Daily Wine 6/7/17:

Ramey – Chardonnay – Russian River Valley – 2002

  • Comprised of 100% Chardonnay from a collection of vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County in California.
  • David Ramey makes the wine and started 1996 by getting permission to “make a little Chardonnay on the side” at Dominus Winery.
  • In 1998, David left Dominus Winery for Rudd Estate and made the wine there.
  • In 2002, Ramey Wine Cellars finally went independent and started producing wine out of Healdsburg.
  • The Russian River Valley has the climate to ripen Chardonnay well and sits on a diverse benchland of soils dominated by Goldridge Loam.
  • Ramey’s philosophy is to harmonize Old World methods with New World innovations and respecting the land with sustainability.
  • The winery also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and a variety of single-vineyard Chardonnay wines.
  • Pair this with chicken, trout, and eggs benedict.
