A little bit about our history…
Mahogany Mountain Vineyard and Winery is a small, family-owned and operated winery specializing in limited production of handcrafted fine wines from our estate-grown Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvedre, Muscat Canelli, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Zinfandel. Our vineyards are located on 43 acres in a picturesque and sunny high valley (1,500 ft. elevation) in Ramona, California surrounded by mountains. Our microclimate is perfect for growing red wine grapes and dry-farming: hot long summer days and cool nights produce beautifully ripe fruits with deep intense flavors.
Our wine-making techniques include hand-picked and organically grown grapes, small bin fermentation, hand punch-down of caps, hand press and aging in small oak barrels. We take great pride in every aspect of grape-growing and wine-making to ensure the quality of our handcrafted estate wines.
In 1996, we started making wine on premises using locally grown grapes.
In 1997, we planted our own vineyards with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvedre and Zinfandel varietals.
In October 2003, the Cedar Fire ravaged the Ramona Valley area; our vineyards sustained minor damage. In the aftermath of the fire, extensive work was done in improving the vineyards and winery.
In 2004, we expanded our vineyards to add Syrah to our collection of red wine varietals.
Since then, we expanded our vineyard to add Barbera, Muscat Cannelli and Petit Verdot to our collection of estate-grown grapes.
