August Ridge wines are grown and crafted to compliment but not overpower foods. The whites are crisp and clean; the reds robust and strongly balanced. Serve the whites chilled and allow them to slowly warm in order to bring out the subtle complexities. The reds are unfiltered and will be best served 30 minutes after decanting.  Salute per cento anni!
