"Wine Country Meetings"
At Ponzi Vineyards there is private event space next to the tasting room. Other options include hosting dinners out in the vineyard, in combination with a vineyard tour. "The most popular event is social wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres," Focareto says. "Some other things we do are a little different. The bocce ball court a lot of times is a good team-building competitive exercise. In the spring, we can arrange a wine-tasting seminar and blending seminar led by a winemaker with an opportunity to make their own blend. It’s fun for people, especially if they are into wine and get taken through that process." Read more.
