We recently enjoyed a tasting with two friends at Ridge Winery at their tasting room (patio) perched on the mountains overlooking the Bay Area. Their wines are excellent and the outdoor tasting patio is very nice and the view is outstanding and the staff is knowledgeable (and friendly). They are COVID compliant ( reservations required) we will be back once the stay at home order is lifted. No need to schlep up to Napa when we have outstanding wineries in our own backyard so to speak.

From the PA Weekly heading...
'The 2020 vintage:'

A bit premature to be referencing the 2020 vintage as barrel aging, bottling & in-house/winery bottle aging means the 2020 vintage will most likely not be released until several years later at the discretion of the cellar master & proprietors.
