Ridge Vineyards is a leading prestigious California winery that Otsuka Pharmaceutical acquired in 1986. Ridge Vineyards is famous not only in the United States but also in Europe as a consistent producer of award-winning, world-class wines.
Ridge Vineyards' approach to wine production emphasized traditional methods and uses processes that are as natural as possible in both grape cultivation and wine fermentation.
Mr. Paul Draper, the CEO of Ridge Vineyards and an unparalleled winemaker who has been with Ridge for more than 40 years, continues to craft superior wines with exceptional balance and longevity.
Since its founding, Ridge has remained steadfast in its commitment to bringing forth the individual character and distinctiveness of each individual vineyard; most of Ridge's estate wines are made from grapes grown at single sites, and are named after these individual vineyards.
