The Oregonian's 2012 Spring Wine Guide: To dine in wine country, recommends The Dundee Bistro as a great Willamette Valley restaurant to visit while enjoying wine country.
Late spring and early summer can be a glorious time to visit Yamhill County.

SF Chronicle Picks Ponzi Rosé

New release 2011 Ponzi Pinot Noir Rosé is a pink pick from The San Francisco Chronicle.

The Weather Machine is part art, part weather forecaster. Ponzi Vineyards founder Dick Ponzi was one of the minds involved in its creation in the late 1980s.
