About the vineyard: On a sequestered and beautiful Amador County ranch, the Shake Ridge Vineyard is the result of decades of experience, serious passion, and good old-fashioned hard work. Once a prominent viticulturist for some of Napa's most renowned vineyards, Ann Kraemer turned to the mountains when it was time to plant her own. The 46-acre vineyard straddles a ridgeway up above 1,700 feet and is home to some of the finest grapes we've ever seen.
