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.

Sunbasket Vineyard Harvest at the Crack of Dawn - vines laden with grapes, and a gorgeous sunrise
Sunbasket Vineyard harvest at the crack of dawn

In The Vineyard

As we press our last lot, the dust is settling on the 2022 harvest. The grapes were tiny due to ongoing drought, so especially yummy with a high skin-to-juice ratio. We picked our first significant crops in our young blocks at Kronos and Sunbasket and are delighted with the results! Out in the vineyard we spread compost and seeded our covercrop to promote lively soils and nourish the vines. The vines get a big drink of water after picking to promote root growth while the weather is still warm and they are storing energy for their long winter nap. Colder weather will bring frost and the vines will go dormant. We’re doing our rain dance!

We just released the 2019 Helios Sunbasket Vineyard Cabernet Franc to our club, and while it is sold out in 750ml bottles, we do have magnums available here

This is a lovely time of year to visit Napa and enjoy warm autumn days while watching all the post-harvest activity!

Top 100 Wines of 2022

We are honored to have both the 2019 Corison St. Helena Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2019 Helios Sunbasket Vineyard Cabernet Franc on this list!  Joshua Greene calls the Cabernet Franc, “a supple pleasure… hard to resist” and says this of the Cabernet Sauvignon: “Warm and explosive in its energy, this wine carries an imprint of the benchland soils in the play of darkness and light, in the detailed tannins that make you crave another taste.”
