Ridge Vineyards is a winery in California that specialises in producing premium Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Zinfandel wines. Before Ridge Vineyards was founded in the early 1960s, its Monte Bello location was utilised for winemaking since 1885. In 1969, Paul Draper joined Ridge Vineyards as a winemaker, helping the brand to see much commercial success before his retirement in 2016. As recognition of his contribution to the wine industry, the Institute of Masters of Wine awarded Paul Draper the prestigious Winemakers’ Winemaker Award in 2013.
Under Paul Draper’s guidance, Ridge Vineyards started producing wines that saw excellent success, helping the brand gain international recognition. Till today, Ridge Vineyards proudly uses a pre-industrial approach to winemaking, relying on nature and traditions instead of modern technology to produce unique wines with greater complexity and ability to age. Ridge Vineyards focuses on producing single-estate wines, allowing them to emphasise the distinctive characteristics of each growing site. The resulting wines showcase the intense flavours of the grapes and exemplify why Ridge Vineyards is considered by many to be among the best wineries in the United States.
