Pine Ridge is one of Napa Valley’s most prestigious wineries. Since 1978, it has turned out quality, small production wines that have garnered a worldwide following.
The Crimson Wine Group owns and operates a collection of small, boutique wineries that includes Napa (Pine Ridge Winery), Edna Valley (Chamisal Vineyards), and the Dundee Hills in Oregon’s Willamette Valley (Archery Summit), as well as vineyards in development in Washington State’s Columbia Valley. These wines are readily available in Dallas. Recently Eric Maczko, executive chef at Pine Ridge, came to town to talk about wine and food. I took the opportunity to meet the Culinary Institute of America graduate and Certified Sommelier at Rise No. 1 in Inwood Village to discuss pairing wine and food.
