- Company Information:
Since 1980, Greenwood Ridge Vineyards has built a reputation for producing world class wines in small lots (total annual production is only 6000 cases). Greenwood Ridge Vineyards has been named one of America's top 30 wineries three times in recent years by Wine & Spirits Magazine and continually receives "Best of Show" awards at major wine competitions.
Greenwood Ridge Vineyards is named for the coastal Mendocino County ridge top where our grapes are grown. From eight acres planted in 1972, our vineyard overlooking Anderson Valley has expanded to 16 acres, four each of White Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. At 1400 feet above sea level in the Mendocino Ridge appellation, the rolling ridge top property is above the fog and frost, so our grapes reach full maturity at the end of the ideal, long growing season.
It may seem trite to say that wines are made in the vineyard, but we know that our vineyard locations on Greenwood Ridge and in Anderson Valley contribute enormous character and style to our wines. The particular soils, sun exposure and maritime-influenced climate combine to give our wines extraordinary richness and classic varietal style
