Ponzi Vineyards 40th Anniversary Gala

Celebrating 40 years of crafting some of the finest Oregon wines, on August 21st, 2010 at 6PM, the Ponzi family welcomes you to a very special evening at their brand new winery facility, Collina del Sogno, honoring their history of winemaking in the Willamette Valley. The evening's festivities will include a tasting of wines from the family cellar (I'm dreaming of '99 Abetina), a memorable dinner by Chef Jason Stoller Smith of Timberline Lodge (formerly of The Dundee Bistro), dancing with music by the David Cooley Band and toasts to the past, present and future of Oregon wine. Seating is limited. Cocktail attire requested. $125 per guest.

Proceeds benefit the Youth Employment Institute, a Portland non-profit.

Ponzi was the very first winery we visited when we moved here 8 years ago and we were treated so rudely by the tasting room staff and one of the family that I've never bought another bottle again.. besides, the only wine of theirs that is even remotely worth buying is their high end pinot.. and there are too many other good ones around to bother with them.

( PS.. I have to admit that I just "discovered" routestock Pinot Noir... which I found out is their 2nd label.. and at 12 bucks a bottle by the case is a pretty good value for a decent pinot).
