Posted Thu, June 23, 2011 in All Posts

Founders Dick and Nancy Ponzi represented Ponzi Vineyards, among some of the most prestigious wineries in the world, on Monday, June 13th at the 26th Annual Chef's Tribute at Rockefeller Center. This was the first time an Oregon winery was invited to the Chef's Tribute, a benefit for Citymeals-on-Wheels. Some of most celebrated chefs in country personally prepared and served amazing dishes to the more than 1,000 attendees. VIP tickets to the event were offered at $2,000 a piece. The event raised $788,000 in a single evening, from ticket sales and in-kind donations.

We're opening this special, cellar-worthy wine on the weekends. Enjoy a taste for $5. While available. 92 points
"Ponzi is one the leaders in Oregon Pinot Noir. Their Reserve bottling is consistently top-notch because they make only about 1,500 12-bottle cases of it. The lesser quality fruit goes into their two lower tiers of Pinot Noir. This Reserve has an exciting combination of delicate fresh red fruits and leafy savory notes. Flavors dance across the palate and linger. It’s my idea of Pinot Noir--flavor without weight."
