Ponzi Vineyards' pioneer plantings of Pinot gris were in 1978, before the variety was known in the United States. The first vintage was released in 1981 in a half-bottle format. From the beginning, Pinot gris has played an important role in the Ponzi Vineyards portfolio. To this day it continues to be an accessible wine that is extremely food-friendly.
Ponzi Pinot Gris is noted for aromas of vanilla bean, pear and almonds, earthy flavors of fresh quince with golden apple sweetness on the finish. It continues to be the winery's flagship white wine.
