Spotlight on Nancy Ponzi
Posted Wed, March 11, 2015 in All Posts
Nancy remembers, “It had been a miserable, cold day. The pruning, in the early years, my responsibility, and on this occasion I was way behind; dinner needed to be prepared, kids to be ferried and husband was cheerfully away teaching. I had cramps and was hating the vineyard. Shirley Coury called, comforted and appeared the next morning with boots, pruning tool and food in hand. The sun came out…we were in this adventure together.”

March is Women’s History Month and people all over are paying tribute to generations of women whose contributions have led to societal, political, social and industrial innovations. Ponzi Vineyards, a second-generation, sister-run winery, is committed to creating ongoing awareness of the women whose contributions have made a difference in our culture, specifically in the wine industry. Below is a speech from the winery’s President Maria Ponzi (outside of Women’s History Month) recognizing the pioneering women who have made the Oregon wine industry what it is today.
“Two Terrific Days in the Willamette Valley”
We are pleased to share the exciting article, "Two Terrific Days in the Willamette Valley" which recently ran in Wine Country International Magazine. Writer Christopher Davies provides a brief history on the Ponzi family along with a description of the tasting room, describing it as "modern" and "northwest elegant." The publication gave Ponzi Vineyards a top rating (5 out of 5 stars!) calling it out as an "amazing destination" and a "real deal, family run winery" with "premium quality wines."
