On the Ridge

High on Monte Bello, looking down on Silicon Valley, is Ridge - one of the area's best wineries. We visited it last Saturday with saffronrose and spikeiowa, fellow oenophiles who were happy to taste old favourites and new vintages with us again.

Distant grapes

The Monte Bello vines curve over the mountaintop, a mix of old and new vines, still dark from the cold of the winter and ready for the promise of spring.

Old Vines

A fitting image for the spring equinox.
