We are thrilled to welcome one of heavyweights of California wine, Ridge, to this exclusive event for our members.
Eric Baugher, winemaker and chief operating officer, will be joining our USA buyer, Sarah Knowles MW, to share the history of Ridge and discuss the wines produced by one of California’s greatest wineries.
Ridge are situated high up in Santa Cruz Mountains on Monte Bello Ridge overlooking San Francisco’s Silicon Valley. Their vineyards are situated in two of California’s wine regions, the Santa Cruz Mountains (where you’ll find the Monte Bello vineyard that produces richly flavoured chardonnay and world-famous Bordeaux blends) and Sonoma, where their Lytton Springs and Geyserville vineyards show off the quality of their zinfandel ‘field blends’.
Whilst there won’t be a guided tasting, if you have any of the following from Ridge, then we encourage you to pour a glass to enjoy while you watch: Geyserville, East Bench, Lytton Springs, Estate Cabernet, Monte Bello.
If not, we’d recommend you pour something else – ideally Californian but as long as it is delicious then the choice is yours!
