Rancho Ponte is in our 'top two' of all the wineries we visited in this area. The wine was great (not overly sweet like many wineries) and the service was excellent. We purchased several bottles; and unlike many -- although we 'shared' a tasting to keep from over-indulging -- the tasting pours were generous. We highly recommend placing Rancho Ponte... More

This was last winery we stopped by so were not overly impressed. They were not busy, maybe because they are located just off the main Hwy. 290 drag where all the other wineries are. The lady that waited on us advised we needed to purchase tasting to try the chili that was part of an event that day. She was... More

We tried 4 wineries this day and this was our first one. The wine is ok, too sweet for us, if you like sweet wine this might be the one for you. They were very friendly but not too informative, it was just ok, not our favorite. If you decide to try this winery, try the peach sangria, that along... More

Very nice Texas winery, they have an excellent tasting room and are not pushy, but they are very friendly and will engage you about the wines and tell their story very well. An enjoyable stop on the wine trail

My husband and I went to tastings at 4 wineries yesterday, and this was our favorite stop. We enjoyed all of what we tasted, and our service was fantastic. Good wine and good conversation! We are so glad our driver for the afternoon mentioned it to us, or we wouldn't have known to make it one of our stops.

We enjoyed the tasting, except for the dis-interested server. He did not have much to say, and kept accessing the computer or his hand held devise. Another staff member came in from outside, and chatted with guy #1 for a few minutes about things business related. Guy #2 then turned to us and engaged us in a wonderful conversation regarding...

We visited this winery on a Saturday. A bus was there and the tasting room was full but we had excellent service and our server was knowledgable about their wines. Tasting fee was $12 per person with wine glass included that's yours to keep. I think we tasted six wines each for that price. Not much of a view at... More

My wife and I stopped in and enjoy all the wines at Rancho Ponte. Typically the dry reds are our preference but we totally enjoyed their whites as well. We thought the prices per bottle <$25 we more than reasonable. Staff were friendly and educated. Join wine clue next day after tasting everyone else's. Cannot wait to go back again.

Love this place. Been here a couple times, good wines & nice people! Owner is interesting to talk to. I haven't seen the bad service others had mentioned...must have been an off day with a bad employee. I'll go back, especially when they have music & bbq.

I stopped at this winery on my way to Fredericksburg and really enjoyed the tasting they offered. I came with a list of wines I wished to taste and was able to try all but one which was sold out. The lady who helped me suggested an additional one, the Orange Muscat, which was absolutely wonderful. I liked it so... More
