Nestled in the front range of the Pacific coastal mountains of Southern California, the Ramona Valley has a rich history of vineyards and wine making, dating back to the early missions. Hot days and cool nights, influenced by the coastal marine layer and fog, contribute to conditions that produce quality wine grapes in the Ramona Valley. The area is a broad valley that is ringed by hills and mountains that isolate it from the surrounding areas. The valley has an average vineyard elevation of 1400 feet and an annual average rainfall of 16.5 inches.
Affirming that premium quality wines begin in the vineyard, and recognizing Ramona Valley as a premier wine region, the mission of the Ramona Valley Vineyard Association is to educate wine grape growers in the Ramona Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) for the successful, sustainable and profitable production, promotion and marketing of quality wine grapes to AVA winemakers.
