About the Winery
The story of Ridge Vineyards starts in 1885 with its founder, Osea Perrone. Osea was a doctor by profession. He purchased 180 acres of land at a place close to the top of the Monte Bello Ridge. He worked on the slopes and prepared them to plant vineyards. He used native limestone to construct the winery. At that time, the name of the winery was Monte Bello Winery.
Osea produced his first vintage in 1892 under the same name as Monte Bello. Today, the place is the production factory of Ridge Vineyards. Lying at a beneficial elevation, the winery remains surrounded by an “upper vineyard.” It gets called the Perrone Ranch.
A theologian named William Short purchased the abandoned vineyards and winery located further down the Perrone property in the 1940s. He tidied up the land and planted Cabernet Sauvignon on the parcels. After that, it changed owners several times before finally landing in the hands of four individuals.
In 1959, Charles Rosen, Howard Zeidler, David Bennion, and Charles Rosen purchased the vineyards and the winery. At that time, they were engineers working at Stanford Research Institute. Thus, Ridge Vineyards came to be.
