“A boutique family run vineyard & winery”
Rancho Ponte is a small-production, family-run winery nestled on 20 acres and located just 5 miles east of Fredericksburg. The Texas Pontes continue a five generation legacy of winemaking which started in northern Italy. We moved here from California, bringing many years of experience in the wine industry to our new venture in the Texas Hill country. Our wines have earned a passionate word-of-mouth following. Rancho Ponte is known for its beautiful tasting room and friendly atmosphere.
The Traveling Winers on Texas Wine Trail
Rancho Ponte Vineyards, set among the various wineries on Wine Road 290, is a newer establishment. This year the vines are only 2 years old, hence they pull grapes from all over, even California. Rachel and Roberto Ponte are the owners. Rachel is a chef (yummm!) and Roberto comes from a long family history of wine makers, being a 5th generation vintner. Their flagship wine was the Sorrelline, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Riesling and Viognier. One of the hosts, Tres, made us laugh with his response to our question “How many cases per year do you produce?” He laughed and said “We make less wine than some of the larger wineries spill!” A bit of a commercial feel in the tasting room, selling many different items. Overall, it is absolutely worth a stop on your wine trail.
