SUNDAY, JUNE 30
The history of Ridge Vineyards begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor who became a prominent member of San Francisco's Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge. He terraced the slopes and planted vineyards; using native limestone, he constructed the Monte Bello Winery, producing the first vintage under that name in 1892.
Today the Ridge Winery produces a wide variety of award winning wines using organic and sustainable farming methods coupled with non-industrial, old world production methodology.
Join us for a special five-course dinner paired with the exceptional wines from Ridge Winery.
Guests will be greeted with a Glass of Sparkling Wine and an Appetizer Reception
