    • 100% Wind Powered Winery

      • 100% Wind Turbine
        • Turbine

          In July 2017, Ryder Estate Vineyards erected a huge wind turbine at our winery located four miles south of the town of Greenfield in Monterey County. This renewable energy source stands tall above the local countryside with blades that reach 396 feet into the sky. It generates 100% of the power needed to run the winery and bottling operations, plus power an additional 125 homes. It is the ideal power source to utilize the inexhaustible winds of the Salinas Valley and is more effective than solar as wind turbines generate electricity at night and don’t lose efficiency due to dust.
