For more than four decades, the Ponzi family has used the rich soil of the Willamette Valley to produce lush, sustainable wines. Winemaker Luisa Ponzi worked alongside her father for many years, gaining hands-on experience with viticulture and foots-on experience with grape stomping. She deepened this education in Beaune, France, where she studied Burgundian practices. In 1993, Luisa earned her Brevet Professionnel D’Oenologie et Viticulture certificate, a first for an American woman.
Luisa and her sister Maria carry on the dynasty started by their parents, creating wine varietals suited to the climate with sustainable practices that respect the tradition of winemaking. In addition to stocking the cellar with an award-winning collection of pinot noir, pinot gris, pinot blanc, chardonnay, and white riesling, the Ponzis fill bottles with arneis and dolcetto, two rare Italian varietals.

It's hard to tell what should get top billing at Vinotopia: the locally sourced, organic farm-to-table cuisine or the massive wine list from which it gets its name. The latter features nearly 200 red, white, and sparkling wines, the majority of which boast a rating of 90 or higher from the likes of Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, or Robert Parker; a large handful have been rated 95 or higher. You can enjoy all of these by the bottle, and some by the glass, with the upscale cuisine. Hormone-free, grass-fed Painted Hills meats take center stage on the menu, which offers gourmet burgers, juicy ribeye steak, 48-hour fresh seafood, and a wild-mushroom tart with ricotta-thyme filling. All of this—the wine and the food—is served in a romantic dining room inspired by Hollywood's golden age or in the glow of the expansive patio's outdoor fireplace.
