IWCA Membership

We are proud to announce that Ridge Vineyards is joining International Wineries for Climate Action (IWCA), an association of wineries dedicated to decarbonizing the global wine industry. As an applicant member, we continue our long-standing belief that we are good shepherds of the land, which has included regenerative agricultural practices, organic farming, and sustainability. Our membership is a commitment to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050.

About

In 1962, Ridge made its first Monte Bello, and two years later its first zinfandel. Since that time, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, searching California for those rare and exceptional vineyards where climate, soil, and variety are ideally matched.

At Ridge, we call our approach to winemaking “pre-industrial.” We believe that for anyone attempting to make fine wine, modern additives and industrial processing limit true quality. Relying on the natural yeast, we let the terroir define the wine and make our winemaking decisions based upon taste, not a recipe. We believe in transparency and as a result, we include a list of ingredients on every wine we make. We are committed to sustainability and organic farming and we are the largest grower of organically certified grapes in Sonoma County and the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation.
