“Beginning in 1962 with the fabled Monte Bello vineyard, Ridge Vineyards has achieved global acclaim under the auspices of the equally legendary Paul Draper. Alas, for most us the wines of Monte Bello are out of reach; being both expensive and in short supply.
In contrast to the wines of Monte Bello, Adam Holden of Berry Bros & Rudd explores the Ridge Zinfandel portfolio and describes it as having garnered a “dedicated and loyal following,” showing what the varietal is capable of “in the right hands.”
Holden touts the Ridge principles of sustainability and gives a nod to our “pre-industrial” winemaking and organic farming methods, noting, “it’s clear that they are neither hoisting themselves onto the bandwagon nor paying lip service; principles of sustainability are built into their very essence.”
