Ramey Wines

Ramey takes its name from esteemed wine genius David Ramey, a man who almost singlehandedly revolutionized Californian winemaking. It seems like every varietal he touches turns to gold, and we’re not talking about the color of his exceptional Chardonnays. Whether your compass points toward Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah, there’s a bottle of Ramey with your name on it somewhere out there. The winery’s success is a result of many positive factors. Being able to combine Old World lessons with innovative New World ideas is a skill not all winemakers possess. Couple that with the family’s seemingly endless devotion to classically-styled, beautiful wines, and you have a recipe for success. If you have the patience to wait several years, your reward will be a wine you’ll remember forever.

The bouquet is deep, complex and classy, offering up scents of pear, golden delicious apple, hazelnut, complex minerality, gently musky floral tones, orange zest and a refined foundation of buttery oak.
