Visit Ramulose Ridge Vineyards
Ramulose Ridge Vineyards started as a passion project almost 20 years ago for Jim and Sandi Ramaker. After their interest was peaked by creating kit wines in their basement, Sandi took classes in enology (winemaking). In 2004, they decided to start a vineyard and winery on their property. It took nine years to create what we now know as Ramulose Ridge Vineyards, and on August 1, 2013, they officially opened.
Enjoy the Unique Pairings
Ramulose Ridge Vineyards has three types of wines from which to choose: whites, reds, and sweets. Most of the wines available also have a cigar pairing. The cigars are all from Panacea and are available to purchase at the tasting room.
Make sure to check the calendar before your visit in case you’re able to attend any of the fun events in town! Ramulose Ridge Vineyards frequently attends local festivals, like the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival.
