Ponzi Vineyards has a long history with Riesling. The winery produced the varietal in a dry style from 1974-1993 with much success. Unfortunately, the market was resistant to the varietal until recently when it has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity and an acceptance from cooler regions like Oregon. In 2005, Ponzi returned to its Riesling roots with a beautiful expression of the grapes long enjoyed.

2015 Ponzi Reisling Grapes for this small production bottling generally come from the old vine Riesling at the Ponzi Estate Vineyard, as well as neighboring Chehalem Mountains vineyard, Alloro. Ponzi Riesling is crafted to be nearly dry and is a lovely low alcohol wine.
