The Winery

Ridge Vineyards

The history of Ridge Vineyards begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor who became a prominent member of San Francisco's Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge. He terraced the slopes and planted vineyards; using native limestone, he constructed the Monte Bello Winery, producing the first vintage under that name in 1892. This unique cellar, built into the mountainside on three levels, is Ridge's production facility. At 2600', it is surrounded by the "upper vineyard."

4/5

A wine with a high layer and a nice cherry colour. The main aromas were coffee and wood.The mild flavour and the chocolate were present.
It did not match with the dinner.
My best friend from California recommended it to me.
