Our People

“Two of our Core Values at Ridge are respect for People and our traditions and Collaboration. We have always believed that what makes us unique and a great company to work for is our rich diversity of people who come together every day. We would not be who we are, and where we are, without the contribution of every single one of our employees, their ideas, their backgrounds, and their passions. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we recognize that we can do better and know that our success is dependent on our ability to weave diversity, equity, and inclusivity into our culture.” Mark Vernon, CEO

Dedication to Human Rights

Inspired by our parent company, Otsuka, we have adopted a set of guidelines surrounding the respect of our people:

Otsuka Group supports and respects international covenants governing human rights as set forth by the United Nations International Bill of Human Rights (the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; the International Covenant of Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights) and the standards established by the International Labor Organization (ILO) in the Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. We also support and respect the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights into practice. As a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, we support and respect the Ten Principles.

Dedication to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Inspired by our field-blended wines whose finished product is greater than the sum of its parts, we continuously strive to ensure our company is diverse and inclusive throughout. We develop deep roots in our community and provide the necessary resources for our people to grow and flourish. Above all, we commit to holding ourselves accountable as an industry leader, cultivating an environment where people feel empowered to be their authentic selves.

Dedication to Community & Charitable Giving

Through charitable donations that align with our core values, Ridge Vineyards supports organizations that sustain our local communities. We focus our giving in the areas of education, health, community services, and the arts. Our goal is to foster growth within these underserved communities and to shine a light on their efforts to improve the wine industry.
