Celia Ramsay, Kent's wife, was born in Los Angeles. Her family later moved to northern California where she attended middle and high school in Sunnyvale, just as it was on the cusp of becoming Silicon Valley. After high school she did some travel in the UK and Europe before coming home to California to do an apprenticeship in letterpress printing with a well-known Berkeley book artist. She then attended UC Berkeley where she majored in rhetoric.
Celia's responsibilities at the winery include accounting, out-of-state compliance, and working with the TTB on label approvals.
"Even though I know how to use a Smartphone, I'd still rather go dancing than watch television, and I find nothing more satisfying than singing with my friends next to a fire. We are here so briefly that missing a single opportunity to connect with people seems a crime. That's why we drink wine – it softens the hardness of the day, and loosens our tongues so that we may confide in a friend, share the days events with a spouse, or sparkle with a lover over a romantic dinner. This is why we a re alive – to be together"
Celia’s artistic fires burn ardently; she is a professional Contra Dance caller, and a vocalist, and her first CD was released in January 2011 (Celia's CD), and a second one just released in March 2012 (Celia's 2nd CD). She also enjoys teaching book arts and dance to kids, spinning yarn for living-history programs, and confesses to being a “knit-aholic”.
