Food Pairing Suggestions
Bubbles are one of the more versatile wines to pair with food. Kick off your happy hour with a sparkling wine aperitif - it works well with a range of appetizers from brie and Prosciutto to savory egg rolls. This fantastic sparkler will also pair beautifully with oysters, fried shrimp and Jamaican cuisine. We also love it with seared tuna and fried chicken! Try it with a dessert of fresh fruit for a lively finish to your meal.

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.
