About Pine Ridge Vineyards

In 1978, intrepid founders Gary and Nancy Andrus established Pine Ridge Vineyards on 47 acres of steep-walled valley within the Stags Leap District, and began cultivating Cabernet Sauvignon wines with concentrated expressions of the vineyards that created them. Today the winery owns estate vineyards in five premier Napa Valley appellations: Stags Leap District, Howell Mountain, Oakville, Rutherford, and Carneros. In addition to award-winning red wines, Pine Ridge again forged a new path with the unusual and delectable blend of Chenin Blanc + Viognier, which has since become one of its most beloved and popular wines.
