Ramulose Ridge Vineyards

Come for the wine... stay for the view!

Jim and Sandi developed an interest in winemaking after tinkering with kit wines in their basement in North Carolina almost twenty years ago. Sandi went on to attend U.C. Davis for enology when they relocated to Hong Kong for Jim's work. She took her classes online while they lived abroad. It only made sense to the Ramaker family to start a vineyard and winery in 2004 on their property at Smith Mountain Lake. Their family began what would be a nine year investment of time, money, and passion. In 2010, the old farmhouse had to be torn down to make room for an updated facility. August 1, 2013 was our long awaited opening day. We love this area and are devoted to making wine a pleasurable experience for each of our guests whether you are an oenophile or novice wine taster.
