Estate Wine in partnership with the iconic Ridge Vineyards, exceptional single-vineyard wines since 1962, conducted an online wine tasting with the winery's COO & Winemaker, Eric Baugher.
The wine webinar, held via Zoom, highlighted on three wines which reflects the Ridge Vineyards' true essence of its astounding terroir. Ridge makes wines that compete in terms of quality and desirability with Bordeaux First Growths and Grand Cru White Burgundies. Winemaker Paul Draper has crafted 43 vintages at Ridge and his practical, hands-off approach to winemaking has resulted in an exceptional and highly sought-after range of wines.
Ridge is committed to sustainability and organic farming of their vineyards. Currently the largest grower of organically certified grapes in Sonoma County and in the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. Sustainability is both a philosophy and a set of environmentally responsible practices designed to safeguard the land on which they grow their grapes. It seeks to conserve and renew natural resources, protect wildlife habitats, and ensure the safety and economic security of their employees.
