Fay and Kathy Wheeler, and Bob and Bell Ramsey founded Stonehaus Winery in 1991. Eventually the Ramsey family purchased Stonehaus. Bob is the President of Stonehaus and Bell is the General Manager. Their son, Rob, is in charge of marketing and public relations. Kim Ramsey Wheeler, their daughter, is the assistant general manager and accountant.

Stonehaus WineryJan Nix, an enthusiastic winemaker, has worked at Stonehaus since 1993. Jan began in the tasting room however; the winemaker, Fay Wheeler, mentored Jan. She became the winemaker while holding a second 40-hour a week career job. Jan is thrilled to be working with the Ramsey family who are almost like family to her. Jan looks at wine as a living product and you can’t press delete if you make an error.

The Stonehaus Winery successfully produces wine using 79 polyethylene tanks and 7 stainless steel tanks. A column filtration system is used. Wine production is between 12,000 and 15,000 cases. Kim is designing a computer tracking system for the wines. Jan noted that keeping track of wine at a winery is difficult because the wine is constantly moving from one location to another.
