About the winery
Cathy Corison produces three Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons, each hand-crafted without compromise from benchland vineyards between Rutherford and St. Helena. Exhibiting both power and elegance, her wines speak of place, are made to grace the table and enjoy a long, distinguished life.; Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the single-vineyard estate wine. At almost 40 years of age, the Kronos Vineyard is one of the last old Cabernet vineyards in the Napa Valley, producing wines of amazing power and elegance.

We offer two levels of tastings designed to match our guests' wine interests and preferences:

"Corison Library Experience" ($65 per person): Our most popular tasting, the Library Experience features current releases plus select older vintages from Cathy’s extensive Cabernet Library for a total of six wines. The selection changes often with vintages specially chosen to showcase both our signature Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and our Estate wine, Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This offering is sure to delight the fine wine connoisseur or any guest wanting to gain a deeper understanding of the nuances of terroir, vintage and bottle development.
