About Us

Becerra PhotographyThe Ramey Family, together with St. Innocent Winery, own and operate Zenith Vineyard.  We purchased the property in 2002 from Pat O’Connor, the founder of O’Connor Vineyards, as it was then known.  We owe a great debt of gratitude to Pat (and Patti who sadly passed away in 2002 before we could meet).  The O’Connors were great stewards of the land, and we strive to continue as grateful caretakers of this beautiful place.

Tim, by day, is a securities analyst covering the food and beverage sector, and manages the vineyard operations.   When we bought the vineyard nine years ago it had 60 acres under vine.  Under our management we have removed 35 acres of vines and planted 53 acres  so have 78 acres planted, 70 are in production.  

We are proud to be entrusted with such a lovely part of the earth and pledge to think of the long-term benefit of the land in everything we do.  Our goal is to help the vineyard achieve great balance and to provide “beautiful origins” for the fruit that becomes Zenith, St. Innocent and other great wines.

We strive for excellence in the vineyard, and while that goal is elusive, we are blessed with a wonderful site, the perfect climate for Pinot Noir, and willing and able bodies to help make it all happen. Cheers!
