This rare Italian varietal was planted on five acres in 1990 at Aurora Vineyard. Ponzi Vineyards is one of only a handful of Arneis producers in the United States -- recognizing early on the climatic match between Italy's Piedmont region and the Willamette Valley. A dry white wine that perfectly complements appetizers and light entrees. 100% LIVE certified sustainable.
"Floral aromatics of chamomile, star jasmine and orchard blossoms mingle with notes of just ripe peach, nectarine and Meyer lemon. The mouth is bright and dominated by flavors of quince paste, ginger, fennel and persimmon. The wine finishes salty with a touch of red grapefruit and white tea."
—Winemaker Luisa Ponzi
