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.

Kronos and New Trellis 1.2021

In the Vineyard

The days grow longer and winter rains are washing 2020 away.  Our covercrop is seeded everywhere.  We’ve had a few nice, gentle rains and some warm days to spark germination and get the peas and fava beans growing. After a month of frosty nights, dormancy is nearly complete, and we’re set to start pruning on 25 January. Welcome 2021!

As the dust settled on harvest, we spent a couple months finishing the trellises on our two new Cabernet Sauvignon blocks, which are coming along nicely. Each single Cabernet bud grafted onto a St. George rootstock in May grew vigorously into a grapevine!  This year, in their “third leaf”, we expect to get some fruit, at least enough to make a little wine to get a feel for what these vines will do.

We also replaced the old trellises in Kronos and Sunbasket Vineyards. We are happy to report that these veterans are thriving.  Kronos Vineyard will celebrate 50 years in 2021!

Corison Cabernet Vertical

Verticals are so interesting! Taste how these three very different growing seasons express themselves in the glass. This set includes a bottle each of the 2015, 2016 annd 2017 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.  $15 flat-rate shipping is offered for all orders that include this vertical, going to states in the contiguous U.S. where we are permitted to ship (see our policies for a complete list) through 28 February, 2021.
