River Ridge Winery, situated in a century old farm house, and nestled in the hills above the Mississippi River, is owned by Jerry Smith, winemaker, and his wife, Joannie. The hand tended French Hyrid and Vinifers grapes grown on the hills behind the winery, produce wines of the highest quality. Jerry purchased the 80 acre farm and began planting grapes in 1980. Joannie, ironically, began the Christmas tree and Yule Log Cabin the same year. They later met and married February of 1993. Work began refurbishing the old farm house to become the winery. The doors opened September 17, 1994. Every year brought a new project in the expansion of River Ridge. The new wine production building, The Fermentation Room Cafe, pavilion, two tiered patio with firepit, moving the Yule Log Cabin to the bigger cabin, opening the Little Log Cabin for overnight guests and planting the Vinifera vineyard were major steps in River Ridge growth. Keller Ford became General Manager and Assistant Winemaker in 2003. The River Ridge staff now consists on 15 wonderful, full and part-time employees and still growing. Wine production topped 4000 gallons. Our goal of producing the best wines our Missouri soils can grow is being obtained Read more »

  • I think OT had a thread in Berserkers all about pictures of vines and vineyards...tried to find one on here but came up short. There was some talk of Limerick Lane (has a nice ring to it) on here recently, I believe Mark has some of the wines. Just now I noticed a nice picture of some Limerick Lane Vineyard rows posted to Facebook by Adam of Sid... Read More

  • Hi Aline!Looks like you have Napa pretty much under control or at least have a lot of options. For Napa scenery, Newton Vineyard is awesome although it'll probably be a bit pricey, the wine is pretty good.Downtown Healdsburg has a bunch of tasting rooms, not quite Lompoc but easily walkable and lots of other shops and restaurants. There are a co... Read More

  • Since I canceled that Domaine Serene wine club yesterday and saved us around $550, Sandra gave her approval for me to use a few Total Wine $15 coupons that we recently received.  I didn't waste any time at all - I bought a bunch of stuff this morning!  My focus on today's shopping trip was French wine, both Red Burgundy and Red Bordeaux.  I was ...

  • As a recently displaced New Yorker, I speak for all of NYC when I say, "Nothing exists west of the Hudson River." ;)I'm drinking this guy tonight. Bought three bottles based on recommendations from this forum. Any advice as to how long I should decant? I actually don't have a lot of exposure to zinfandel or zin heavy blends. Just looked back thr... Read More

  • Well, the opera Salome was quite a performance.  We were in the first row, right behind the orchestra pit.  The conductor's head was at our level, perhaps 3 feet from me.  I've never been so close to a conductor while he led the orchestra.  That also put us very close to the stage of course, so we saw every detail but of course the opera was per...

  • After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive.  Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More

  • I used to think I just didn't like wine, but after finding one made from my FAVORITE grape on earth, the scuppernong/muscadine that happened to be made near where I lived, I fell into a snuggly affair with that one, the Duplin Hatteras Red and decided to try a few more.  So far, the only other wine I've tried and liked enough to purchase again i...

  • Graton Ridge Cellars Zinfandel Russian River Valley Bacigalupi Vineyard 2010

    Snoothrank:

    First whiff came out smokin' as in this had a heavy bit of smoke on the nose. After a 30 minute decant the smoke was gone and now there's just a bunch of really nice dark fruit, a touch of licorice, some mighty fine acidity and subtle fine grained tannins. Read More
