PHILOSOPHY

Farming

"Grow what belongs here. Be Patient."
This simple premise summarizes everything we've learned, and guides us in everything we do — how we care for our land, how we farm, how we make wine and olive oil and the myriad other products from this magical place.

Winemaking

While dining at Babbo in New York in 1999, longtime customer and friend Chef Mario Batali offered Ridge a bottle of 1994 Paolo Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco — and changed our lives forever.
