Ridge has a reputation for great wines from their success at the "Judgement of Paris" in 1976. First, don't expect to be tasting anything at that quality level. You'll get some standard wine at standard tasting rates. So, that part of the experience is OK. The issue we had was with a couple of staff members. Generally we find wine... More

This has been my go-to vineyard for years. When family/friends come to visit us, this is the first place we go. Everyone loves their wine; the wine snobs in our family and the rookie wine tasters all find the wine delicious, fun, and complex. The vineyard is beautiful (I recommend the estate tour on your first visit). Everyone is nice... More

Ridge winery was an unexpected delight. We stopped by while in the Healdsburg area as we had a few minutes between tastings. We ended up with some Montebello to take home and once our hostess warmed up, we had a very informative tasting experience. Would highly recommend this Vineyard.

Friday we arrived from SF in a limo for our 11am "Private Hosted Tour and Tasting." We were escorted by David, starting with a ride through the Vineyards in a modified passenger cart vehicle. He explained how the blocks in the vineyard had been planted and labeled and noted that harvest would begin tomorrow being Saturday. We also got to... More

We stopped in for a basic bar tasting, plus the Monte Bello. We enjoyed all the zins, left with a bottle of Mill. Our server (from France) was knowledgeable and attentive. Definitely worth a stop!

David took us on a tour of the vineyards in a golf cart and told an entertaining saga of his personal wine biography and the story of the winery with an emphasis on the Zinfandel variety. Then a tour of the wine making process with barrels piled higher than I had ever thought possible (see photo). The tasting room was... More

We took part in the vineyard tour and private tasting. Our tour guide took us through the vineyard on a golf cart while telling us about the history of ridge and the vineyard. Inside, we went into the winery, saw the barrel room, than went upstairs into a private dining room for our tasting. Our tasting included 5 wines including... More

Been a Ridge fan for 20-plus years and Lytton Springs in particular. They have a couple of tasting program, one of which you can enjoy on the patio and they bring the wines to you.

We went for a wine tasting. The wines were fine and concentrated. It is like any other winery where you have to squeeze in on a bar to have a tasting. The attendant was good and dynamic. They had the option of outside tables, which I should have chosen. I would recommend to have a sit down tasting instead of... More
