Travel expert at USA Today, Gina Birch, features Ponzi Vineyards in her recent article “West Coast Wineries Who are Making Amazing Sustainable Wines.” Birch details that the notion of purchasing sustainable products once only mattered only to a very small and niche market. However, mass consumers are now consciously electing to purchase these responsibly produced products. In keeping with market demand, many West Coast vintners have increased their sustainable practices.
Ponzi Vineyards is proudly highlighted as not only a leader of sustainable practices domestically, but also for producing quality wines that put Oregon on the international map. Sustainable pioneers in their state for 50 years, Ponzi uses cover crops rather than chemicals for soil health. Winemaker Luisa Ponzi says, “It also ensures we do not deplete the land of essential nutrients needed to grow high quality grapes.”

Today winemaker Luisa Ponzi continues her work with the family of Champagne Bollinger, which acquired the estate in 2021.
