Pondview Estates Winery is a family affair. The Puglisi family have been grape growers for over 3 decades. In 2008, Lou was crowned the distinguished title “Grape King’ & toured the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia where he met other small family owned wineries.
Returned inspired, Lou & his extended family decided to establish Pondview to craft their own wines made with grapes from their well established vineyard. More & more grape growers in Niagara are transforming their grape farming business to incorporate a winery as well. With a commitment to viticultural & winemaking excellence along with a welcoming tasting room offering traditional Italian cheese & antipasto, Pondview has become an overnight success.
Cheers & Enjoy!
Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: Made with grapes from the outstanding 2010 vintage, the perfectly ripe grapes were barrel fermented & aged 9 months in both French & American oak. The result is a full-bodied wine with rich aromas of vanilla, toffee & orchard fruit (think pear, peach, apple) with smooth, creamy full flavours & a deliciously long finish.
Suggested Food Pairings: Chilled on its own or with your favorite seafood (can you just imagine this wine with steamed lobster?) or pasta with a rich cheese or cream sauce.
