Lambert Bridge

Lambert Bridge, a small family owned winery in Dry Creek Valley, produces very limited-production, completely hand-crafted wines using perfectly ripened clusters sorted down to individual berries.

-------------------------------------------------

Winemakers Jill Davis and Jennifer Higgins shepards Lambert Bridge grapes from the vine to the bottle using often time consuming processes with the goal of producing rich, balanced and complex Bordeaux styled blends and varietals.
Annual case production was reduced from 25,000 to only 8,500 cases of 13 different wines when the major focus became producing the highest quality wines available.
Completely hand-sorted fruit is very uncommon and, as you can imagine, wines produced this way are not inexpensive.
Drop-in visitors can partake of a Classic Tasting of five wines or a Signature Tasting of five small lot, exclusive wines. Be aware that tasting fees are not applied to any purchase you might make.
Lambert Bridge wines are only available at the winery, on the website or through their Liquid Assets Wine Club. Club members benefit in many ways including a reduced price on the reservations required, seated Barrel Room Food and Wine Pairing held on weekends.
A number of tasting options are available for groups of 8 to 20 including Food and Wine Pairing, Wine and Cheese Paring, Wine Blending Seminars and Make Your Own Pizza Class. Pizza classes are held in the Al Fresco Kitchen in the picnic garden and feature Mugnaini Wood-Fired Ovens.
Lambert Bridge winery dogs Bernie and GusFirst time visitors to Lambert Bridge almost always notice first how beautiful the setting is then how friendly the big winery dogs are. In the photo to the right Bernie and Gus relax in the tasting room on a hot day.
