Sonoma is a big place. In fact few people realize just how huge it is, especially compared to the ‘other’ Valley. And the heart of Sonoma is the town of Healdsburg…that’s where you will find family owned Ramey Wine Cellars, and a darn good sized winery at that.

We sat down with Ramey owner David Ramey along with his daughter Claire and Sidebar winemaker Lydia Cummins to get a picture of how David built this business to be a very well known label.

Experiencing wine is all about keeping an open mind. We all love to find a new label we can turn our wine loving friends on to. The best part is learning about different wine producing areas….especially in the US. Scott Elliff has found Virginia specifically, an area next to the Shenandoh National Park, an excellent area to grow grapes and make wine. Scott is the owner of DuCard Vineyards located in Madison County, Virginia. We talked with Scott by phone last month and in that conversation, once again, learned to open our minds.
