This Weekend’s Post-Harvest Celebration Tasting: Who’s Hosting, & What We’re Tasting!

(Spoiler Alert: There is information detailed below that will quite likely lead you to really, really, really wish you’d made a reservation for this special tasting. So I’m going to briefly open up the bookings for a couple of extra seats. To book now, just proceed to the bottom of this post! And then come back and read what you missed, of course …)


As you may recall, we’re hosting a very special set of tastings this weekend at Monte Bello:

In honor of Harvest 2012’s successful completion, Ridge Vineyards is staging a very special Post-Harvest Celebration Tasting at our Monte Bello Estate, on November 10th and 11th, at 1pm each day.

This unique tasting experience will feature:

—A brief talk from (and Q & A session with) a key member of our Monte Bello Vineyard Team

—A multi-media presentation from a staff member embedded with the Vineyard Teams

—A five-wine Single-Vineyard Estate flight that concludes with a very special library offering

Space is very limited for this sure-to-be-memorable tasting, so we encourage you to book early!
