Sip Sustainably: Ponte Winery Tour & Tasting

October 27, 2017
12:00pm – 2:30pm

Since purchasing the land in 1984, Ponte has been mindful of their farming practices and water use. As their business grew, so did their focus on achieving environmental sustainability in every area of the company, from vineyards and winemaking facilities, to kitchens and offices.

In 2011, Ponte became the first winery in Temecula to achieve the Certified California Sustainable Winegrowers (CCSW) designation and continue efforts to meet the ever-expanding CCSW requirements.

Join AWWEE’s Orange County/Inland Empire Regional Leadership Team as we embark on the winery’s Vineyard Estate Tour – modified with a focus on sustainability for our group.  Guests will enjoy an electric bus tour of the 310 acre ranch for a truly unique tasting experience of their signature wines among the vineyards from which they are grown.  We will hear about the winery’s best practices and efforts undertaken that keep the environment at the forefront of Ponte’s proprieties. The tour will conclude with a winemaking facilities visit to learn more about the art and science of wine making, including a taste of young wine strait from a tank or cask!

Optional no-host lunch at the winery’s restaurant before the tour

Registration covers tour and tasting from 1:30pm – 2:30pm
