If you buy a Groupon deal - it is worth trying out. But otherwise, their wine batches are different tastes from bottle to bottle (of the same wine). We have been to many wineries and we just don't prefer this one.

The wine was very good selection and the gentleman was very pleasant but the only thing that made our experience suck was the crabby old lady who I believe is part owner. She was rude and unpleasant to be around.

We have visited North Ridge several times. The proprietors are friendly and the wine is very flavorful! We will return soon!
