Premier Cruz is the perfect opportunity to meet all the cabernet producers and try the world-class wines of Santa Cruz Mountains.

The Santa Cruz Mountains AVA has been recognized as a premium cabernet-producing region since the late 1800’s when local winegrowers began to win acclaim in national and international competitions. In Paris, 1976, a blind tasting proved that California wines could equal and even surpass the great French wines. One of the twelve wines chosen to represent California was Ridge Vineyards’ Monte Bello Cabernet. The tasting was repeated in 2006 with the same vintages and the Ridge Monte Bello was judged the top rated wine.
