Located within a few miles of the Pacific Ocean in the town of Annapolis at 1100 feet above sea level, Ridgetop Vineyard is Sojournís most coastal vineyard site. The maritime influence effectively moderates high temperatures during the summer and fall while its location on the eastern side of the first coastal ridge protects it from being engulfed by fog, enabling the vines to produce ripe, tropical fruit with ample acidity. Ridgetop is owned by Fred Schrader and Thomas Brown and is managed by rock star vineyard manager, Ulysses Valdez.
