Issue Forum: Chris Corley of Monticello Vineyards

Date(s): February 4, 2010
Time(s): 7:00pm
Location: Orientation Theater of the George Bush Presidential Library and Musuem

Chris Corley serves as the Winemaker and as a Vice President at Monticello Vineyards. Chris, who joined the company full-time in 1990 and has worked at the winery in wine production for twelve years, most recently as Assistant Winemaker, is responsible for all aspects of wine production and wine quality.

The Corley Family and their partners grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir on five small vineyard sites in the Oak Knoll, Yountville, Rutherford, and St. Helena appellations of Napa Valley. In order to produce quality grapes that yield wines consistent with their style, great care is taken in selecting the varieties, the clone, the vineyard spacing, and the trellis system to match the soil and microclimate of their vineyards and in managing their vineyards for low yields. These estate grown grapes are used to produce approximately 15,000 cases of wine, exclusively from the Napa Valley.
