It was a cloudy day today, we exhausted our decision making energy to see whether we should go to the wineries or not. We finally decided to go visit Ponzi Vineyards. It was a great decision and here's why: We were greeted by our favorite guy, Martin Groshong. Martin is full of energy and his personality shows enthusiasm and love for wine and what he does. He provided us with wonderful and unique wine tasting experience, showcasing their top white and red wines. The staff in Ponzi are friendly and very accommodating, making an extraordinary wine tasting experience. The wines are exceptional, consistently scoring more than 94 points by Wine Enthusiast.
The setting is great. The tasting room is beautiful and the wines are very high quality. I agree that the tasting is expensive but the experience was great. Am enjoying the Chardonnay and the Pinot noir. This is a great stop on a wine tour without having to go far from Portland.
Surprisingly close to Portland! great Pinot Noir and an incredible new tasting room.
If you want to "wow" your friends, this is the place! Amazing wine, service, and a gorgeous place to experience it all.
Go for the scenic views during the falls and all year around.
great experience one of the founding wineries in oregon! can"t go wrong
I've been a Ponzi fan since my first taste in 2001. I visited for the first time a few years ago. This time I brought my wife and wanted her to see the place I'd talked about several times in the past . We'll, it's definitely changed, but not for the better, in my opinion. It's still a beautiful facility and a great place to enjoy a glass of wine ine on a sunny afternoon, but the quality of service and salesmanship should be reviewed . 1st of all, I'm not as impressed with their current vintage releases and previous years I personally felt were better, but that's just my opinion, we all have different tastes. What I didn't like was the memorized canned speach from a staff member. Instead of introducing themselves, asking a few basic questions and building a repor with the potential customer, instead it was "do you want a tasting", that's $20 and I'll bring over your 1st pour. Each pour was (to me) a memorized 'you need to say this and this. ..' then walk away before I can form a question I may have. Not the explaining to the customer what they are experiencing , involving them in the discussion so depending on the level of the potential customers knowledge and comfort level you can guide them through the experience. I'm a potential customer worth $thousands$ in future sales and I can't get a few moments of your time to make me want to buy your wine? When we were finished, I waited for about 5 minutes and couldn't get the attention of our server I went to the front counter and waited a few more mins for someone and I asked if I could pay for our wine flight. After waiting a few more mins someone else asked if they could help me and finally paid my $20 and slowly walked out wondering ."why didn't anyone ask me if I was interested in purchasing anything ?". We took a few photos got in our car and just looked at each other and saying "what was that ?" Driving to Napa tomorrow to stop over for a day on our way back home after a 2 week trip. Maybe someone will sell me their wine in Napa. We bought several cases at two other favorites near Portland. Time to try out some new places..... ...
Travel Portland had the great fortune to host the National Tour Association dinner at Ponzi this August. Wow! Not only is the setting beautiful but the hospitality was terrific. Our guests were blown away by the evening and of course, the wonderful wine. If you ever need one of the best Oregon venues to host an event, choose Ponzi. A really amazing experience.
We just discovered the new tasting venue and it's beautiful. Excellent wines, view and service on our visit. A little pricey but well worth the cost of a tasting fee. They did bring up the club topic but it seems the other wineries are doing the same.
During the week this is a low-key place. It's out of the way location makes it a great spot for quiet wine tasting on a weekday. Out has a great view of the Scholls Ferry area and you can see Raptor Ridge Winery from the patio and parking lot. As one of the oldest wineries in the Yamhill county area, it has some very good wines. Pinot Noir is the focus but not sole varietal.
Good winery and Beautiful location and fireplace!
Beautiful drive up side of mountain to get there. Also, quite possibly the most beautiful tasting room in the area. Finely crafted Pinot and Chard, staff was great also. Little pricey, but aren't they all anymore in OR.
Loved the fresh modern look to everything.
This winery is outstanding, we just had to join the wine club it was so delicious and the view of the Chehalem Mountains soaked into your soul as you tasted the best pinot noir, pinot blanc, pinot gris and incredible chardonnay!
Pretentious environment, no bottle service, and very small pours on a flight. While the views are incredible, the experience left me waiting to escape.
Kid friendly! Great wine. Fantastic view. Great time.
Extremely rude and pretentious wait staff. Was treated very poorly, would not go again, and would advise others to not go either. Very sad to see a modern business behave in such a manner in 2018.
My daughter and I came by late on a Sunday afternoon. Hoping for good weather and the view. We were greeted by fog and Ian at the bar and stayed for our tasting as he was fun, knowledgeable and entertaining! Was going to go by the fire but didn't. Ian kept us entertained and shared great wines with us. Wish we would have come sooner. We will be back soon! Delicious! Thank you for a great experience!
Absolutely loved spending time here! Lovely hangout spot to just spend a relaxing day, perfect for dates, groups, get togethers, gathering. We also saw couple of groups having bachelorette parties. They have a great selection of wine! The flights are a must try. Surprisingly they had some food options too. The day we went was a little cold, but there is plenty of space indoors to spend time! Beautiful space with a gorgeous view! Friendly servers and their service was excellent! Now that summer is around the corner, pack your bags for this drive to the vineyard, it’s beautiful!!
Woman was extremely rude and treated my friends and I like we wouldn't be able to afford anything. It was awkward. Left before even tasting wine because service was so bad.
Views are fantastic, indoor/outdoor seating with fireplaces.
Beautiful facility and view but the wine was just so-so and the service was very inattentive.
Great wine, even better service.
Great history of top flight wines. The next generation is building on what its father, Dick Ponzi, started. Chardonnay are Burgundian in style.
We loved Ponzi! Lindsey Morse the Marketing Manager gave us a wonderful explanation of the wine, soil and geography of the vineyard. It was a special day. We LOVE their classic Pinot Nior!!!
Wonderful local vineyard, great wedding venue...
Amazing Pinots, amazing view, beautiful architecture and vineyard. They serve cheese and meat plates and you can order a flatbread. Enjoy a tasting or a bottle. This is a very cool place to hang out and one of the first Vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Matt the millenial is not the NO guy, he is the wine guy! He clearly loves the wine and loves to share the history. He is also very entertaining! Make sure to say hi to Matt!
Ponzi Vineyards is a treat. You must go, taste their wines and experience this beautiful wine tasting retreat for yourself. The new addition, Laurelwood, has fabulous views over the vineyard and the sunset is terrific.
Ponzi is the vineyard to be at. Great views, great employees and great wine. What more can you ask for really?

Ponzi Vineyard, this ia an excelent wine maker.in Oregon. Beautiful grape garden and winery location. Good taste.
Great staff,very helpful when chosen wines
A tasting flight is $10 for either three reds or four whites. Not a single thing was said about any of the wines during the tasting - just pour, and walk away. When the staff members did speak, it was just long enough to say something rude. Not recommended at all.
A gorgeous space and view that even the rain couldn’t tarnish. The hospitality was severely lacking, though. This was the winery visit that I was most excited for but the only one where I decided not to make a purchase. The staff seemed uninterested in presenting the wine or any interest in me and my husband. I probably wouldn’t go back. So disappointing for such a reputable label.
Wonderful crisp and clean Chardonnay's... On a visit from Wisconsin I can't say enough about how beautiful and relaxing the Ponzi Vineyard is... A unique wine tasting experience.
We loved our visit to Ponzi. The staff was amazing, knowledgeable, and so much fun! We had perfect patio seating by the fire and the view was fantastic! The wine tasting was a great sampling and we learned a lot in the process.
The views are simply amazing. The service? Not so much. Spent an hour here with my girlfriend and her father on a Sunday. We arrived with high expectations, but walked away 043556 disappointed. I didn’t mind the $20 tasting fee (I get it, you are paying for that new facility), but found it almost comical to a degree when we sat out on the balcony at a table that wobbled due to a leg being too short. The wine was fine. The food I’m not sure about as we ordered some bruschetta, but never got it as the server forgot to put the order in before we were ready to leave.
The view was beautiful and the wines were delicious. The person who took my order for my wine flight was not conversant in customer service. First, when I asked for the elderly lady in our company that prefers her wines sweet, he said "we have nothing for you here." Still wanted to try to make the best of it. After all, the scenery was lovely and that very nice lady who only likes sweet wines was here from England. The waiter, however, went completely absent from our presence after that. He could be seen taking pictures of other customers and bringing wine to other tables, however. I had to go back to the bar twice to get my own next pour. The two others working with him appeared to have noticed and bent over backwards trying to help me after that. I wanted to buy something. Decided against it. If it weren't for the view and the two very helpful employees, I would give this place 1 star. As it is, I'd never recommend a visit to Ponzi vineyard.
Beautiful views! Easy parking! Aside from that, plenty of other places I would recommend. The service was less than respectful and uneducated. No bottle service is a huge miss. And the miscommunication between employees is another loss.
Best wine I've ever had, gorgeous views, fantastic staff. Go here if you have even a faint interest in wine.
Way way overpriced! We brought a group of people here and they wanted $15 for 2 very small tastings. Crazy. We went down the road to cooper mountain and it was much much better. Never again will I fall for this place.
Good wine. Beautiful location. So scenic. We sat by the windows to look out and have a tasting flight. Our friends are members so the cost was the tip. Had a fantastic waiter. I would prefer a few more food choices. Menu is very limited especially if you are a gluten free or dairy free eater
Too pretensious by half. The girl pouring knew nothing about the wines and $15 for a flight of 4? Oh and they are not dog friendly judging from the barking coming from the cars. Out in the parking lot. In the sun. If you like hanging with arrogant fools who think high price = good wine then this is the place for you!
This winery had everything you'd want for a relaxing day out in the vineyards. I'm not sure if they do tours but we just came here to enjoy the scenery and drink some delicious wine. The outdoor patio area is one of the best with beautiful views of the vineyard, a fire pit with cozy seating. They also have bocci ball on the other side! The staff is super friendly and accommodating.
Amazing wine flight and super friendly staff!!! Very beautiful as well! Try the chard.
Incredible wine and amazing views!!!
Awesome views & great service. Excellent wine's.
Beautiful winery and views but service was poor and smug. They only do overpriced tasting and glass pours, no bottle service. Won't return. Many other local wineries that are more enjoyable.
Fantastic facility, good/great wine, seemed short staffed on Valentine's Day. It took some work to get the attention of the staff behind the bar.
This review is actually for the new tasting room which isn't listed on Google yet. $20 for a flight of four wines is obscene. Even Bergstrom only charges $15 and pours more expensive wines. And more than just four! But to add insult to injury: we wanted to buy a bottle of sparkling rosé and picnic at the tables overlooking the vineyards. We were told we could only eat their catered in antipasto plate at those tables, otherwise we had to sit next to the bocce courts where we couldn't see the view. Since we're vegan, the meat and cheese platter wasn't going to work. We cancelled the wine and left. Trisaetum was more than happy to let us eat our own food while enjoying a bottle of their artist series pinot. I have an olcc license as well as a food handler permit, so I know there isn't an issue allowing folks to eat brought in food on that patio since all their food is catered in. It's just shameless greed. Also they were very pushy about the wine club. Look, if I ask, then talk about it. Don't slap down an order form and pen. Third strike Ponzi. We won't be back.
We tried to do a tasting here a few weeks ago. It was a busy Sunday, but after waiting by the bar for 10 minutes, being *pointedly* ignored by the bartender and several waiters, we decided to leave. At that point, we did catch the eye of a waiter who condescendingly explained we should have checked in with the hostess who was supposedly by the front door. We hadn't seen her on our way in, and didn't feel like waiting for a table now (I don't know why we were told we'd need to wait for a table, there were several empty ones), so we left. There are too many nice, friendly wineries in the Willamette valley to bother with pretentious ones.
Definitely one of my favorite wineries! It's pretty close to Portland, so convenient, and it's pretty fancy but doesn't feel cold or unwelcoming. The staff was really nice and helped us through the tasting because we are not wine experts! Everything was delicious and I learned so much. I will definitely visit again and maybe do the tour next time. I bought a bottle of the Classico Pinot Noir for a dinner party and it was a huge hit! Highly recommended.
First time to a vineyard, awesome views and great wine. Thanks to our server ian we had an even better time learning and trying new wines.
To its own but I love their wine, friendly hospitality and location!!!
I could wax poetic about the personalized customer service I received from Martin Groshong; not smug, but smart, and genuinely thoughtful. It would be easy to spend an entire afternoon luxuriating in Ponzi's pristine tasting room. Though the space is modern, it still feels warm & inviting, and Ponzi's wines are esteemed within the industry. As a Tasting Room Associate myself, I look forward to recommending Ponzi to our guests. Truly an exceptional experience. PSA: Gone are the days of bottle service at MANY Willamette Valley vineyards.
We had Danielle for our tasting today and she was really great. Gorgeous view, delicious wine, we'll be back for sure!
There are so many great things about this winery! First and foremost, the view is everything. It’s like being in the south of France. Stunning scenery. Second, it’s got plenty of seating, both inside and out—it’s very spacious. Third, and possibly most important, is that for a winery, they’re actually kid-friendly! Now granted, it’s best if one’s children are well-behaved, but there’s Bocce Ball outside, they serve sparkling lemonade for the kids, and there’s a large grassy area for littles to roam when the weather is nice. The staff there is very friendly. It’s a great winery!
Can't order a bottle any more as of July 1st...Bummer. Canceled wine club membership July 2nd.
beautiful winery. the view of their vineyard is amazing. service is good. estate flight on tasting menu costs 20 dollars per person. that includes 4 different wine. We had delicious pinot and artisan cheese plate. surprisingly, the sparkling grape juice is also fantastic. We bought a 4 bottle pack lol. we had such a relaxing afternoon. This is the third winery we visited on that day. I was a bit tipsy but everything is wonderful. The building looks modern and sophisticated. It's certainly decent place for wine tasting.
Great wine! Great parking (EV charging for tesla and others) Great views! Great atmosphere for sitting and enjoying yourself! The one caveat is getting there, some winding/narrow roads and currently a lot of paving is going on in the area. Once they are finished it should be fine, but it’s worth it to get to this winery!
We came on a Tuesday afternoon, spent about 3 hours and loved it! We had a truly exceptional experience with the team here! Melissa and Martin were very welcoming, very knowledgeable on the wines and taught me how to taste the wine and enjoy the flavors. We asked probably a million questions about the location and history of it all and Martin answered our questions plus some! I definitely recommend this place as a go to for a wine tasting. Beautiful place and great team!
I really enjoyed the experience. The winery is beautiful and the wine is good
Amazing place all around. Great views, great wine and great staff.
Awesome view and great wine !
This is our second trip here. Wonderful staff, great wine choices. The cheese plate is to die for. And they have grape juice for kids. All 3 of ours lived it. Must visit!
Wonderful veiw, service and wine!
Beautiful, new and modern. The view is breathtaking. Tiny appetizers $15/ each. The one thing we were disappointed with was they didn't give us a "last call" on wine purchase for our group (while we ordered appetizers) then said, "sorry we are closed, can't purchase wine to drink here - only to go." they kept insisting like car sales men to "buy wine-to-go". Well we did drive all the way out here to enjoy different wines with the view.. But I guess not so much. The manager was really sweet. Definitely will be trying a different place next time.
Good view and decent pinot noir. Employees had little desire to serve and diminished the experience. Gave it a shot passing through. Do not recommend it for tourists or locals.
If you want great scenery and delicious wine, this is the place! The wine was so good, the service was friendly, and the views were well worth the drive.
Ponzi Winery is one of the nicest wineries I have ever been to, and you pay for in each glass you pay. Prices are high, but their wine taste good. Other wines taste just as good, so go for the sheer experience.
My husband and I will not be back to Ponzi Winery and you have lost wine club member. While visiting to the tasting room, with a friend who is a POC, was blatantly overlooked and not served by your staff. We requested to speak to the manager and she disregarded what our friend said she experienced. You have lost 6 customers and a previous wine club member. There are plenty of other wineries in this area, skip this one and visit one who treat all customers with respect.
My friends and I visited the new Ponzi tasting room this past week, and had an amazing time. The winery is surprisingly close to Portland, yet the venue is breathtaking. The design of the tasting room is very modern and beautiful, and it looks out over the valley. The staff were very kind and made for a wonderful adventure. Thanks Ponzi!
Always a great experience at Ponzi. This was my fourth time visiting the tasting room outside of Sherwood. Fantastic facilities, views and the crew is always welcoming and jovial. Yes, the tasting isn't the cheapest in the Willamette Valley but $20 a tasting is not unusual in other regions like Napa, and the price for a premium experience. Great for larger groups, huge interior tasting area, covered outside area and a bocce ball court for when the weather is nice.
Great wines and cheese! The environment was very chill and the view was beautiful.
It was ok. Views are amazing but the wines are only so so. Don't bother ordering a "glass" of wine. It costs almost as much as a tasting flight of 4 wines and you get the same serving size as 1 tasting glass.
I've lost count of the number of people I have introduced to the winery, that's how much I love them. Thanks for making us look good!! Love the staff, every one is friendly, articulate and knowledgeable. I'd go back every week if I could...so I'll just have to settle for a couple of times a month. See you soon!
Beautiful - but overpriced. Super crowded and the staff was less than friendly. Delicious pinot noir.
Beautiful location. The chardonnays were very nice. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. Highly recommend it.
