Description

Ponzi Vineyards, Pinot Gris Willamette Valley

Ponzi Vineyards’ pioneer plantings of Pinot Gris were in 1978 before the variety was known in the United States. The first vintage was released in 1981 in a half-bottle format. From the beginning, Pinot Gris has played an important role in the Ponzi Vineyards portfolio. To this day it continues to be an accessible wine that is extremely food-friendly.

“Honeydew melon, white peach, kaffir lime with spicy notes of cardamom, clove and floral aromatics of pear blossom and candied orange make this appealing nose leap from the glass. The fresh palate is defined by tangerine and kumquat acidity intermingled with apricot and green tea.”
​- Winemaker, Luisa Ponzi

I am a red wine drinker. But occasionally I run across a white wine that really catches my attention. This is one of those wines. Ponzi Pinot Gris is clean and not overly citrusy. It is delightful and perfect for warm weather. This white is so impressive, that many of my red wine drinking friends have ordered this white wine. And you can’t beat the CorkQueen Price!
