A brief history
In 1991 Mike Dragutsky was touched by the dream to make great wine and founded Cornerstone Cellars.; Dragutsky began the drive to make wines at Cornerstone Cellars that are defined by their elegance and dedication to terroir. Today, Kari Auringer and Charles Thomas, our winemakers, continue to pursue this vision of balanced, elegantly powerful wines.; Vineyard, Vintage and Variety; "Excellence is never enough, we have to go beyond and establish an ever higher goal each vintage. Our goal is to craft wines that are not only exceptional, but memorable. Each of our wines expresses the essence of vineyard, variety and vintage, which combine each harvest to create something never to be exactly repeated."; What we believe:; We are not about statistics and points, terroir is terroir and every vineyard must find its own balance.; There is no finer place in the world to grow cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot than the Napa Valley. It is an honor to craft wine from such outstanding vineyards.; We make wines we believe in. We make wines we love to drink.; Our wines all express our vision of the 3 V's: vineyard, vintage and variety.; We invite you to taste our wines: In Yountville - 6505 Washington Street, on the backside of the Whistle Stop Center and just steps from The French Laundry, Bouchon, Ad Hoc, Bottega, Bistro Jeanty and Redd.
