The First Course of our Holiday Feast

Each year, we take full advantage of the holiday season and prepare our Holiday Pairing Feast, an elaborate six-course meal complete with recipes and Ridge pairings.  You can access the recipes online or purchase the Feast Gift Pack which includes all of the wines and printed recipes in a beautiful Ridge branded wood box.  The pack provides everything an experienced or aspiring chef will need to execute this memorable meal.

The Food

The first course of this year’s Holiday Feast is a potato vichyssoise with spiced shrimp and nettle pesto.  This fun, spicy twist on the classic soup is the perfect start to a holiday meal.

The Wine

The wine selected to kick off this six-course meal is our 2014 Estate Chardonnay.  Sourced from the 20 acres we have planted at our Monte Bello Vineyard; the 2014 Estate Chardonnay has incredible balance and richness with beautiful fruit definition.  Here is what Winemaker Eric Baugher has to say about this wine:
