September First Friday

September 3, 2010

Location: Monte Bello

Ridge Vineyards welcomes you to the September edition of First Friday! For this episode, we’ll be showcasing the new September ATP release, the 2007 Buchignani Ranch Zinfandel. The delicious result of an early-breaking growing season displaying a full, balanced crop and moderate sugar levels, this wine is described by winemaker John Olney as being “rich, yet elegant”, and displaying “firm tannins and bright, intense fruit.” Sounds good to me! Sound good to you? Then come join us at First Friday, and be among the very first to sample this new vintage from one of our favorite old-vine properties (it was planted in the 30s, 40s, and 50s), the Buchignani Ranch! Shipment Pick-Up Details: This wine will be available for pick-up for our ATP members. An RSVP must be submitted no later than Thursday, September 2, to do so. If you do not RSVP by this deadline, your wines will be shipped. The event runs from 4-7pm at the Monte Bello Tasting Room (Cupertino) and all day long (11am to 5pm) at the Lytton Springs Tasting Room (Healdsburg). Please note that while this is a Member Event, we are more than happy to host guests of our members as well!
