WBW: Ridge Inspirations

Wbw-new May 13, 2009 is Wine Blogging Wednesday and this month’s  host Jeff at Good Grape prompts us to write about a California wine which inspired us, writing Thematically, this month is intended to be broad while acting as homage to Robert Mondavi, the 1-year anniversary of his passing on Saturday, May 16.

Because Mondavi was such an inspiration physically, spiritually and philosophically to so many – both in the industry and to consumers, while acting as the forefather of the modern California wine movement, I would like for WBW participants to revisit a California wine that they have enjoyed, or have a particular fond memory of, and tell a story.

Please go buy or pull from your stash, a bottle of whatever that California wine was that created a memorable chapter in your life, revisit the bottle, and share your story.

For me, the wine for today’s Wine Blogging Wednesday comes from Ridge. the winery where I worked in my early 20s and which shaped my palate as surely as working for Mr Peet! More to come on this post!

Please Comment! I'd love to hear from you!
