About

Ribbon Ridge is a very regular spur of ocean sediment uplift off the northwest end of the Chehalem Mountains, containing a relatively uniform 5 1/4 square miles (3,350 acres) of land. Approximately 500 acres are currently planted on the ridge, within 20 vineyards.

The AVA is distinguished by uniform, unique ocean sedimentary soils and a geography that is protected climatically by the larger landmasses surrounding it. Paucity of aquifers forces most vineyards to be dry farmed.

Ribbon Ridge is contained within the larger Chehalem Mountains AVA.

Another eerie sky at Domaine Divio tasting room, closed today.
Our thoughts go to all the people affected by the fires.
We are very appreciative of firefighters and first responders who work so hard to keep our communities safe.
We should be open on Thursday and look forward to hosting you again soon.
Please contact us to confirm our opening status as we will continue to watch closely air quality to allow for good tasting conditions.

We have just released our 2018 Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir and it is delicious!
It has serious dark red color and depth, the nose is typical of Ribbon Ridge with floral notes of fresh cherry blossom, mineral notes, cassis and pitted cherry. The flavors of orange and grapefruit zest shows upfront in the mouth, followed by blackberry, peppery fresh berries, fine grained tannins on and elevated finish of chocolate dipped strawberries.
Come and visit us at Domaine Divio to taste it. We are open 7 days a week; 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.
