RIDGE VINEYARDS WINE DINNER
Spruce
San Francisco, CA
Share this event:



THE HISTORY OF RIDGE VINEYARDS BEGINS IN 1885, WHEN OSEA PERRONE, A DOCTOR AND A PROMINENT MEMBER OF SAN FRANCISCOS ITALIAN COMMUNITY, BOUGHT 180 ACRES NEAR THE TOP OF MONTE BELLO RIDGE. HE TERRACED THE SLOPES AND PLANTED VINEYARDS; USING NATIVE LIMESTONE, HE CONSTRUCTED THE MONTE BELLO WINERY, PRODUCING THE FIRST VINTAGE UNDER THAT NAME IN 1892. IN THE LATE 1940s, WILLIAM SHORT BOUGHT THE ABANDONED WINERY AND VINEYARD AND REPLANTED SEVERAL PARCELS TO CABERNET SAUVIGNON. IN THE 1960s, NEW OWNERS DAVE BENNION, HEW CRANE, CHARLIE ROSEN, AND HOWARD ZIEDLER, ALL STANFORD RESEARCH INSTITUTE ENGINEERS, MADE A QUARTER-BARREL OF ESTATE CABERNET. THAT MONTE BELLO CABERNET WAS AMONG CALIFORNIA'S FINEST WINES OF THE ERA. ITS QUALITY AND DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER CONVINCED THE PARTNERS TO RE-BOND THE WINERY IN TIME FOR THE 1962 VINTAGE.

THE FIRST ZINFANDEL WAS MADE IN 1964, FROM A SMALL NINETEENTH-CENTURY VINEYARD FARTHER DOWN THE RIDGE. THE FOUNDING FAMILIES RECLAIMED THE MONTE BELLO TERRACES, INCREASING VINEYARD SIZE FROM FIFTEEN TO FORTY-FIVE ACRES.

RIDGE RELIES ON NATURE AND TRADITION RATHER THAN TECHNOLOGY. THEIR APPROACH IS STRAIGHTFORWARD: FIND INTENSE, FLAVORFUL GRAPES; INTRUDE UPON THE PROCESS ONLY WHEN NECESSARY; DRAW THE FRUITS DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER AND RICHNESS INTO THE WINE. PLEASE JOIN US AS WE WELCOME JOHN OLNEY FOR A DINNER FEATURING THE WINES OF RIDGE VINEYARDS WITH A SPECIAL MENU CRAFTED BY CHEFS MARK SULLIVAN AND STEVEN PELAS.
