100% Arizona Grown Fine Wines
Laramita Cellars is nestled in the foothills of the Dos Cabezas mountains in the Willcox AVA of Southeastern Arizona.
Our wines reflect a deep respect for
Old World wine making traditions while incorporating the best modern wine making techniques.
We are Laramita Cellars.
But where does it come from?
"La Ramita" expressed as two words means "the twig" in Spanish, but as one word it comes from Arizona's first port of entry from Mexico, the town of Laramita. This town now exists only as a concrete place marker near the city of Douglas,
but it has found new life in this winery.
Owner, Laramita Cellars
All of our wines are made from
100% Arizona grown grapes.
Our winery is located on the property of Chiricahua Ranch Vineyards in the
Willcox AVA in Cochise County and we presently grow almost two dozen varieties. Our grapes are grown as sustainably as possible and we incorporate biodynamic solutions when appropriate.
Greg Gonnerman, owner of Laramita Cellars, likes to reminisce while walking among the vineyard rows of his winery property in Willcox.
In 2013, Laramita Cellars at Chiracahua Ranch Vineyards, nestled in the foothills of the Dos Cabezas Mountains, became a reality born of years of homemade winemaking and borrowing spare patches of land here and there to grow grape vines anywhere people would let him. “I planted in my backyard and at friend’s houses, pretty much anywhere there was room. People kept asking me when I was going to do this professionally” laughs Gonnerman.
Laramita Cellars loves nothing more than sharing our wines! Whether it is a wine festival, exclusive fine restaurant wine dinner or a private winemaker event, we enjoy entertaining and engaging with you while you sip, savor and learn more about Arizona wines.
Crush 2023 is underway at CRV and Laramita Cellars is set to release our latest vintages in the near future.
