Ponzi Harvest Intern - Andreia
Meet Andreia, Ponzi’s Harvest Intern from Portugal! Andreia has worked in the wine industry since 2009, with this being her fifth year working harvest. She has worked in several different wineries in various countries, from Portugal to New Zealand to Oregon. She loves everything about making wine, and chose to work at Ponzi after hearing about Oregon’s high quality wines from friends in New Zealand. Her favorite wine from this region is the Pinot noir, especially when it is very well made and powerful like Ponzi’s Pinot. Cheers to Andreia!
Ponzi Harvest Intern - Alex
Meet Alex, one of this year’s Ponzi Harvest Interns! Alex is from Denver, Colorado, and has worked in the wine industry for almost 5 years, mostly in New Zealand. Alex loves being able to still follow his passion of working with music while also working with wine, and in his spare time he writes his own music and performs at festivals. He enjoys Rieslings and other aromatic varietals, and is looking forward to working with new varietals he normally wouldn’t back home. Cheers to Alex!

Harvest Party 2014 at Ponzi Vineyards!
Ponzi's annual Harvest Party took place last weekend in celebration of Harvest 2014. Family and friends from all around Oregon came out early Sunday morning to help pick and enjoy a traditional Ponzi harvest lunch. Nancy Ponzi along with granddaughter Mia Hamacher brought freshly made sticky-buns out to the vineyard mid-morning for the guests to enjoy. At lunch, the celebration continued on the plaza with fresh caught Alaskan Halibut, creamy polenta, homemade desserts and more. Cheers to Harvest 2014!
