Al Scheid first saw untapped potential in Monterey County in 1972 when the wine region was in its infancy. What started as a grape growing operation that sold 100% of its production to other wineries today has evolved into a grapes-to-glass family business that crafts authentic and elegant wines.
Ryder Estate wines are crafted from their sustainably farmed estate vineyards on California’s golden Central Coast. The Central Coast is blessed with cool ocean air that blankets their vineyards in the early morning until the warm sun peaks through the clouds in the afternoon. This wonderful combination of sea, sunshine and soil makes perfect growing conditions for their grapes to develop intense flavours and elegant character that is true to each varietal.
Ryder Estate Pinot Noir is lush, silky and balanced. Black cherry and plum aromas lead into flavours of bright red cherry and raspberry with a hint of mocha and toasty oak.
Pairs deliciously with BBQ’d pulled pork, stuffed mushrooms and relaxing with friends after a successful high tide sunset surf
