Hey everyone it’s time for another addition to the Winery Wednesday! This past weekend we had the amazing opportunity of visiting Ram’s Gate Winery in Sonoma. A couple of fellow wine bloggers and I headed to Ram’s Gate Sunday mid-morning to enjoy a food and wine tasting experience.
On the drive in we immediately noticed the amazing views and architecture of the winery. We were greeted by their friendly, welcoming staff and enjoyed a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
With the winery being about only a 30 minutes from both San Francisco and Napa it has the perfect location no matter where you might be traveling from. We began our tour sipping on wine walking through the property and out to the vineyards, then some behind the scenes in the wine tank room and barrel room.
In the main tasting room we saw groups of people laughing and enjoying great wine and also trying some delicious bites of food. This was definitely the place to be for locals and people traveling to wine country area to visit.
After we finish our tour we headed upstairs to their private library tasting room which was truly stunning, and as I mentioned on my Instagram stories I was ready to move into this gorgeous space!
We sat down at our large tasting table with a full menu list of what we would be trying and noticed the personal touch of all our names at the top of the menu. Love it!
The food and wine tasting we had was truly incredible and I have never had this experience at any winery before. It was a 5 course menu with a gourmet food selection perfectly paired with each corresponding wine. The way each food complimented the wine was delightful and not to mention delicious!
The tasting experience that we had was at a very reasonable $130 price per person for those who aren’t members of the winery (this does not include any tax/gratuity). If you are a member of Rams Gate, this experience is $68 per person. Being a member at Ram’s Gate truly has some great benefits including some amazing discounts, complimentary tastings and more! If you are looking for a one of a kind food and wine pairing, then Ram’s Gate is definitely the place to go.
One of my favorite wines we had this day was their 2014 Syrah which you can get here. It is from the Hyde Vineyards and aged 18 months in two-thirds new French oak.
I really enjoyed all of the wines we tasted that day and I admire the small production of only 13,000 cases per year. They really promote the quality of their wine versus the quantity.
I hope you enjoyed following along this wine adventure and you can add visiting Ram’s Gate to you list for your next trip to wine country!
