Legendary Oregon Pinot noir producer Ponzi Vineyards announces all of their 2014 single vineyard and reserve wines will use the I-Cork from Rich Xiberta. The cork manufacturer guarantees every cork to be free of traceable TCA and other compounds that can cause off flavors in the wines. The 2014 Ponzi Abetina Pinot Noir and 2014 Ponzi Avellana Pinot Noir are the first to release from the winery to the national market with this technology. The wines, nationally distributed by VINTUS, LLC., will be available in most markets this month.

An innovative viticulture technique changing the way Pinot noir is planted.

This technique has evolved over two generations with four decades of evaluation and experience working with many different clones. Ponzi Vineyards now has over 30 acres of vines planted to clonal massale.
