Recline Ridge Vineyards & Winery

Owners Graydon and Maureen Ratzlaff describe Recline Ridge as their “lifestyle improvement project.” How fitting! Because it’s not only improving their lifestyle, it’s also improving the lifestyle of their guests!

Cool climates demand cool grapes. Recline’s winemaker, Jesse Steinley, is coaxing all kinds of deliciousness from the cooler climate stalwarts: Marachal Foch, Siegerrebe (zee-geh-RSY-buh), Optima, and Ortega. Picking a favourite wine is a little like picking your favourtie child, but if pressed, the Ratzlaff’s admit to a special foodness for their Siegerrebe served with spicy curry.
