“A wonderful place to visit, and, wonder wine”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have been a Ridge member (basically all the wine clubs) for many years. The staff at Ridge has always be helpful and efficient with respect to business gifts, and tasting visits. Ridge has provided tastings at the Monte Bello facility and in Sonoma. As for the wine, it is consistent and consistently excellent. In this day of over the top cult wines, priced for collection rather than consumption, it's nice to have one producer providing interesting wines and good values. I strongly urge folks to try the ATP, which provides you with unusual varietals, made in small amounts. It's a great way to broaden your wine experience and build a little cellar.

“Favorite Zinfadels”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Ridge produces some of the best Zinfandels. I'm a big fan and the last time I was there I subscribed to to their Z-list wine mebership to receive two shipments of their wines a year.

Always a favorite wine and winery. You can't get better wine or a more beautiful setting. Winery staff are gracious and willing to provide recommendations for lunch, dinner or other interesting activities.

“Visit to Ridge”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife and I visited the vineyard in July during a trip to the Napa Valley area. Years ago we had purchased a case of Ridge Zinfandel wine and enjoyed them. We put some away to age and discussed our impressions of these wines (8 years old and 11 years old) during the visit. We had a very informative discussion about storing and aging our wines and signed up to join the winery's Z Club. Our experience with Ridge wines has been very positive. It is a well run organization that produces very fine wines. The 8-year old wine was fantastic but the 11-year old wine was, to my taste, beginning to fade. It's nice that each Ridge wine is labelled with an estimate of the aging potential of the wine. We just received our first shipment of wine and expect to enjoy it for years to come.
