The Ponzi and Dundee Bistro Staff Celebrate the Holidays

Posted Fri, December 09, 2011 in All Posts

It's hard to believe another year is nearly over. The Ponzi Vineyards, Ponzi Wine Bar and Dundee Bistro teams gathered to celebrate the accomplishments of 2011 and the holiday season on a chilly Friday evening this month. The Italian-inspired party was complete with wine from Vietti, dinner catered by Mingo and a mouth-watering assortment of Italian desserts- from Tiramisu to Cannoli.

At this year's event, nearly $680,000 was raised for the ¡Salud! healthcare program, which provides access to year-round healthcare for Oregon's seasonal vineyard workers. For the second year in a row, the Ponzi cuvée received the top bid at $10,000 to buyout the 5 case lot. In honor of their contributions to the ¡Salud! Program and community over the years, Nancy and Dick Ponzi received the ¡Salud! Legacy Award at this year's event.

92! from W&S for 2009 Pinot Noir

 2009 Ponzi Pinot Noir a Best Buy in the December issue of Wine & Spirits.

92 Points- Best Buy
"Scents of cola and spice yield to deep black cherry accents. There is such purity of fruit at first that the wine feels simple, but with air the black cherry is grounded by forest floor notes and kissed by oak, which gives the flavors length and ballast. It's a packed wine, and needs cellaring; wait a year or two and serve with pork loin." -Patrick Comiskey
