April 17, 11-5 — SATURDAY ONLY! Monte Bello Tasting Room (Cupertino) Ridge Vineyards cordially invites you to enjoy an exclusive opportunity to taste a barrel sample of the new Monte Bello. Members of our Winemaking team will be on hand to host as we taste the latest assemblage of the 2009 vintage. We will also be pouring a spectacular trio of older-vintage Monte Bellos in half-bottle format; the 1990, 1992, and 1994 vintages. Not only are half-bottles an economical way to take home a bottle of our flagship Monte Bello Cabernet blend (these limited-inventory rarities will be specially priced for this event!), but courtesy of the accelerated development of wines bottled in smaller format, these very cellarable vintages are ready to drink now! We’ll also be pouring our 2006 Monte Bello Chardonnay, recently awarded 95 points by Wine Spectator! This event is $30/person for the general public, $15/person for members of our ATP and ZList programs, and complimentary to Monte Bello Collector members(+1 guest per membership). For our non-member guests, the event fee will be refunded to those who join the Monte Bello Collector futures program the day of the event, and for our ATP and Zlist members, the $15 event fee will be applied to any Monte Bello purchased in the Tasting Room. Please RSVP by Friday, April 9th, to attend.
