“California style with Italian elegance”
Combining the robust styling of the best California wines with the restrained classic elegance of wines from northern and central Italy, August Ridge produces distinctive Cal-Ital wines that emphasize the uniqueness of the Paso Robles region. Estate wines provide the winemaker with control from the vineyard to the bottle so they are the key to achieving the August Ridge goals of power and finesse. August Ridge has vineyards of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. These wines are crafted by hand using small open top fermenters, a mixture of new French and neutral oak barrels and a minimum of handling or disruption. Each wine is deliberately hand-made in small lots to bring out the uniqueness of the vineyard microclimates and diverse soil structures. As romantic (and labor intensive) as this may seem, John also maintains a full laboratory to take advantage of the latest developments in enology to ensure that August Ridge wines achieve quality by design not by accident.
