What is a Sustainable Wine?

At Ram’s Gate Winery, we are very particular about how our 28-acre estate is treated by everyone who steps foot on her, which is why we take a holistic approach to prioritize our environmental impact when growing, harvesting, fermenting, bottling, and serving our wine. 

Our compassionate team of wine professionals is thrilled that sustainable wine is grabbing the attention of winemakers and enthusiasts throughout California and across the country. However, our organic approach to respecting the land beneath our feet—and in our case, our fingers—is about more than wine. It is why we are here. 

We have pledged to protect the environment, support social responsibility, maintain economic feasibility, and produce high-quality wines to share now and for years to come. 

How Does Ram’s Gate Prioritize Sustainable Wine Processes?

At Ram’s Gate, winemaking is a fluid pursuit of perfection, which means re-evaluating more than our winemaking processes, but thoughtfully focusing on the land and how we nurture and honor our vines, so we can keep this beautiful process in motion for our next generation—and theirs. 

Since 2015, we have carried the Certified Sustainable Vineyard designation administered by the Wine Institute and California Association of Winegrape Growers, and it is our sincere pleasure to make our communities proud by retaining it. 

As a result of our careful administration, Ram’s Gate is thrilled to advance the importance of environmental stewardship, conservation of natural resources, and socially equitable business practices to produce organic wine that can be enjoyed by all. 

At Ram’s Gate, We Are So Much More Than Wine. 

Make no mistake, Ram’s Gate Winery is dedicated to the environment—land, sea, and sky—and our pursuit of creating exceptional wine. We are also committed to providing an inclusive atmosphere where our wine tasting experiences resonate with residents and visitors alike. 

That means carefully evaluating each step of our processes, so we are thoughtfully operating from end-to-end. 

That includes our Certified Fish Friendly Farming®. 

This certification is designed to manage and restore fish and wildlife habitats while improving water quality in agricultural properties like ours. 

Along with our wine tasting opportunities, we offer a five-course wine and food pairing, incorporating our sustainable fishing practices, and a veranda package, where guests enjoy our estate wines paired perfectly with a cheese and charcuterie board.
