Founded in 1978, Pine Ridge Vineyards is a young winery by Napa standards, but the quality is undeniable. Most noted for their Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Bordeaux blends, the craftsmanship and love is noticeable in every sip. They take great care during their harvest season, handpicking at night so the grapes as well as the workers don’t suffer in the heat of the day. The grape clusters are collected in small bins that hold only 25 pounds to reduce bruising and crushing, and sorting is done by hand to remove any trace of stem pieces. This attention to the smallest detail ensures all you get is the juice.
