Spring Release Celebration at Lytton Springs
Join us in celebrating the arrival of spring and the release of our new wines.
In conjunction with the Wine Institute’s “Down to Earth” April campaign, we will be spotlighting our longtime commitment to natural methods and sustainable traditions. Our organically certified Lytton Springs vineyard and eco-friendly winery, solar-powered and straw-bale constructed, will be the ideal backdrop to soak up the celebration and enjoy our newest releases. Meet and mingle with our winemaking and vineyard teams while learning about Ridge’s 50 year commitment to environmental stewardship.
A delicious array of local and organic foods will be paired alongside our wines.
Spring Releases include:
2010 East Bench Zinfandel
2007 Lytton Estate Syrah
2009 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
2009 Estate Merlot
2010 Estate Chardonnay
plus a surprise or two!
