Yesterday morning, a 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck in Wine Country, its epicenter just south of Napa. The quake occurred on the West Napa fault and produced the largest Bay Area earthquake since 1989. Needless to say, we are still in shock. As the news has poured in over the last 24 hours, we grow increasingly grateful that our team made it through safely. Sadly, many homes and possessions sustained significant damage, and it will require some time and effort to restore all things to normalcy.

We are incredible grateful to say that Ram’s Gate Winery suffered very little destruction. We all felt desperate relief walking through the winery on Sunday morning and seeing that the hundreds of glass bottles and pyramids of barrels remained in place. Our hearts are with the Sonoma and Napa wineries for whom this was not the case.

On behalf of the entire Ram’s Gate Winery team, we’d like to extend our sincerest thanks to all those who have called, emailed and communicated via Social Media to inquire about our status. We are humbled and touched by your loyalty and will keep you posted with more updates as they come.

Cheers and Best Wishes,

Ram’s Gate Winery
