Remick Ridge Vineyards is the best kept secret in Sonoma Valley. Grapes grown to perfection for over twenty years. Consumed only by people who know good wine. Some secrets, and grapes, are worth talking about.
Tommy Smothers, owner of Remick Ridge Vineyards, is proud of the fine wines produced at his ranch in Kenwood, California.

“My grandfather, Ed Remick, and I looked for property together,” Tom explains. “We looked in Napa, we looked everywhere. When we looked at this place in the hills of Sonoma Valley, Grandpa stuck out a finger and said, ‘This is it! This is it!’”

Originally the winery was called Smothers Brothers, but I changed the name to Remick Ridge because when people heard Smothers Brothers wine, they thought something like Milton Berle Fine Wine or Larry, Curly and Mo Vineyards,” Tom explains.

Established in 1977, Remick Ridge is a highly regarded vineyard planted with 50 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaster, Richard Arrowood makes all of the wines exclusively from the grapes grown at Remick Ridge. About 500 cases are produced each year. The wine is 100% varietal, unfiltered and unfined.

Awards include a gold medal at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair for the ’91 Cabernet Sauvignon, a bronze for the ’90, and a silver for the ’89. The 1992 Merlot was rated a 91 by Anthony Dias Blue, noted wine critic of the San Jose Mercury News and Bon Appetit magazine.
San Francisco’s Bay Café, hosted by Joey Altman, produced a television show highlighting Tommy’s wines and his vineyards; the program won a prestigious James Beard Award in 2001. Other shows that have been produced at Remick Ridge Ranch are Julie Child, Good Morning America, Bill Bogg’s Corner Table, PBS’ Cooking with Harry, and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. The vineyards have even appeared in an episode of Seinfeld.

Feature articles have appeared in Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and People magazine.

In 1985, Tom built a tasting room in Kenwood on Highway 12, which now houses six small premium Sonoma Valley wineries and is called The Wine Room.

Tommy Smothers says, “Making wine is so close to show business. Wine like comedy, is subjective. Either people like your wine—or your songs, or your comedy—or they don’t. Each is a creative process and you’re only as good as your last effort.”
