Advance Tasting Program

Advance Tasting Program

Since 1977, the Advance Tasting Program (ATP) provides members the exclusive opportunity to receive very limited, single-vineyard wines. Old-vine field blend zinfandels and Rhone varietals (syrah, grenache & carignane) remain our primary focus. Each ATP selection reflects Ridge's winemaking style, emphasizing the distinctive qualities of geographic location, as well as grape varietal. ATP wines receive the same careful attention given other Ridge wines, including monthly topping-off and quarterly racking of barrels, analysis, and, of course, frequent tasting. The finest parcels of each vineyard are fermented separately, combined, then aged (almost entirely) in american oak barrels supplied by the country's oldest and finest coopers.
