Winemaker Notes

This Rose is different in the way that we use cabernet grapes instead of the traditional pinot noir or chardonnay variety. In this rosé you will enjoy a nice refreshing and crisp palate. You will pick up hints of strawberry and citrus fruits. – Juan Jose Puentes


“In this beautiful Rosé, we want you to experience its essence and simpleness. To our family, it means the significance of a lifestyle and what we wish upon our family and friends. Paula is the third of our three children therefore she is the princess in our household. This Rosé is a symbol of life: to reconstruct a new life, a new being… full of love, pride, success and spiritual tranquility, We are not only saying you should, we are saying you could.” – The Puentes Family

About the Winemaker

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. Miriam’s father, 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. A very loyal and hard worker, Honorio eventually worked his way out of the fields and into the cellar as foreman for Caymus Vineyards,  and the family moved and settled just north of St. Helena. Over the years working as Cellar Foreman, Miriam’s father was taught how to make his own wine by the owners of the vineyard. He began making his own wine and chose Miriam, his oldest daughter to work in his wine tasting room.  Then, sadly her father past away leaving behind so many unfulfilled plans and dreams for the future. After Honorio’s death, the Wagners at Caymus stepped up and helped Miriam’s family, ultimately supporting her through college. There, Miriam took wine and business marketing classes, which she uses today handling her own winery’s sales and marketing duties. Miriam later met her husband Juan Jose Puentes, whom she convinced to change career paths and who eventually got into the wine business. Throughout the years Juan made valuable connections with winemakers and vineyard managers across Napa Valley and learned the trade. He uses his relationships today to create wine for Honrama Cellars.
