Santa Cruz Mountains
Since 1967 Ridge has produced very limited quantities of this wine from the hundred-year-old Zinfandel vines at the Jimsomare Ranch on Monte Bello Ridge. The distinctive, aromatic character of this wine is typical of virtually every vintage we have made from this vineyard. Aging in French oak cooperage has complemented the wine’s elegance and firm acidity. It was lightly fined and needs several years in bottle to develop more fully.
Founded in 1959, Ridge was one of the first of today’s small, fine California wineries—limiting production to achieve the highest quality. From the beginning, close adherence to traditional winemaking techniques has set Ridge apart. This approach determines our style and includes the use of natural yeast submerged-cap fermentations, aging in small oak cooperage, and careful racking at each transfer to achieve clarity. Located above 2300 feet on Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains, our winery overlooks San Francisco Bay
