Blending 2011 Tavola Pinot Noir!

Posted Fri, June 29, 2012 in All Posts

The winery has quite a task to complete each summer. They sample hundreds of Pinot noir lots over the course of several weeks to pin down the exact combination that will beome the next vintage bottled.

The 2011 Tavola Pinot Noir will be a blend of 54 lots. This means it contains Pinot noir fruit from several different vineyards, made up of different clones and is cellared in a variety of barrels. By design, Tavola Pinot Noir is a bright, fruit-forward wine that is easy to drink and ready to enjoy upon release.

Look for the 2011 Ponzi Tavola Pinot Noir to release this fall.

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.
