Eastern bench of Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County

HISTORY

In 1999, we planted the East Bench Vineyard, a 20-acre parcel planted to pure zinfandel. Ridge has made the East Bench Zinfandel as a single-vineyard wine since 2006. It is one of the few Ridge zinfandels that is 100% zinfandel. The vineyard sits high atop the bench land that overlooks Dry Creek Valley from the east.
