We began Owl Ridge Wines to take advantage of the high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grown in Sonoma County. Winemaker Joe Otos uses 100% French oak and winemaking techniques that preserve the intensity of the fruit flavors. The resulting wines are big, but balanced.
About Owl RidgeWe have now reached the point where our wines have begun to achieve the recognition they deserve. Owl Ridge Wines was voted “Best New Winery” at the 2006 Wine Literary Awards Tasting. This is a significant honor because more than 80 wine writers voted in a secret ballot at a tasting that had 1000 wines.
We have also now won 18 gold medals in the last year at major competitions. This includes two “Best of Class” awards.
