The “Mountain Collection” features the top three cabernet sauvignons, pinot noirs and chardonnays
from the world-renowned wine region as selected by Master Sommelier David Glancy

A rare collection of nine limited-release wines from the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA will be released this fall. The Mountain Collection, which includes many collector’s edition wines that are usually only available by select allocation, will be available for purchase from October 1 to November 15, 2019. This is the first time wines of this caliber and prestige will be available to the public as an entire collection. The collection includes three bottles of cabernet sauvignon, three bottles of pinot noir and three bottles of chardonnay. The wines were hand-selected by Master Sommelier David Glancy, Founder of the San Francisco Wine School, to represent the top wines of the AVA. As a certified French Wine Scholar, Italian Wine Professional and Certified Specialist of Spirits, David Glancy is one of only twelve people in the world to hold a Master Sommelier diploma and a Certified Wine Educator credential. Additionally, Glancy created the California Wine Appellation Specialist credential, a professional credential entirely dedicated to California wine. “The Mountain Collection is a highly sought-after wine set,”; said David Amadia, President at Ridge Vineyards and Vice President of the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association. “It is an exclusive collection that allows wine lovers to experience the entire Santa Cruz Mountains AVA in one complete set. Each bottle unveils the unique terroir and mountain minerality that makes the Santa Cruz Mountains an iconic region.”
