Today we celebrate the groundbreaking on a new tasting room and offices. The new facilities will be located at the same site as Ponzi Vineyards' state-of-the-art, gravity-flow winery, built in 2008. This site, dubbed Collina del Sogno, for the glorious hillside upon which the buildings sit, enjoys sweeping views of the Chehalem Mountains and the lush valley below. The tasting room and grounds are expected to open sometime in mid to late 2013. The new location will be open in addition to the Beaverton-based Ponzi Estate Tasting Room and the Ponzi Wine Bar in Dundee.
