It is said that great wines need perfectly poor soil, just the right amount of sunlight, and above all, a great view.  Our goal here at Black Ridge is to produce wines that best express our exceptional vineyard. Plantings consist of multiple clones for most of the varietals, many of which are harvested, sorted, and fermented separately.  The diversity of soil type and characteristics of each clone allow us to be selective when creating the ideal blend. We plan on remaining small since we value the fact that our wine is 100% estate grown fruit.

The inherent, discernible attributes of our vineyard are reflected in each of our wines.  Our rich, floral whites and our concentrated, decadent reds are great representations of what our vineyard has to offer now and shows promise as to what it holds for the future. Our wine is made possible by the tremendous efforts and attentiveness of our vineyard manager and winemaker, Bill Brosseau, along with the devotion and support from the rest of the Black Ridge team. We hope you enjoy our wines as much as we enjoyed the entire process of getting our grapes into your glass.
