Interesting Facts

"Monte Bello" is one of the best California wines of our time. It was first released in 1962. Grape wine is grown in appellasone Santa Cruz Mountains at an altitude of 700-800 meters above sea level. Cool climate and well-drained clay-rocky soil on limestone subsoils will produce excellent harvest of red grapes, which meets at the time of optimum ripeness. In 2000, the harvest was carried out from September 19 to November 2. Each variety vinified separately. Fermentation with regular remontazhem carried in small containers. After malolactic fermentation should hold for 18 months in new oak barrels (92% - American, 8% - French). Wine "Monte Bello" has excellent potential storage for a minimum of 25 years.

Company History Ridge Vineyards dates back to 1885, when the doctor Osea Perrone, an immigrant from Italy, bought 180 acres of land in the Santa Cruz Mountains and on the slopes of the Monte Bello Ridge broke the three-level terrace where planted grapes. The winery was built here from natural limestone. After the repeal of Prohibition in 1940, the winery and vineyards bought William Short, and in the early 60s the estate acquired new owners - Dave Benon and its partners. Today, the equipment used is not any comparison with the simple devices that have been before, but Ridge Vineyards continue to adhere to the traditional methods of winemaking.
