Jeff O’Neill

Managing Owner

“It is a rare privilege to pursue in adult life your childhood dream.”

What would four friends who are passionate about wine, architecture, design and food do with prime real estate right at the gateway to the Sonoma Valley? Ram’s Gate is the answer.

Owner of O’Neill Vintners & Distillers and one of the industry’s most successful entrepreneurs, Ram’s Gate Owner Jeff has worked in wine for most of his life and is a former Chair of the California Wine Institute. Naturally charming and gracious with an impeccable eye for design, O’Neill is blessed with an eagle’s eye for detail and an instinctive flair for design, and he believes that the setting in which you enjoy exceptional wines should equal the quality of the wine in the glass.

Those traits, combined with his passion for the very best in wine, food and hospitality, make him the perfect individual to realize every single aspect of this project, from the ground up.
