Hospitality Space Update - Opening in March!

The Ponzi Vineyards Hospitality Space among the vines

At Ponzi Vineyards Collina del Sogno, harvest is winding down. Only a few pretty yellow leaves remain on the vines. The skies offer a kaleidoscope of constantly changing gray fog, bright cobalt and sunshine and stormy dark rainclouds. In the tasting room, guests cozy up to the warm fireplace and sip complex Ponzi wines. 

Maria Ponzi and husband Bret Fogelstrom discuss plans for the hospitality space

The flurry of harvest activity is slowing, but the construction on the new hospitality space is still moving full steam ahead. The front lawn has been planted, and the siding installed. The windows are in and so far, things are going according to plan. Brett Fogelstrom of Fogelstrom Design Build has done a beautiful job!

Views for Miles- Hospitality Space Update

The new Ponzi Vineyards Founder's Room at Collina del Sogno, opening March 2018, boasts spectacular views of the Chehalem Mountains. Looking back at the new hospitality space from the Avellana Vineyard with the moon rising, the new build out's sprawling terraces are subtly nestled into the hillside. Portland-based Fogelstrom Design Build’s plan to match the beautiful topography of the surrounding Chehalem Mountains, creates an extravagant place from which to look out without disturbing the natural landscape. The new space is turning out to be perfection!

Here's another vantage point, just behind the pond, looking over the crest of the hill into the vineyard. For reference, the tasting room is just behind the new build out, out of view.

The view from inside the space is stunning. Designed to facilitate sipping, dining and socializing in comfortable luxury, the Founder's Room can accomodate up to 80 guests for a vareity of events; with access to Ponzi wines, delicious meals and views for miles.

Ponzi Vineyards completes the final phase of Collina del Sogno

Sherwood, OR (June 29, 2017) – Ponzi Vineyards began construction on a new hospitality space at their stunning property Collina del sogno, in the Chehalem Mountains, earlier this year. The buildout from the existing tasting room will provide the 47-year-old winery a dedicated venue to host wine-centric
events. Construction is expected to be completed in the spring of 2018.

Designed by Portland-based Fogelstrom Design Build, the flexible addition will accommodate up to 80 guests and can be partitioned off for more intimate tastings and receptions. A fireplace anchors the main room, but the real architectural showpiece is an arched wood ceiling that emulates the curve of a wine barrel, bringing both a sense of spaciousness and warmth to the space. Large sliding glass doors open to a private, wrap-around covered terrace, featuring an outdoor fireplace and sweeping wine country views.

Brett Fogelstrom of Fogelstrom Design Build comments, “This new space completes the building as originally envisioned. The material palette
of warm wood, concrete, steel and glass, together with the overall progressive form, is meant to express the Ponzi Family’s approachable and welcoming style as well as their constant drive for innovation. My hope is that people will come away feeling that they have experienced a very special place.”

The new building will provide a functional and elegant space for the winery to enhance the current hospitality program, further promoting world class, cool climate varietals, wine country tourism and culinary arts.


Ponzi Vineyards Tasting Room Progression
This third phase at Ponzi Vineyards’ hilltop property was preceded by the construction of a state-of-the-art gravity-flow winery and a modern tasting room.

Purchased in 2006, the 42-acre property off Mountain Home Road in Sherwood was planted to 20 acres of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot gris. In 2007, work began on the four-level, gravity-flow winery, conceptualized by Winery Founder Dick Ponzi and daughter, Second Generation Winemaker Luisa Ponzi. It was completed just in time for the 2008 harvest.

In 2013, the Ponzi Vineyards tasting room, also designed by Fogelstrom Design Build opened to guests, offering one of the valley’s first seated tasting experiences.

About Ponzi Vineyards 
When it comes to American wine, few possess the rich history and experience of Ponzi Vineyards, one of Oregon’s pioneering wineries. For nearly 50 years, Ponzi Vineyards has been a pillar among New World producers. The winery was founded in 1970 by Dick and Nancy Ponzi, at a time when Oregon Pinot noir was unknown and the region was not thought to be favorable to growing wine grapes. Ponzi Vineyards was recognized early on as a premier producer of Pinot noir and instrumental in putting Oregon on the map as a world class wine region.

This tradition of excellence is carried on with Second Generation Winemaker Luisa Ponzi and President Maria Ponzi, at the helm for more than 25 years. The winery continues to be a leader in cool climate varietal innovation through gentle handling techniques and advancements in the vineyard, including their latest, Clonal Massale. All 130 acres of Ponzi vineyards are certified sustainable, recognizing the winery’s commitment to environmental responsibility. Ponzi Vineyards sets the bar for Oregon wines and remains at the forefront of quality American wine. Learn more at ponziwines.com
