History

Over fifty years ago, in 1962, Ridge made its first Monte Bello, and two years later its first zinfandel. Since that time, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, searching California for those rare vineyards where climate, soil, and varietal are ideally matched.

 

Wines of Place

Great wines come from great vineyards. Ridge respects the land, and allows its individuality to be expressed in the glass. Wines from Monte Bello, Geyserville, and Lytton Springs are known throughout the world for their excellence and distinctive sense of place. We base our grape-growing in each vineyard on long experience with the site, while simultaneously making use of the most recent advances in vineyard management.

 

Natural Methods & Traditions

As a leader in sustainable winegrowing, Ridge eschews chemicals in favor of natural farming, including cover crops, organic treatments, beneficial insects for pest control, and advanced methods to measure water stress and minimize water use. We are the largest grower of certified organic grapes in Sonoma County and the Santa Cruz Mountains.

 

Winemaking at Ridge can best be described as “pre-industrial”. It begins with respect for the natural process that transforms fresh grapes into wine, then guides that process based on long experience and consistency. The methods are those used in the late 1800s by the best California producers and the first-growth chateaux of Bordeaux, with the contemporary advantage of gentle modern equipment and an advanced quality control laboratory.
