Ponzi Receives “Whole Farm” award
For the first time, Salmon-Safe and LIVE teamed up to give a “Whole Farm” award at this year's LIVE annual meeting. Ponzi is this year’s recipient! Winemaker Luisa Ponzi was in attendence to receive the award.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of our Vineyard Manager Miguel Ortiz and the Ponzi vineyard crew, compliance with LIVE program guidelines is possible.
In 2000, Ponzi Vineyards was certified by LIVE, the Oregon program for Low Input Viticulture and Enology. The certification recognizes compliance with specific sustainable agricultural practices and products. In 2008, the new Ponzi Vineyards winery, Collina del Sogno, became one of the first Oregon wineries to be recognized as LIVE Certified Sustainable.
