It's A Triple Celebration!!


We invite you and yours to help us celebrate the six year anniversary of PONDL Winery, as well as the birthday of our wine maker Pat, and of course St. Patrick's Day!! There is no admission fee to this event, just our way of thanking  you for your support over the last six years. There will be new wine releases, Pat's famous corned beef & cabbage, Mom's potato salad and live music from "Stephanie D Trio" singing Motown and beyond! So bring your lawn chairs and join us in the picnic area from 2-5 pm. Signing off from the purple barn! Cheers! ~ Pat, David, Beau & Lady
NEW 2015 Barbera - Lodi
Toasty, robust with oak and spices on the nose. Bold mouthfeel with big flavors of black plum, strawberry, and pomegranate on the palate. A hint of black cherry on the finish, with just the right amount of acidity! 

WINNER!! Double Gold 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition! 

We are pleased to announce that we were awarded Double Gold in the 2018 San Francisco Wine Competition for our Syrah/Cab blend, 'Chris' Dream'! This wine is age-worthy, great with food. Molasses, earthy leather on the nose. Blackberries, raspberries, wild strawberries, front of mouth. Mid-palate, tannins are pronounced, but restrained and full of spices – allspice & anise, with eucalyptus on the finish. Come & experience the "dream" at PONDL Winery!

WINNER!! Bronze 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition!
We are pleased to announce that we were awarded Bronze in the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition for our 2015 Old Vine Zine Late Harvest! It was our first ever OVZ! The vines are 95-year-old vines east of Lodi in the heart of Lodi AVA. Intense inky color! This is a serious sipping wine, with warm, ripe jammy flavors. A hint of dried fruit leads to a long sweet finish. Come in for a visit and taste the heart of Lodi wine country!
