In 1975 Mike started wine making as a hobby and after much success, decided to expand this hobby into what has become a bountiful vineyard and productive winery. Over the years, Recline Ridge has earned numerous awards in amateur wine competitions and now repeat the success on the world stage of wine making.

Through his years of experience, Mike has experimented with locally grown grapes such as Ortega, Optima, Siegerrebe, Madeleine Angevine, Madeleine Sylvanner, Agria and Foch, learning about the optimum conditions needed to grow these varieties, and refining the winemaking process to produce a flavourful and unique selection of wines. With that knowledge, their vineyard went into production.

Recline Ridge Vineyards and Winery extends over ten acres and hosts nine different varieties of grapes. In the spring of 1998, Recline Ridge Vineyards and Winery began construction of an expanded winery. This unique post & beam log building is 3,000 total square feet on three levels and houses both the winemaking facility, wine shop and tasting area. The winery looks over the vineyard framed by Tappen Mountain and the Tappen and Skimikin Valleys.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
