Lovely grounds and views but the place is way out of the way for a tourist, tasting is expensive and the pours are small. Go for the smaller vineyards for equally good experience and a more personal experience with equally or better wines.

Lovely modern building with an incredible deck. The views cannot be beat. Go when they open- it gets a bit busy. On the weekends they have a flatbread- simple, but pairs well with wine. You must order the cheese plate- it is local and fabulous. The chevre was a standout but all were excellent. Large tasting area- mostly done at... More

Comfortable outside chairs and tables, some sun, some shade to meet everyone's desires. Good selection of wine in the "flight". Snack, especially cheese plates available for purchase as well. Service inside and out. Only vineyard we visited with a Pinot Noir Blanc, which turned out to be one of my favorites. There is a firepit and overhead heaters for cool... More

Modern, clean and beautiful place. We stopped by on the go, to grab a bottle of sparkling, grape juice. $15/bottle. It tastes sooooo good! The view from the terrace, is breath taking. This place is perfect for a romantic date or get together.

While the wine is a bit pricey, the view is totally worth it. We tried the moscato, and were in love! The patio is breathtaking, and our waitress was very friendly. There are a lot of photo opps here!

What an amazing place to sip wine and enjoy the view. This was one of our favourites on our little tour. Just beautiful and great that we were able to get wine by the glass - pinot noir is all we wanted.

While this place has amazing views, and its grounds are well cared for and beautiful. But...you pay for it in the price of the wines. We tasted better on our tour that were below 30 a bottle. It has a distinct snobby feel, not the staff but the people in attendance. We made this our quickest stop.

I was in Portland and needed to work my way up to Seattle for work. I wanted to visit one of the famed Williamette Valley vineyards or two but didn't have a lot of time to be driving around before the drive north. As such the hotel concierge recommended Ponzi as being the best of the vineyards close to Portland.... More

What a spectacular winery showroom. The helicopter in the field adds to the prestige of Ponzi and cheese plate is very delicious.
