Ramey Wine Cellars:
David Ramey started his career in wine with little more than a degree in enology and a dream.

David Ramey started his career in wine with little more than a degree in enology and a dream. Then, after nearly two decades of creating benchmark wines for such California wineries as Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus and Rudd, David Ramey and his wife Carla founded Ramey Wine Cellars in 1996. “Owning one’s own winery is the dream of every winemaker,” David says, looking back on the path that led him to build his own. It took time, planning and a profound understanding of how best to bring together all the elements—from the grapes, to the winery materials, and a top-notch team of professionals—to make it all work. Ramey Wine Cellars is located off the town square in the quaint Sonoma County town of Healdsburg. It is a sleek, efficient, no-frills work space dedicated exclusively to making the highest quality wines possible. “In our own winery, we’re not distracted, as I had been, by the ongoing and changing needs of an employer,” David notes. “At Ramey Wine Cellars, we try to foster a team environment where everybody feels empowered to contribute and make a difference in both winery operations and the wine itself. My hope is to create an atmosphere of great opportunity for all.” The winery produces authentic, hand-crafted wines made in an Old World tradition--coupled with New World innovation and California terroir. Owned exclusively by David and his wife Carla, grapes are sourced from vineyards with which David has worked for many years. Their next project will be to purchase land and develop their own vineyards. Consistently rated among the best wines in California, the winery remains committed to Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Syrah as its primary varietals. Winery tastings are available by appointment. Tasting Room We are open for tastings by appointment Monday through Saturday (excluding holidays). We offer a hosted tasting in a seated environment so that you can relax and truly appreciate the wines. Read less

Bright nose of tart green apple, some vanilla. Green apple very up front on entry along with some tropical fruit and melon flavor. A bit of oaky bitteriness. Nice tart acid. A back-of-the-palate sensation that makes me think clove—although, it certainly does not taste like clove.

Clean, fresh and lively, with juicy pear, citrus and green apple flavors, shaded by spicy, toasty oak, all presented in a smooth, seamless style that keeps the fruit at the forefront. Drink now through 2019. 1,212 cases made.

There are 1,280 cases of the 2012 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard. It reveals a slight greenish hue to the light straw color as well as copious notes of tangerine oil, orange marmalade, pineapple and citrus. With steely acidity, and a full-bodied, texture, heady finish, it should drink well for 6–7 years.
