"There are no standards of taste in wine... Each man's own taste is the standard, and a majority vote cannot decide for him or in any slightest degree affect the supremacy of his own standard." - Mark Twain
We agree! We are a boutique producer. Our wines are made in very small quantities, typically 1,500 cases per year for each variety. Compared with other California giants we are tiny, but this allows us to concentrate on quality, not quantity.
The Classic Line
Traditionally, sweet wines were considered the best wines. However, in the past 30 years, wine snobs have tried to make us feel bad for drinking sweeter wines. At Ponte, our motto is "if you like it, it's good wine" and we don't listen to what other people say we should or shouldn't like. Our sweet wines are made carefully from our best fruit and priced comparably to our more "serious" wines. Next time you are at the winery, try our Beverino and Late Harvest - they are worth it.
