Ridge Vineyards / Lytton Springs
Over 40 years ago, in 1962, Ridge made its first Monte Bello, and two years later, its first zinfandel. Since this time, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, searching California for those rare vineyards where climate, soil, and varietal are ideally matched. Lytton Springs, in Sonoma County, became part of the Ridge estate in 1991. A quarter century's experience with this vineyard had convinced us that it was an exceptional piece of ground. At Lytton Springs, Ridge has built a sustainable winery, made of compacted rice straw bales. The walls covering the bales are made from a simple mixture of clay from the vineyard, sand, and straw. The Lytton Springs tasting room looks out on the old vines to the south, and into the barrel room to the east.
Zinfandel accounts for most of the production; cabernet sauvignon, syrah, grenache, carignane and chardonnay constitute the balance.
