Since the first vintage in 1966, Geyserville has displayed an unparalleled consistency of character with each subsequent offering. Working the land in a sustainable fashion means that Ridge takes an environmentally conscious approach to the whole vineyard through techniques such as integrated pest management, cover cropping, composting, and hand harvesting. Some of the vines here are one hundred and thirty years old!
