Ramona Valley Emerging Vineyards and Wineries—a New Blog

Come follow the development, growth and community of the new Ramona Valley AVA, an emerging wine destination.

When asked by the editor of the Patch to start a wine-blog for Ramona, I thought “how exciting” and reflected on how far Ramona has come in terms of vineyards, wineries, and award winning wines.   When Micole and I moved to Ramona in 2004, we knew we wanted to live an agricultural lifestyle, but were not sure exactly what that would be?  Horses, chickens....grapes?   We attended a meeting of the Ramona Valley Vineyard Association (RVVA), meeting new friends, and continue to attend each month, where we warmly welcome new members.

In this blog, I hope you will get to know and eventually love, the little valley we call home, and the friends we call family.   For the emergence of a new wine region really is like the coming together of a new family.   We share equipment, advice, and experiences, lending a hand at the installation of a new vineyard, and getting up early on the weekends to help at the harvest.  For a wine region to succeed, we must embrace each other, and work together, rather than compete, which is what makes the wine industry a community.  I encourage you to ask questions, get out, and become a part of the vineyards and tasting rooms of Ramona.

Thanks Karen - so exciting to follow and share all the great things going on with the local vineyards, wineries and vintners - it will be one more thing that makes Ramona special, and helps keep us rural! And...vineyards go great with horses, and make great firebreaks!

I have a question, do you do any shipping of wines, would be interested in your selections of flavors. And I do agree wine goes good with horses and great friends!!
