Surrounded by beautiful 115-year-old vines, our eco-sustainable Lytton Springs Winery stands as one of the most unique sites in all of Sonoma County’s wine country. A natural extension of Ridge’s commitment to sustainable vineyard and winery practices, this remarkable facility (built of straw bales and vineyard clay, and primarily solar-powered) is a wonderful environment in which to experience our exceptional single-vineyard wines.

No reservation required for groups of 8 or less. We offer three unique tasting flights, “Single-Vineyard” ($10), “Estate Single-Vineyard” ($15), and “Estate Single-Vineyard w/ Monte Bello” ($25, and includes our flagship Monte Bello). Wine Club Members receive Estate and Single-Vineyard tastings complimentary for up to 4 guests.

Estate Tour and Tasting
The personalized tour takes you through our century-old vines, explores the rich history of Ridge Vineyards and the historic Lytton Springs property, and allows you access to our eco-sustainable winemaking facility built of straw bales and vineyard clay. You conclude with a seated tasting in our private tasting room, consisting of side-by-side comparisons of our most limited single-vineyard, estate wines including our legendary Monte Bello.

This semi-private experience is $35 per person and limited to groups of 10 adults. Reservations are required with two appointment times available each day at 11am and 2pm. The experience lasts at least 90-minutes and participation is limited to adults only, age 21 and over.

Century Tour and Library Tasting
Beginning with a colorful captain in the 1870s and evolving into a straw bale winery and historic vineyard, Lytton Springs tells a story of land development, boom and bust, chance encounters, and the rebirth of the wine industry, all reflected in the old vines still standing today. This unique experience provides a rare opportunity to explore this century-old estate and learn, first-hand, about one of the most historic vineyards in all of California.

This private experience is $45 per person and limited to groups of 4 adults minimum (or fee equivalent) and 10 adults maximum. Reservations are required with two appointment times available each day at 11am and 2pm. An older vintage of Monte Bello can be added to the tasting for an additional $25 per person. More information.

Beautiful Mountain: A Monte Bello Cabernet Tasting
Called “America’s Greatest Cabernet Sauvignon” by New York Times critic Eric Asimov, our Monte Bello is first and foremost a wine of place. That place – high atop the Santa Cruz Mountains underlain by decomposing limestone and Franciscan rock – produces a wine unlike any other.

This private tasting provides you and your guests a deep dive into the Monte Bello vineyard and the wines produced from it. Taste several Monte Bello cabernets, including back vintages, during this intimate, seated tasting experience. Offered daily by reservation only. $55 per person and limited to groups of 4 adults minimum (or fee equivalent) and 10 adults maximum. More information.
