As our flagship wine, FORTIS Cabernet Sauvignon represents the finest blocks of our estate vineyards.
Since our founding in 1978, Pine Ridge Vineyards has become known for elegant Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the heart of Stags Leap District in Napa Valley.
Since then, the winery has acquired 160 acres across five Napa Valley appellations: Stags Leap District, Howell Mountain, Oakville, Rutherford, and Carneros. This exquisite variety of estates, farmed meticulously by a dedicated vineyard team, gives us the ability to produce Cabernet Sauvignon wines that honor their origins with concentrated terroir expression.
From our estate vineyards throughout five different appellations—Stags Leap District, Howell Mountain, Oakville, Rutherford, and Carneros—we produce Cabernet Sauvignons that express each site. Our vineyard team pays meticulous attention to detail, making sure that every decision encourages the personality of each winegrowing site to come through.
In 1995, we crafted this unusual and delectable blend as an experiment; since then, it has become one of our most beloved and popular wines.
