Winegrower Cathy Corison produces artisanal, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks of place, sourcing great benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena. We invite you to experience a unique glimpse inside a small, family-owned working winery the next time you are in the Napa Valley.
Harvest is drawing to a close as the days get shorter and the nights turn cold. In the cellar we will finish pressing the new wines, and put them down to barrels to undergo their secondary malolactic fermentation. Out in the vineyard, the vines are slowing down, storing energy for their long winter nap. We will spread compost and seed the cover crop to nurture these vines, which have already been graced with the first early rains.
We are just releasing the nearly sold-out 2015 Helios Sunbasket Vineyard Cabernet Franc. Most years this tiny lot is available only to our wine club. Please let us know if you are interested in becoming a member and receiving an allocation.
Cathy Corison was in Chicago in May, honored to be a finalist for the James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Wine, Beer, or Spirits Professional. Nearly half of the James Beard Foundation Award finalists were women this year! That’s a big deal.
As Thanksgiving approaches, we are pleased to offer a special medley of our 2015 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and our 2016 Corazón Anderson Valley Gewürztraminer for you to share with your family and friends. Order by November 11th to ensure timely delivery.
With deep gratitude from our winery family to you and yours, we hope you have a joyous holiday!
