Ridge Vineyards

The Monte Bello site of Ridge Vineyards lies 2600 feet above sea level in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It is a winding tortuous drive up a road more reminiscent of an alpine pass than of America.

The altitude here ensures a slow ripening process and the results are more European than most would expect. The vineyard was originally planted in 1885. Paul Draper has been the driving force here having joined in 1969 and is often described as a Professor or Philosopher as well as a wine-maker. In the re-enactment of the 1973 tasting in Paris that shook the Wine world it was Ridge’s 1971 Monte Bello that took the top honours both in the UK and in the USA. There are 3 sites: Monte Bello on the Santa Cruz Mountains predominantly Cabernet based wines. Geyserville (pronounced Guyzervil not Geezervil!) in the Alexander Valley North of the Napa in Sonoma County, where the wine is predominantly Zinfandel. Finally Lytton Springs south of Geyserville between Dry Creek and Alexander Valley again mostly Zinfandel and Petite Sirah.

About En Primeur

Lying Abroad/En Primeur/In Bond Wines

Wines offered ‘Lying Abroad’ or ‘En Primeur’ provide a good way to secure some of the most sought after wines at opening prices. In addition we ensure it is the cheapest way to buy favourite mid-priced wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhône, so please ask us for our offers or check our website for latest reports. Prices are clearly marked in our sales literature and are exclusive of duty, shipping, marine insurance and VAT. Shipment of claret and Port normally takes place around 30 months after the vintage, burgundy and Rhône usually more quickly. A second invoice for the duty, shipping, marine insurance and VAT on the value of the wine is charged at the time of shipment - view current duty rates. There are no further charges for deliveries to a UK mainland home or work address. Your Lying Abroad purchases are covered under The Bunch Code of Practice which can be sent on request or viewed here.
