Ridge was featured recently in an article by Wine Enthusiast on “How to Buy Wine at the Supermarket, According to Sommeliers.” In the article, Ridge received a recommendation by Wine Director Mathew Pridgen, who called it a “steal.” The snippet from the feature read as follows:
Matthew Pridgen has shopped at Texas-based H-E-B for 20 years. On his Sundays off, the Underbelly Restaurant Group wine director spends the day tending to smoked meats. “I love a good California Zinfandel with barbecue, and the Ridge Vineyards Three Valleys Zinfandel ($30) from Sonoma is a steal,” says Pridgen. “It has ripe berry fruit and just the right amount of spice and oak to pair with perfectly cooked ribs.”
