor areas where you can sit, sip a glass of wine, and take in the vineyard and mountain views. Weddings take place on a regular basis in the colorful gardens here. Dining options include the courtyard Bouquet restaurant and the pub-like Cellar Lounge, which serves small-plate meals along with cocktails and craft brews. By 2018 the inn should have an additional 30 rooms in a separate wing.
