MARISA, PINOT NOIR
WILLAMETTE VALLEY, OREGON 2017
The rolling hills of the Chehalem Mountains, nestled in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, are home to acclaimed Ponzi Vineyards. Nearly 50 years ago, the winery was among the first to showcase to the world just how good Oregon Pinot Noir could be, and the family winery is now run by the second generation: sisters Luisa Ponzi and Anna Maria Ponzi. Under the women’s leadership, “Ponzi Vineyards remains a reference point for American Pinot Noir with winemaker Luisa Ponzi at the top of her game” (Robert Parker). Today we’re excited to unveil their newest project, ‘Marisa’—a combination of the Ponzi sisters’ first names, Luisa and Maria. In typical Ponzi fashion, the wine displays the best of the Willamette Valley terroir: expect intense aromas of dark berries, cranberry, and cinnamon that lead into flavors of strawberries, herbs, red cherry, and warm baking spices. The 2017 Marisa is a silky, delicious Pinot Noir that we’re able to offer to our Concierge customers with a limited-time discount up to 25% off. Finding quality Pinot Noir sub-$30 is a great feat indeed, but we were up for the challenge!
As one of the first American women to be formally educated in Burgundy, Luisa crafts wines of distinction and character each vintage, blending her formal training with lifelong experience working in the vineyards alongside her father, Dick Ponzi. Along with Ponzi President Anna Maria, this powerhouse sister duo is not only maintaining the reputation of Ponzi Vineyards, but helping it soar. The 130 acres of Ponzi vineyards and state-of-the-art winemaking facility are certified sustainable, showcasing the Ponzi family’s commitment to environmental responsibility and building a winery that will last for generations to come. Act quickly to take advantage of our one-week-only Concierge offer on this handcrafted Pinot Noir from one of today’s leading producers.
