If it doesn’t, you’re probably in the wrong hotel.
But it’s summer. You’re thirsty. And more in the mood for the kind of hotel room with a 300-acre vineyard...
Introducing Ponte Vineyard Inn, a new boutique hotel dropped right into the middle of a big vineyard, now open in Temecula.
Think of this like your new little wine-country villa—it’s a rustic spread of gardens, courtyards and just 60 rooms, and it takes a couple hours to get out to these parts, so discretion is assured. Which is pretty important when you’re with a date, a bed and 300 acres of grapes.
You’ll have a balcony. It’ll have a view. You’ll submit to afternoons of leisurely wine tasting on the property... and at the 33 other vineyards nearby. And evenings of... trying out all those little soaps.
And if come nightfall you’re actually a little sick of the wine—hey, we’re just covering all the bases here—you’ll want to wind your way down to the Cellar Lounge, a literally underground spot beneath the lobby that’s got a marble counter, Moroccan lamb sliders and the only full bar in the area.
Wine country is all about the martinis, really.
