Ridge Vineyards Z-List Tasting This Saturday and Sunday

I know there are a lot of Ridge fans out there because of the response I got to my recent review of one of their wines. Well now here's your change to go hang out and taste most of their lineup. Its an event that is theoretically for their mailing list customers, but it also happens to be open to the public if you're willing to cough up fifteen bucks.

The event takes place at BOTH their Monte Bello (Santa Cruz Mountains) and Lytton Springs (Sonoma Valley) tasting rooms simultaneously, so pick whichever is closest to you and go drink some good wine, including some of their older vintages which they tend to trot out on these occasions.

Transportationally-challenged SF dwellers (such as myself) can get a pretty good Ridge tasting fix at the ZAP! tastings in January too. See http://www.zinfandel.org for those details. Cheers!

2 tips on economising:
- get on the list by buying futures
- forgo the $15 and just taste at the bar... they always have a free tasting option

but i think it's totally worth $15!!!

I really like the Ridge wines, but are they old school? Are they new school? In the old days they were far ahead of the other winemakers, better than most Cabernet Sauvignons. Are they as good, or better than their competitors? I’m asking, ….
