Photos from Shake Ridge
Ann Kraemer, and the Kraemer family hosted a tour and tasting of Shake Ridge Vineyard in Amador County yesterday. The site grows several-tens of acres of primarily red varieties planted on a mix of rootstocks, and a host of training styles. It’s a beautiful site.
The event began with pork belly sliders and a walk from the entrance of the vineyard almost to the far end, stopping under shaded groves along the way to taste wines. Each of the wineries that use Shake Ridge fruit were represented. After the walk, dinner was served with the opportunity to re-taste the wines, and talk more with the winemakers.
Here are photos from the event.
