Vintage Notes

Ridge has made this single-vineyard wine since 1966. In this vintage, we included Petite Sirah from the 19th century vines on a portion of the Geyserville Vineyard called the Old Whitton Ranch. Though we harvested earlier than usual, all the grapes were fully mature, resulting in rich fruit flavors. A small increase in the amount of new oak used in aging accentuates the wine’s spicy, forward character. Though accessible now, it will develop further depth and complexity over the next four or five years.


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 yeasts in extended, submerged-cap fermentations, aging in small oak cooperage, and careful racking at every transfer to achieve clarity. Located above 2300 feet on Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains, our winery overlooks San Francisco Bay.
