David Gates of Ridge Vineyards visits Detroit

Master Sommelier Madeline Triffon introduces A Tasting of Ridge Vineyards, with Special Guest David Gates, VP of Vineyard Operations on February 27, 2013 at Plum Market in West Bloomfield, Michigan. The comprehensive line-up included Ridge Zins from the 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2006 vintages, including “East Bench”, “Ponzo”, “Geyserville” and “York Creek” as well as the Paso Robles bottling. The winery sent super-special treats: yet-to-be-released 2011 Paso Robles, Geyserville and Estate Chardonnay. And 1995 “Monte Bello” Cabernet Sauvignon, arguably California’s most historic vineyard! Ridge has not shown this vintage at a public tasting since it was debuted in 1998.

Access to the Court Of Master Sommeliers has always been strictly regulated and cameras have never been allowed anywhere near the exam…. Until now. How much do you know about wine?
