Ritchie Creek Vineyard
A boutique producer of estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Blaufrankisch. Located at the top of Spring Mountain in the Napa Valley, 800 cases of estate wines are produced from the 8-acre vineyard planted in 1967 at 2,000 feet above sea level.
Pete Minor acquired the 40-acre property in 1966, began planting the following year, and established the winery in 1974 which was named after the Ritchie Creek which starts on the property and flows to the Napa Valley floor. Minor is both the vineyard manager and winemaker.
Wines are sold by the case. Download the order form on the website.
