Summer Wine Series!

August 21, 2010

Location: Monte Bello & Lytton Springs

Every year Ridge Vineyards is pleased to host two seasonally-themed series of wine-tasting weekends in our Tasting Rooms: Summer Wine Series and Winter Wine Series. August will be this year’s showcase for our Summer Wine Series, and each Saturday we’ll be offering a select flight of wines with a unique theme. Please read on to see the special themes we’ve selected, and other important event details: August 7 ATP Round-Up! Join us in tasting four of our favorite limited-production, winery-only ATP offerings, including some that are close to selling out! August 14 Chardonnay Showcase! Ridge Vineyards currently has an unprecedented four chardonnay offerings currently available, and this will be your chance to sample them all! August 21 Zinfandel: The Art of the Blend! Try four zinfandels in a row, each with one more varietal in the construct; solo varietal, two varietals, three varietals, four! August 28 Site-Specific/Multi-Format! Taste two different bottle formats of Santa Cruz Mountains Estate in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and two of Lytton Springs in Dry Creek Valley, and experience bottle maturation in action! Each Saturday in August, we will be offering the four Summer Series-themed wines as part of our Monte Bello Flight; this unique rendition of our menu will include not only the Summer Series wines, but also a taste of current-vintage Monte Bello, and the exquisite, and exquisitely rare, 2007 Geyserville Essence! The fee for this flight will be $25/person (non-members), and $10/person (members). No reservation is required. (For our guests who opt not to participate in the Summer Series event, we will offer, as always, a Guest-Member flight option.) Best of all, if you return on a following Saturday with your receipt from a previous Saturday’s tasting, your flight is complimentary, and we’ll include a 6-bottle Ridge Vineyards eco-tote! This is an all-day event, and our tasting rooms are open from 11am-5pm.
