Ridge Winery - What you Need to Know 1) This winery is at the tippy top of a long and winding road up to the tippy top of a ridge. So go slowly, look for bicyclists, and enjoy the views! This drive is not for the faint of heart. 2) This is an IDEAL place for a weekend picnic. Ridge... More

Remarkable history of this winery, fostered by extraordinarily talented owners, has developed over 50 years - a top rated Cabernet Sauvignon named Monte Bello. We enjoyed a private hosted tasting last week atop the winding road to Ridge. The hospitality was incomparable and the wines we tasted were splendid. There is a tasting room, a covered picnic area, parking available... More

The trip here is an interesting hairpin climb. We brought a picnic and a bottle of wine and enjoyed the view and ambience. We didn't get to do the wine tasting as we came on a day that you needed bookings for private sessions.

The drive up there is adventurous. But once you get there and see the views your jaws will drop down. And remember so far you haven't tasted their wines. Ridge is famous for Zinfandel. But my favorite Ridge wine is Montebello. Even members have to pay extra to taste it but the $10 is totally worth it. They do not... More

If you love wine and vineyards, I can't imagine you will find a better place to visit than Ridge. Perched on one of the highest peaks in the area, the grounds and view are spectacular. Our tasting of 6 wines was hosted by a very engaging and friendly young man named Peter, who also lead us on a tour through... More

Beautiful surroundings, great for picnics.... Staff was friendly and took good care of us even during a busy time. Most importantly, their wine is good. I really liked their 2005 Cabernet. Bottle was a bit pricey, but the sampling was great.

If you want to visit a local winery Ridge is one of the best in SC County. They are a short ride from Cupertino into the hills. I've purchased Ridge wine for several years.
