Ramey Wine Cellars was founded in 1996 by David Ramey and his wife Carla, after David had worked for almost two decades at such famous wineries as Matanzas Creek and Dominus. "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.
Located just off the town square in Healdsburg, the winery is perfectly placed to make use of the great Sonoma and Carneros terroir famous for the quality of their Chardonnays. Ramey's philosophy is to make hand-crafted wines made in an Old World tradition, coupled with New World innovation.

The 2019 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is youthfully energetic and coiled, taking some time to offer aromas of apricot, orange peel, beeswax, crème brûlée and flint. The medium-bodied palate is silky and seamless, balancing salty freshness with an intense core of fruit, finishing with tremendous persistence and nuance. It deserves another 2-3 years in bottle at minimum and will be long lived in the cellar. 588 cases were made. 96pts, Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate
