  • It is a winery located on the mountain overlooking Silicon Valley. So I went to the weekend was pretty busy, but booking is necessary. It is good as a tourist the scenery is nice, but wine is taste ordinary staff. Did not come to buy because they have tasted 4 wines for $ 10 a bottle is $ 50 or more. Cute deer encounters on the way back.

  • Ridge Winery - What you Need to Know 1) This winery is at the tippy top of a long and winding road up to the tippy top of a ridge. So go slowly, look for bicyclists, and enjoy the views! This drive is...  more »
  • Remarkable history of this winery, fostered by extraordinarily talented owners, has developed over 50 years - a top rated Cabernet Sauvignon named Monte Bello. We enjoyed a private hosted tasting last...  more »
  • Wonderful grounds. Not sure about the wine... winery closed early at 2pm today. Google search stated 5pm. There is an annual private party and the coordinator neglected to update the Google search listing the times the winery is open to the public.
  • I have to say that the wine is good but I am not sure it is worth the trouble. When there before and enjoyed an afternoon with friends tasting the wine and based on that I joined the club. Wine is of course reasonably higher priced and to pick up the order you may end up waiting a year. But.. When trying to find out if I had a pick up, I had to call back 3 times because each time they hung up the phone on me. The final time I was able to reach someone, the person didn't know if I had wine to pick up (guess they could not check) and said that the manager would try to call me back. So.. wine is good but... dealing with waiting and then the customer service... in my mind maybe not worth it.
  • It sure is hard to get to, but once you arrive at Ridge Vineyards, you will find that the reward is worthwhile. bF and I came on a Sunday afternoon with our picnic in-tow. We arrived at just about 2:30pm and saw that most of the shaded picnic tables were taken. We went inside the tasting room to do our tsting first and when we came back out, most of the lunch crowd had left - resulting in plenty of shady tables with fantastic views. Ridge only makes 1 white wine -- the estate chardonney. I found it to be light and crisp, perfect for a hot day. This was what we ultimately ended up having with our picnic lunch. But anyone who knows Ridge will tell you that the real gem is their Monte Bello cab which typically improves over 15-20 years We joined the club without much hesitation and now... its simply a test of patience.
  • Although this isn't my favorite California wine region, Ridge Vineyards produces some very good wines. And the views from the tasting room are spectacular.
  • Great wines, super nice and knowledgeable staff. You can also picnic there - don't forget to buy a bottle before
