About Our Winery
Larry and Margie Dino are the proprietors of Cuda Ridge Wines. Their passion for fine wines led them to Livermore Valley – a world-class wine region with wine roots dating back to the mid-1800s. Over the years, they were inspired to learn more about the craft and traditions of making wine and founded Cuda Ridge in 2007 with a vision for producing premium wines. Small lot, handcrafted, Bordeaux-style wines that bring out the wonderful terroir of Livermore Valley are their specialty.
Cuda Ridge’s current production is 2400 cases. Cuda Ridge Wines produces the following Bordeaux varietals: Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carménère, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. From time to time, winemaker, Larry Dino, will produce non-Bordeaux style wines which are designated under the Black label, these wines include Sangiovese, New-World style Cabernet Sauvignon, and an S&M blend. Each of the varietals produced is small lots ranging from 100 – 450 cases. Cuda Ridge does the extensive blending of the varietals and strives for lower alcohol wines with intense complexity and character, traditional of the Bordeaux style. Each vintage has won prestigious awards including Wine Enthusiast, San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, Orange County Fair, and Sunset International Wine Competition. Unique old-world style wines welcome you in each glass from Cuda Ridge. Enjoy!
