Ponte Family Estate 8th Annual Grape Stomp Festival
They say the best wine comes from the stomping feet of its drinkers...well, we just made that up, but if that were the case, then that would mean Ponte Family Estates would carry not only the finest wines, but the best drinkers, too! At the 8th Annual Grape Stomp Festival, Ponte fans were in full force as dozens of teams rolled up their sleeves and jumped feet-first into barrels full of grapes for the night's main event, the grape stomping competition. How did The Temecula Insider team fare in the contest? Let's just say we've had better days...
Inside the 310-acre property's brand new Vineyard Pavilion, guests danced, mingled and enjoyed Ponte's delicious variety of wines, along with appetizers and a gourmet dinner cooked up by executive chef Greg Stillman and his talented team. Live music by The Mike and Brian Duo (www.briandstodart.com) complemented the ambiance and after the sun went down, guests socialized in the outdoor open-air garden, taking advantage of the cool breeze and gorgeous pink sunset view with horse and carriage rides through the vineyard.
Ponte Family Estates offers a complete "Day in the Country" experience, adding quality wine, beautiful grounds and exceptional service to the already breathtaking views of Temecula Wine Country. Insider Tip: Take advantage of the weekday discounts (6 tastes for $10) to beat the busy weekend crowds and get a more intimate winetasting experience.
