Lance has a good story to tell. The wine is very good. The story is good too. The storytelling needs some work. The customer experience is a bit unusual with quite a lot of put downs if you mispronounce Italian words or don’t know much...More

Our tasting at Jurassic Ridge Winery, was conducted by its colorful geologist/neurologist “founder, viticulturist, winemaker, cellar door pourer, sales manager, tractor driver and odd-job man,” Lance Blumhardt. The vines of Jurassic Ridge are planted atop 155 million-year-old rock formations which gradually break down, giving the...More
