Honrama Cellars

This is a heart-warming story and acknowledgement of a father lost too early. Miriam Puentes and her husband, Juan Jose Puentes, founded Honrama Cellars for a courageous man who sought to make a better life for himself and his family. Honorio Ramirez-Mata came to the United States from Mexico as a young man with hope in his heart and a dream that his family would have opportunity for the future. He and his wife worked in the fields of Napa Valley for many years tending to vineyards. A very loyal and hard worker, Honorio eventually worked his way out of the fields and into the cellar as foreman for Caymus Vineyards.

He held that position passionately until his untimely death, leaving his dream of owning a winery unfulfilled. Miriam, Honorio's eldest daughter knew how important that dream was and on February 14, 2011 she and her husband opened Honrama Cellars in honor of her father.

"The journey of every wine begins in the vineyard, with the grape. The beauty of every wine is crafted from the souls and hands of those who tend the vineyards, pick the grapes, and cultivate the nectar. Just as every family is crafted from the souls and hands of those who recognize opportunity, take risks, work from dawn to dusk, and share their wisdom". ~The Puentes Family
