well - for us - it was a sojourn, a required visit. we have loved ridge wines for decades, and we had never been to Monte Bello. Both the Lytton Springs and Monte Bello locations are wonderful. the wines are excellent, but the tour and tasting we had a monte bello was amazingly beautiful.

For $30 per person, you get the Estate Tasting and vineyard tour. That includes a wine making lesson on what makes this vineyard unique, a geology lesson on what makes the wine unique to this area, as well as a very delicious wine tasting flight with expert tasting notes, as well as snacks, and an amazing view of Silicon Valley....

Their wines compete with the best of CA wines. It doesn't get any better in Napa or anywhere in California than the reliably excellent wines at Ridge. Go for a tasting, pack a picnic lunch or just some cheese & crackers, and sit on the top of the world, sipping their rapturous wines.

I booked to have a for the estate tasting. I rocked up a little bit late as I had no idea that the road to the vineyards was so steep and winding. (Give yourself extra journey time) Luckily as it turns out I was the only one booked on the tasting so I had a private tasting and tour. My... More

And of course stellar wines. I went for an afternoon tasting and really enjoyed it. It was a little hard to find but the instructions on their confirmation were clear but the road is very windy with big drops. On arrival I was greeted by Lauren and we tried our first wine and had a short tour of the vineyard.... More

I visited Ridge Monte Bello to try their famed wine. We did a full flight which was quite good. The view is really something. Though we visited on a hot day, the breeze and shaded area were cool enough. Don't forge to hike up to the top for an amazing view!

We signed up for a $30 per person tasting experience which we enjoyed even though we thought it a little pricey. This tasting included their Monte Bello blend which is a real treat. The tour guide was informative but the presentation seemed to be somewhat "canned" as some of her areas of knowledge were limited. The grounds are beautiful. We... More

Ridge Vineyards is a favorite of mine and has been one of the most consistently good wineries that I've known for at least 20+ years. The Montebello and the Lytton Springs are my personal favorite wine labels. If you want to visit a good winery with character, then it's worth the drive past Stevens Creek Reservoir and up the windy... More

This vineyard has gorgeous views, if you can navigate the drive up safely. The road to this is a bit daunting, very narrow, for the most part one lane, and winding road that has both car and bike traffic. However, once you get up there the grounds are spectacular. The tasting room is very nice, all wood and glass. It... More
