Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Gris 2017 (90 VM)
“Green-hued straw. Aromas of fresh peach, pear and orange, lifted by a spicy ginger flourish. Fleshy and dry on the palate, showing good clarity to the juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Picks up a suave floral quality on the persistent finish, which leaves hints of fennel and chamomile behind.”
Ponzi Vineyards Pinot Gris 2017
One of the original and most recognized Oregon and U.S. Pinot Gris producers, Ponzi was a major influence in establishing Pinot Gris as the first quality white grape variety in Oregon. Ponzi’s Pinot Gris is an irresistably aromatic and expressive wine, and serves as a first encounter for many wine drinkers with Oregon wines and the Ponzi estate.

Dick and Nancy Ponzi helped put Oregon on the map in the United States and the world, and the Ponzi family has worked continuously for over 50 years leading and innovating in the region and, in the case of Pinot Noir, across the country and indeed the world. Today winemaker Luisa Ponzi continues her work of the last 30 years with the family of Champagne Bollinger, which acquired Ponzi Vineyards in 2021.
