Ridge Vineyards Virtual Tasting – Monte Bello winery
The New York Times described Ridge Monte Bello as “America’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignon.”
Ridge has sixty years of winemaking history at the top of Santa Cruz Mountains at Monte Bello.
A mountain home.
Monte Bello is first and foremost a wine of place. That place – high atop the Santa Cruz Mountains underlain by decomposing limestone and Franciscan rock – produces a wine unlike any other.
A Cool Micro-Climate
The Monte Bello vineyard, located only 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean, is part of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, California’s coolest cabernet producing area.
