About Ponzi Aurora Vineyard
With a direct east-facing view toward the sunrise over snow-capped Mt. Hood, Aurora Vineyard is located atop a Chehalem Mountains slop. The 80-acre vineyard offers an array of southeast-facing slopes and crowns, some perfect for Pinot Noir, others for white grape varieties. Aurora is the site of numerous viticultural experiments, including clonal and rootstock research. Additionally, it is home to many Dijon clones of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and rare Italian varietals Arneis and Dolcetto.
