About Ridge Vineyards- Lytton Springs

We invite you to experience the splendor of Lytton Springs; century old vines surrounding our state-of-the-art eco-sustainable winery and tasting room. A perfect setting to enjoy our exceptional single-vineyard wines.

In 1959 Dave Bennion and his three partners, all Stanford Research Institute engineers, purchased the historic Monte Bello property and made a quarter-barrel of "estate" cabernet. That Monte Bello Cabernet proved to be among California's finest wines of the era. Its quality and distinctive character convinced the partners to re-bond the winery in time for the 1962 vintage.

In 1966 we began sourcing Zinfandel from the historic Geyserville vineyard in Sonoma County. 6 years later in 1972 came our first Lytton Springs bottling. A quarter century's experience with the Lytton Springs vineyard had convinced us that it was an exceptional piece of ground and became part of the Ridge estate in 1991. Though born in the early sixties to the post-Prohibition world of modern California winemaking, Ridge relies on nature and tradition rather than technology. Our approach is straightforward: find intense, flavorful grapes; intrude upon the process only when necessary; draw the fruit's distinctive character and richness into the wine.

Surrounded by beautiful 115-year-old vines, our eco-sustainable Lytton Springs tasting room and winery stands as one of the most unique sites in all of Sonoma County’s wine country. A natural extension of Ridge’s commitment to sustainable vineyard and winery practices, this remarkable facility (built of straw bales and vineyard clay, and primarily solar-powered) is a wonderful environment in which to experience our exception single-vineyard wines.
