Meet Sammi, one of The Dundee Bistro’s sauté chefs, for this week’s staff #FunFactFriday!
Sammi has been with the Bistro for the past five years, doing a little bit of everything during his time here. He started working with pizzas and salads, eventually moving his way up to the sautéing station and now to the middle of the kitchen, coordinating both sides to ensure food is served quickly. His favorite dishes to prepare are anything with seafood, especially clams and cioppino, which happen to also be his favorite dishes to eat! Cheers to Sammi and all of his hard work.

Tour of 29 of the Top Wine Producers in Oregon
By: Emily Goldman, GoLocalPDX Contributor
Portland’s penchant for microbrews is no secret – see our recent article about Oregon being ranked the booziest state in America. However, we’re no slacker when it comes to wine.
The state of Oregon is the third largest producer of wine, right behind California and Washington. The Dundee Hills and surrounding area, located about an hour’s drive south of Portland, are known for producing globally renowned Pinot Noirs on par to anything produced in Napa Valley or Burgandy, France. The mineral-rich soil and climate of the Wilamette Valley combine to create an ideal environment for growing Pinot Noir grapes.
This Saturday, Dundee will be playing host to the “Deck the Hills” Wine Tasting, Holiday Market and Case Sale on the premises of Argyle Winery. More than 20 of Oregon’s top producers will be pouring samples of their wine and offering a 20% discount of all mixed 6 and 12-bottle cases. Participants can also sample food from some of Dundee’s favorite restaurants and bid on artisan “barrel art” at the holiday market auction benefiting ¡Salud, the organization providing healthcare services to Oregon’s vineyard workers and their families.
So take some time this weekend to enjoy a mini-vacation in Dundee sampling some of the best-tasting wine Oregon has to offer….
The Dundee Bistro is run by the Ponzi family who have been producing wine in the Willamette Vallley since 1970. The Ponzis opened up The Dundee Bistro to fill a growing need for fine dining to accomodate the area’s wine tourists, and they strive to create a welcoming atmosphere to tourists, residents, and winemakers alike.

Meet Cody, The Dundee Bistro’s “Awesome Busser” for this week’s #FunFactFriday!
Cody has worked at the Bistro for three years now, leaving for college during the school year and returning every summer. He attended UCLA, but took this semester off before transferring to either U of O or North Dakota State. What keeps him coming back to the Bistro are the people he works with, who he couldn’t imagine working without. His favorite dish at the moment is The Dundee Bistro’s house-made Truffle Fries. Cheers to Cody and all his hard work and dedication!
