Lot 3: Estate Tasting at Ridge Vineyards
Ridge Vineyards invites you and five friends to one of their beautiful winery locations for an Estate Tasting Experience, a seated tasting flight of five single-vineyard wines from their estate vineyards in Sonoma County and the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Ridge has pioneered single-vineyard wine making since 1962, and at either the Monte Bello or Lytton Springs locations, you will have the opportunity to experience the estate wines known throughout the world for their excellence and distinctive sense of place.
In addition, you will take home a double magnum (3L) bottle of the impeccable 2017 Monte Bello Cabernet. With a specimen this rare, it may be difficult for wine collectors to decide whether to leave the bottle unopened in their cellar or drink it upon maturity. In fact, winemaker notes of the 2017 Monte Bello says, “A vintage that can be laid down for a good 50 years, I spent a year searching for the perfect cork to give us that ability to hold the wine for that much time.”
The Monte Bello Cabernet, which has been made by Ridge Vineyards since 1962, “introduced Ridge to the world” and is known as the winery’s “flagship” wine. This glossy dark vintage has impressed wine lovers with its concentrated, deep flavors and aromas. Enthusiasts have flocked to this wine since it gained international fame at the Judgment of Paris, and it continues to stun with its elegance and complexity.
Treat your friends and family to an estate tasting, and add one of the best Monte Bello vintages to your cellar.
