Our perception of the Ramona wine scene is that its rapidly growing and under-appreciated. There are about a dozen tasting rooms and probably twice that many “boutique” wineries.

Lady of the vine
Coyotes live in San Diego County and in abundance in our area. The coyote captured the essence of the property we planted our grapes on, even from the very first day when I saw him perched on a rock pile yapping at the moon. They sing to each other every night, they entertain us during the day as we watch for them on the roads and in the vineyards. We know when our grapes are ripe because they help themselves. In return, they keep our ever-growing rodent population in their sights. The coyote was chosen for our wine label because he lives with us, and is a part of daily lives. The beautiful statue that stands in the center of our vineyard we call “Lady of the Grapes”. She looks toward a lake that was created to hold recycled Ramona water. The lake is part of the Ramona Grasslands and is home to many water loving birds. We are fortunate to have such a beautiful view, and to live among golden eagles, owls and so many other birds. Lady of the Grapes is holding a cluster of grapes in the hope that people can harvest the fruit of nature. She stands on a pile of rocks to reminds us that we must plant our grapes with the blessing of Mother Nature, and hopefully we can capture in our wines the beauty and joy of life.

We are approximately 1000 feet higher than most of suburban San Diego and Orange County. Most visitors have different expectations of the climate when Continue Reading
