Ridge Vineyards traces its history back to 1885 when Osea Perrone planted vines on Monte Bello Ridge to the east of San Jose in California. The quality of the terroir saw the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon rise to high acclaim by the 1960s. Success supported the selection of further vineyard sites, with Zinfandel showing a particular penchant for the new terroirs. Syrah, Grenache, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Chardonnay have discerningly been grown only in sites where they excel.
Ridge relies relentlessly on nature and tradition rather than technology. Their pre-industrial approach is straightforward: find intense, flavourful grapes; intrude upon the process only when necessary and draw the fruit’s distinctive character and richness into the wine.
We are delighted to have Katie Blakely joining us all the way from California to tell us more about the estate and guide us in a tasting through their fantastic wines.
Locally renowned chefs, João Ferreira Pinto and Molly Humphreys of Canto 73 fame, have devised a sensational menu for our delectation. They will serve up five courses, one to go with each wine:
Leeks all the way - leeks with a leek foam, leek ash and leek oil
Rosemary honey roasted delica pumpkins, cashew and mushroom purée and toasted pumpkin seeds
Herb crusted lamb, truffle potato and grilled mushroom
Quince sorbet with Parmesan crisp
Cheesewith home-made crackers
Chocolate cakewith fava tonka creme fraiche
