We craft wine that combines the spirit of California with the restrained, classic elegance of wine from Northern and Central Italy. The unique location of our Estate Vineyard in Creston, CA allows us to grow specifically selected Italian varietals in a style atypical of the Paso Robles AVA.
Food and wine have always been intrinsically linked in the Italian culture: one simply does not go without the other. Our wines feature the mid-palate complexity and slight pepperyness that you want in a food-friendly wine, with the high acid and balanced tannins that serve as palate cleansers between bites.
Our goal at August Ridge isn’t to make “focal point wine” to be cellared and saved. We make wine that is already thoughtfully aged, ready to be opened as you gather for a meal, surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones.
