Ponzi Contest Winners Enjoy Harvest
Posted Sat, October 22, 2011 in All Posts
The winners of this summer's "Passion for Ponzi" contest spent the day in wine country experiencing Harvest. Despite the cool morning, they picked a quarter ton of Pinot Noir at Aurora Vineyard in less than an hour! After picking, they followed the Pinot Noir into the winery to see all the action that takes place turning the grapes into wine. Harvest lunch followed accompanied by some delicious Ponzi wines of course. Not a bad days work!
Thank you to our winners for their fantastic entries showing their passion for Ponzi wine. Today we were honored to share our passion with you....
