AGATE RIDGE VINEYARD was founded by the Kinderman Family in 2002 with visions of family farming, land preservation and pursuing a passion for wine. Located on 126 acres featuring an iconic 105-year old farmhouse tasting room, the family carefully selected a southern-facing slope to plant 30 acres to 17 varietals. With spectacular mountain views, Agate Ridge hosts a variety of fun events including the music series, “Rockin at the Ridge,” “Bonfire Fridays,” vineyard dinners, open air art classes, and celebrations. See the website for a full list of winery events from March – November.
Taking pride in producing exclusively-estate wines, winemaker Matt Cates alongside the family have total creative control from vine to wine. The unique microclimate and volcanic soils provide the foundation for the caliber of fruit that allows Agate Ridge to have produced highly-esteemed, award-winning wine for nearly a decade. Several wines to have just medaled at the 2015 San Francisco Chronicle include a 2012 Viognier (Double Gold), 2013 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc( Gold), 2010 Black Sticky Dessert Wine (Gold) and a 2012 Sauvignon Blanc (Silver).
