Chardonnay 'Rochioli Vineyard', Ramey Cellars

David Ramey spent his early career creating benchmark wines for such wineries as Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus and Rudd. With that impressive resume, David and his wife Carla founded Ramey Wine Cellars in 1996.

They have been producing critically acclaimed, award-winning wines ever since, committed to Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Syrah as their primary varietals.

Located amidst the natural charm of Healdsburg, Ramey Wine Cellars embodies the balance that is the essence of California wine:

  • Absolute attention to the tiniest detail, balanced by a willingness to trust nature’s sometimes unpredictable impulses.
  • A philosophy rooted in traditional methods combined with an eagerness to explore exciting innovations in the industry.
  • The belief that life is for living, wine is for sharing, and harmony is essential to both.
