Raul Ramirez Wine Club Events are always open to new guest, View Upcoming Events!
Rural in nature, sustainable in farming practices and including an agricultural preserve known as the Citrus/Vineyard zone, the Temecula Valley is widely recognized as the ‘jewel’ of Riverside County. We are centrally located just east of the I-15 fwy, and are within an hours drive from San Diego, Orange County or the Palm Springs area.
RAUL RAMIREZ BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS at Rancho Vista Las Estrellas, in the heart of Temecula Wine Country, are planted 32 acres of viñedos (vineyards) of Spanish grapes: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Cariñena, Monastrell, Graciano, Mencía; and Albariño, Verdejo, Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Xarel.lo and Parellada. They are hand-farmed using some of the most sustainable practices in the industry.
Verdejo Wine Grapes
Is an uncommon, light-bodied white wine that grows almost exclusively in Spain. The wine is an outstanding alternative to wines like Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio, with surprising changes in flavors coming with age. Find out more about Verdejo, where it grows, what it tastes like, and excellent food pairings.
Macabeo (Viura) Wine Grapes
The most important white grape of Rioja where wines evolve over 10 or more years. In Catalonia, Viura is called Macabeo and is the primary blending grape in Cava sparkling wines.
Garnacha Blanca Wine Grapes
Grenache Blanc ( also know as Garnacha Blanca) is a full-bodied white wine that originated in northern Spain. Since being planted in the United States, single-varietal Grenache Blanc wines continue to grow in popularity where it’s loved for its intense flavors, higher alcohol content, and plush style (when aged in oak) similar to Chardonnay.
Albariño Wine Grapes
Albariño wine (“alba-reen-yo”) is a delightfully refreshing coastal white that grows on the Iberian Peninsula. It’s loved for its rich stone fruit flavors, a hint of salinity, and zippy acidity.
Xarel.lo Wine Grapes
One of the three main grapes used in the production of sparkling Cava (along with Parellada and Macabeo). Xarel-lo is noted to complement the richness of Macabeo (aka Viura) with high acidity.
Tempranillo Wine Grapes
Tempranillo is the great red grape of Spain, producing a variety of wine styles in regions around the country. Tempranillo wine typically features medium acidity, medium tannins and dark red color. Young, unoaked versions will be pleasantly fruity, with flavors of red fruits and jam.
Garnacha Wine Grapes
Would it surprise you to know that Grenache is responsible for some of the most delicious and expensive wine in the world? From exalted regions like Châteauneuf-du-Pape to cult California wines, Grenache is just as important in the wine world as Cabernet Sauvignon.
Monastrell Wine Grapes
A deeply bold, smoky red wine found in abundance in Central Spain and Southern France (where it’s known as Mourvèdre). Monastrell is the “M” in the Rhône / GSM blend.
