This Saturday we are being hosted by Shannon Ridge Winery of Lake County. Founded in 2001, the Shannons purchased a magnificent mountain property about 35 miles north of the Napa county line. At altitudes of 2,100 to 2,400 feet above sea level these steep mountain ridges are cooled by steady winds off Clear Lake and from the higher peaks just north. The lean, rocky volcanic soils make the vines produce small berries with concentrated flavors. There is a stunning beauty to the ridge; to the south, you see the deep blue waters of Clear Lake sheltered by Mount Konocti and to the north, snow capped mountains loom above. Joining us to pour and discuss the wines is Mallerie Blackwell, Regional Sales Manager.
