About First Ridge
WE APOLOGISE BUT DUE TO THE DEVASTATING DROUGHTS IN THE MUDGEE REGION, FIRST RIDGE HAS BEEN UNABLE TO PRODUCE ANY WINES THIS YEAR, AND WE DO NOT HAVE ANY WINES CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. WE HOPE THAT 2021 WILL BE KINDER TO THEM AND WE WILL ONCE AGAIN HAVE WINES TO SELL NEXT YEAR.
First Ridge is dedicated to growing and producing the finest Italian varietals in the region. Wines to be shared and enjoyed with abundant food, friends and fiery conversation, not unlike a vibrant Italian table.
A collaboration between owners John and Helen Nicholas, and veteran viticulturist Colin Millot, First Ridge Wines are an expression of their adoration of the region, the vineyard and the suitability of these Italian varieties to it. Located just six kilometres from the beautiful town of Mudgee; the vineyard sits up to 580 metres above sea level overlooking the Cudgegong river and valley below and has been producing premium Italian varietal grapes for over eighteen years…..but who is counting? Planted on ancient rocky ridges in shallow top soil over quartzite, shale, silt rock and granite, their Italian varietals find perfect balance with low yields and intense flavour development.
