where to find ridge montebello near whitegate inn

Asheville’s hot summer days are slowly giving way to the most beautiful time of year in our mountain town. The leaves are beginning to change colors, and painting the wondrous Blue Ridge Mountains is a magnificent palette of reds, oranges, yellows, and browns. 

Adventures in the surrounding forests are more contemplative as things begin their decline towards dormancy for the winter, and many migrating animals begin their trip south. 

In those quiet moments, there is nothing more meditative than pouring yourself a glass of Ridge Montebello in the courtyard of the White Gate Inn & Cottage.

Ridge Montebello

Vines high in California's Santa Cruz Mountains give birth to the beautiful Monte Bello grapes. The vineyard is only fifteen miles from the Pacific Ocean despite being at a high elevation. Monte Bello is a classic Bordeaux blend that dependably performs well. From Ridge Wine’s website:

“Each vintage is different, but year after year, Monte Bello proves to be a consistently outstanding wine with great structure, complexity, and balance. And, in terms of ageability, it has been known to lay down for several decades with elegance and ease.”
