Ponte Winery Inn & Restaurant: If you live in Southern California, and haven’t been to Temecula, you are truly missing out! Weekend getaways to Temecula are quickly becoming a favorite pastime of ours, and we have found the perfect place to stay. This 60 room boutique hotel is just as visually stunning on the inside as it is on the outside, with elegant features and posh decor. Not to mention the views of the surrounding vineyards are absolutely breathtaking! They are also home to some of our favorite restaurants in Temecula, so you really can’t go wrong! Bouquet is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and has both indoor and outdoor dining. We strongly recommend sitting outside in the courtyard… it’s heavenly! The Restaurant at Ponte is outdoors in the middle of gardens and vineyards, that are lit by twinkle lights each evening. It’s one of the most romantic (and delicious) restaurants we have ever experienced!
