Ridge Vineyards: The Fall 2018 Releases

October 29, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a very special night featuring our favorite winery in America
Ridge Vineyards: The Fall 2018 Releases
with special guest Katie Dinovo, Regional Manager for Ridge Vineyards… AND we are tasting MONTE BELLO!

Join us for a special night enjoying some of the best wines made in America.

Ridge Vineyards needs no introduction. Their wines are considered as good as they get, with the Monte Bello commonly referenced as the best red wine made in America. For over five decades they have consistently produced the best wines from some of the oldest vineyards, always letting the wine make itself and thus reflecting a true expression of California terroir.

We will have the first preview of the latest releases from the 2016 vintage, along with one wine from the 2015 harvest (the East Bench). A range of Zinfandels will be most of the event, but we will also taste and learn about the legendary Monte Bello, which retails for $225 a bottle.

Included will be a comprehensive discussion on the history and philosophy of Ridge Vineyards, the impact of Paul Draper on the world of wine, their single vineyards including history and location, and the future of this amazing brand.

Expect a huge amount of information while enjoying some of the best wines of the year.
