  • It is a long haul up a windy road, but the view is absolutely worth it. Ridge makes excellent Zinfandel wine, and is equally proud of the stuff, so don't expect it to be cheap. There are mulitple Zins...  more »
  • "Monte Bello" is one of two beautiful estates owned by Ridge Vineyards. You can buy famous Zinfandel ($40.00) at the shop there. Note that this zinfandel is produced in the other estate (Lytton Spring...  more »

  • Ridge is an amazing winery. Beautiful views, gracious staff and wonderful wines. Highly recommend a visit!
  • The wine is good. Atmosphere is great. The view is awesome!
  • Sooo Disappointed I am a HUGE fan of the ridge zinfandels. In fact, they can almost do no wrong in my eyes. However, I was left hugely disappointed by my trip to the vineyards today. I am from London and out of the 10 zinfandels that the ridge produce, only 2 are commonly available in the he UK. As these are my two favourite wines, I travelled from the UK to visit the vineyard to try the other eight. This turned out to be a huge assumption on my part. Despite making 10 zinfandels, only 3 were available for tasting in the tasting rooms. I explained how far I had travelled. I explained I'd like to buy a case of two. There was no movement. The staff were charming but 'their hands were tied', apparently. If you can't taste a vineyards wines at the tasting rooms, where the hell can you? I won't be back.
  • Beautiful winery that sits above the fog line on top of Montebello. It is quite hairy getting up there with some crazy hairpin turns, and you'll have to watch for cyclists too. Once you get up there, you are rewarded with wonderful views and excellent wine. Picnic tables are available. Signs point to rattlesnakes and mountain lions in the surrounding area. If you plan a visit, make it a leisurely one, as you'd want to linger and enjoy the scenery.
  • We liked their higher end reds but not enough to justify the price and the drive required to get there. We did not try the zin's however and we may be missing something there.
