About the Winery

winery_100_6985_reducedOn a north facing hillside overlooking the Ramona Valley AVA sits Woof’n Rose Winery and its vineyards.  Stephen and Marilyn Kahle own and operate the vineyard and winery with help from three sons and their respective families.  The Kahles love of dogs, and rose bushes surrounding the winery, give a clue as to how aptly the winery is named.


Woof’n Rose makes all of its wines from Ramona Valley grapes, most estate grown on premises.  Annual production is 300 to 350 cases per year. The specialty is Cabernet Franc, but the small vineyards also include all of the other classic Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot, as well as Grenache Noir and Alicante Bouschet; the wines reflect these varietals and blends comprised of them.  When you visit Woof’n Rose Winery for tasting you will sit on an outdoor veranda, overlooking the vineyards and the Ramona Valley, and will chat directly with the owners who double as grower, winemaker, and marketer.


Woof’n Rose’s invitation to you is to enjoy the view, conversation, and

Please sip our wine in your quality time,

Time to smell the roses,

Time to kiss puppy  noses!
