Ramona Valley Vineyards

Wine Tasting in the Heart of San Diego County

With over 30 wineries to enjoy, you can spend a weekend wine tasting right here in San Diego!

The Ramona Valley and Highland Valley are two of the youngest wine regions in California. Our first generation winemakers have honed their craft following California's leaders in the industry. You can meet the owners and winemakers at over 30 of our one-of-a-kind tasting rooms. Visit their homes, their patios and their winemaking spaces in the heart of San Diego County to see what goes on up-close and personal.

New to the business does not mean unrecognized. Ramona and Highland Valley wineries have won gold, double gold and best of show in wine competitions throughout the United States, measured against the best wines from around the world by judges with an impeccable pedigree. We have the wines you know you love and many new varietals that you may have never tried.

Ramona's natural advantages (soil, sunshine, altitude, and climate) have been leveraged to grow wonderful grapes. Our grape growers work hand-in-glove with the winemakers to pick every grape at the height of its ripeness and maturity. “From Great Vines Come Great Wines” is more than a slogan, it is our promise to you, our visitors.

Pamo Valley Vineyards

The first “Woman-Owned” Winery and Winemaker in San Diego County

Wine IS sexy! Especially in America, wine has always been associated with special occasions. If we want to impress someone with a nice dinner, or establish a romantic ambiance for that special “someone,” we typically include a bottle of nice wine to emphasize the importance of the occasion.

At Pamo Valley Winery, we are very passionate about making premium wines that are pleasing to the palate. We believe that wine is feminine by its very nature. Wine is a gift from Mother Nature. When crafted by capable human hands, and well made, it is a joy.

Our winemaking philosophy at Pamo Valley Winery is to keep the wines approachable and enjoyable by a broad spectrum of the wine drinking public.

We carefully craft our wines to be fruit forward and soft on the finish – no big, tannic bombs out of our winery! We hope that you feel the passion that went into our wines when you drink them. Pour some of our passion tonight – pour Pamo Valley Wines!

Ramona Valley AVA

Our original Syrah vineyard established in 2000 was planted overlooking the Pamo Valley. Hence the winery name. In 2007 the winery relocated 4 miles further to a lush mountain side location on Black Canyon Road in Ramona.

Phase 1 of our Black Canyon vineyard was planted in June 2008 with varietals including Orange Muscat, Viogner, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon. In July 2010 we doubled in size by adding Phase 2 planted in Sangiovese. Also on Black Canyon Road, a quarter mile down the road at our family homestead, Serendipity Ranch, we grow Syrah and Tempranillo, planted in 2007. In 2014 Malbec and Viognier were planted. The Viognier was planted for our daughter Ella Mae (Named after her great grandmother Ellie Mae Whitcomb). Born May 7th, 2013, Ella has already begun learning how to work in the vineyards. With an addiction of planting more grapes, we added another plot of Sangiovese vines in 2016. Our Tempranillo was badly injured in the 2007 Cedar fires and never really produced many grapes. Therefore, we replanted these with Sangiovese.

In order to sustain our inventory, we also purchase grapes from local, quality growers.

Our winery produces an array of handmade, premium award winning, small production wines including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Primitivo, Tempranillo, Petite Sirah, Barbera, Viognier, Orange Muscat and many blends all coming from the Ramona AVA. We have enjoyed exceptional quality harvests.

Pamo Valley Winery is a licensed and bonded wholesale winery that markets its limited production wines through our tasting room and wine club. You may see some of our wines at select local restaurants and at special events. Our wines are produced entirely by hand, “the old fashioned way”. We produce our wines with locally grown grapes.

San Diego's North County is among the finest varietal grape-growing regions in the western United States. The region boasts a variety of vineyards, from larger wineries that feature guided tours and full gift shops to small family-run places, where visitors can elbow up to the oak bar to taste a fume blanc and petite sirah, and get a "tour" by simply turning around and glancing at huge tanks, vats and machinery just behind them.

Right in San Diego's Back Yard

Most wineries are located off Interstate 15, approximately a 45-minute to an hour's drive north of downtown San Diego, yet seemingly a world away. Some vineyards stand atop hills and provide sweeping views of the valley, while others are set off winding dirt roads. San Diego's wineries are one of the area's best-kept secrets.
