Passion isn’t an easy word to define. At Ram’s Gate we’ve come up with our own definition. Here, we think of passion as the energy that comes from putting more of ourselves into everything we do, everything we love and everything that comes naturally to us.
Which is exactly how Jeff O’Neill, a third generation vintner, developed the vision for Ram’s Gate. Alongside good friends, Michael John, Peter Mullin and Paul Violich, they found an enchanting property in Sonoma right at the gateway to Sonoma and Napa wine country.
“When we found Ram’s Gate, each of us knew we’d also found the perfect location to develop special wines and special wine experiences. We had a desire to build a true original that would come to nurture some of the region’s best wines. A big part of that desire was creating a place for people to come and enjoy those wines in an elegant and relaxed environment. Accompanied by generous hosts, delicious, locally sourced foods and of course, great company.”
Passion is not a term we use lightly. But we do know when it comes to great wines, architecture, design, food and hospitality, Ram’s Gate is where we’ve brought those passions together.
