It's a ways up in the Santa Cruz mountains along the winding Monte Bello road to Ridge but worth every twisting corner. Fabulous wines and knowledgeable staff insure a wonderful experience. The 2012 Monte Bello received a 98 point rating and is spectacular.

As we drove our rented Mustang for what seemed like miles up the switchbacks, I started to wonder whether this was a good idea, but the view from the top was stunning, the wine impressive and our host -- a retired techology company CEO -- added a fascinating history lesson to the tasting. We had recently watched the movie Bottle... More

I have been a subscriber to Ridge's various wine clubs for years. So, an occasional visit is in order once in a while. I have always been impressed with the intelligence and knowledge of the staff we met. The views of the Valley are amazing. Pick a clear day if you can, bring a picnic and enjoy. The wines are...

First visit to this winery. Tried two different flights to share including top shelf montebello Cab ($175/ bottle). Amazing that every wine was different. We really liked two. Geyserville Zin blend and their Montebello Cab. The tasting room is very pedestrian. Staff are very nice and knowledgeable. View from hilltop is remarkable. The Geyserville was $38 bottle but at Safeway... More

A friend who lives locally took us to Ridge unannounced and they were happy to let us taste there reds. Some lovely Zinfandel wines and of course their famous Montebello. Lovely spot on top of a hill with views over San Jose valley.

I really love their new tasting area, you can either taste inside or they now have seating outside. Can beat the fresh air! We really enjoyed out tasting and ended up with a few bottles for the road. The pourer was great and had a lot of information he shared with us. It is a bit of a drive up... More

we arrived without reservations, and on the week, so we could not enjoy the tasting of the wines, but we were cordially shown around the place, the amazing views of the valley , and given a good history of the owners, the company and the provenience of the grapes. nicely done!

The Monte Bello sire has a "quaint" tasting room with history of the winery on the walls. Basically Reds from their different regions. I've not had one of their Reds that I didn't like. They can be a little pricey ($25 to $50 or more). Pack a lunch, buy a bottle and enjoy a wonderful view of Silicon Valley. Drive... More

Been awhile since we've been here, but it sure didn't disappoint! The new tasting area is fantastic, we choose to sit outside, our pourer was great and the wine was awesome! The drive up the hill can be a challenging, but well worth it!
