We’re inching closer to Harvest 2017. The Pinot noir grapes on the vines at Ponzi Avellana Vineyard are almost completely covered in their signature dark plum. The first day of picking is still several weeks away, but the vineyard crew and winery production team are busy preparing. Stay tuned for more harvest updates!
We’re pleased to present the 2015 Ponzi Single Vineyard Cuvées, showcasing the most outstanding vineyards from what has been called “the state’s most extraordinary vintage” by Wine Spectator.
Winemaker Luisa Ponzi is renowned for her mastery of blending many vineyards to create elegant and balanced Pinot noirs and Chardonnays. But when a single site expresses all the qualities of a complex, complete wine, it is selected for a limited production bottling and named for the vineyard from which it is crafted.
From Ponzi Vineyards’ 45th year come five wines from five distinct vineyards:
2015 Ponzi Abetina Pinot Noir
2015 Ponzi Aurora Pinot Noir
2015 Ponzi Vigneto Pinot Noir featuring Wahle Vineyard
2015 Ponzi Avellana Chardonnay
2015 Ponzi Aurora Chardonnay
To access these beautiful wines before they are returned to the cellar, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pre-release access to these wines ends Saturday, October 7th. Reserve your wines for pick up at the Harvest Dinner or for shipping after the event.
Construction is really taking shape on the new hospitality space at the stunning Collina del Sogno property, overlooking the expansive Chehalem Mountains. As of today, the foundation is poured, the walls are up and we are beginning to see Portland-based Fogelstrom Design Build’s plan come to life. The build out is just next to the current tasting room and when completed will provide us with a dedicated space to host wine-centric events. Starting in Spring of 2018, guests can party and relax while sipping world class Ponzi wines in an elegant new space. Just check out the view!
We will be sure to keep you up to date on the exciting construction project as we near completion of this lovely addition to the state-of-the-art-gravity-flow winery and modern tasting room.
We had the pleasure of viewing the eclipse at Ponzi Vineyards this morning. While we weren’t completely in the path of totality, the event was nothing short of extraordinary.
The Ponzi team gathered on the winery plaza to share the experience together. The anticipation and excitement were palpable. An eerie shadow swept across the valley as the moon eclipsed the sun. Just as quickly as the landscape darkened, the sun’s steadfast rays came shining through once again, flooding the winery grounds in light.
Missed the eclipse? You won’t have to wait long. While Oregon won’t be in the path of totality, the next total solar eclipse will sweep across the United States in 2024!
The countdown begins to the total solar eclipse and Oregon happens to be right in the path of totality. The team here at Ponzi Vineyards is gearing up to experience history in the making. In an effort to ensure everyone stays safe watching the eclipse across the world, here are some tips from our friends at NASA:
On Monday, August 21st, the Ponzi Vineyards Tasting Room will be open regular hours, 11-5:30pm.
Veraison is underway in the vineyard. The trademark speckling can be seen throughout the Pinot noir blocks at all four Ponzi sites. As harvest approaches and the grapes continue to ripen, the color will take over each cluster and deepen to a dark shade of plum.
An article discussing the growth of ¡Salud!, a healthcare group dedicated to serving Willamette Valley vineyard workers, recognizes Nancy Ponzi as one of the influential advocates who pioneered the organization.
