Ponzi Pinot Noir Reserve Vertical Wine Tasting

Featuring 12 Vintages of Ponzi Reserve Pinot Noir
Dick and Nancy Ponzi moved their young family to the Willamette Valley in the late 1960s with a spirit of adventure and a passion for making world class Pinot Noir. After many research trips to Burgundy and an extensive search for the ideal location, they purchased 20 acres on a small farm just southwest of Portland, Oregon. It was a daring risk — at the time, the Pacific Northwest was not thought to be a place to grow Pinot noir, but Dick and Nancy realized the Northern Willamette Valley’s climate was ideal for cool climate varieties. Pinot noir cuttings were planted, and in 1970 Ponzi Vineyards was founded.

The methods, philosophies and winemaking passion established nearly 50 years ago are still practiced today under the family’s second generation.

Ponzi Vineyards continues to set the standard for Oregon’s viticultural innovation while maintaining an unwavering commitment to a tradition of winemaking excellence. For the last 25 years, this philosophy has been carried on by the Ponzi family’s second generation: President and Director of Sales and Marketing, Anna Maria Ponzi and Winemaker Luisa Ponzi.

Join your guest sommelier Greg O’Byrne this Friday at Bottega Del Vino Santa Fe for a rare tasting of 12 vintages of Ponzi Reserve Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

Vietti Italian Wine Tasting

Featuring the Italian Wines of Vietti from the Piedmont Region

Located in the heart of the Langhe hills, at the top of the village of Castiglione Falletto, the Vietti wine cellar was founded in the late 1800s by Carlo Vietti. Today the vineyards include some of the most highly-prized terroirs within the Barolo winegrowing area.

In the 1960s Luciana Vietti married winemaker and art connoisseur Alfredo Currado, whose intuitions – from the production of one of the first Barolo crus (Rocche di Castiglione – 1961), through the single-varietal vinification of Arneis (1967) to the invention of Artist Labels (1974) – made him both symbol and architect of some of the most significant revolutions of the time. His intellectual, professional and prospective legacy was taken up by Luca Currado (Luciana and Alfredo’s son) and his wife Elena, who have contributed to the success of the Vietti brand – universally recognized today as being one of the very finest Italian wine labels.

Join us this Friday at Bottega Del Vino Santa Fe to taste 6 Vietti wines with Dawn Gaudini of Dalla Terra, the U.S. importer of these wines, and Greg O’Byrne. This tasting will also include tasty Italian salumi e formaggi.

  • Vietti Moscato d’Asti Cascinetta, 2020
  • Vietti Arneis, Roero, 2018

New Spanish Wines of Envinate

Envínate is the vinous partnership of 4 friends – vignerons Roberto Santana, Alfonso Torrente, Laura Ramos, and José Martínez. This gang of 4 formed back in 2005 while studying enology at the University of Miguel Hernandez in Alicante. Their collective aim is to make profoundly pure and authentic wines that express the terruño of each parcel in a clear and concise manner. To this end, no chemicals are used in any of the Envínate vineyards, all parcels are picked by hand, the grapes are foot-trodden, and the wines are fermented exclusively with wild yeasts, with a varying proportion of whole grape clusters included. For aging, the wines are raised in old barrels and concrete, and sulfur is only added at bottling, if needed. The results are some of the most exciting and honest wines being produced in Spain today.

Join Jose Pastor Selections GM, Chris Barnes, and Greg O’Byrne for a tasting of 7 wines from Envinate – 4 from the Tenerife Island in the Canary Islands, 2 from Ribera Sacra in Galicia and 1 from the Almanasa region at the Southeastern tip of Castilla La Mancha.
