Cornerstone #NapaValley #Cabernet Sauvignon #recipe: Grilled New York Strip Steak with Salsa Verde
In Italy, salsa verde (literally, “green sauce”) is used to add zing and fresh flavor to all sorts of meats and seafood. Here, it adds a bright note to thick grilled steaks. Leftover salsa verde is...

Cornerstone #Corallina Syrah #Rosé #recipe: Moroccan Spiced Grilled Chicken Breasts
I’ve recently been cooking my way through some of the older recipe on Simply Recipes and came across this gem—Moroccan spiced grilled chicken breasts. It’s a winner! Boneless skinless chicken breasts are marinated in yogurt mixed with a Moroccan spice mix of cumin, paprika, and cinnamon, and then simply grilled. The yogurt helps tenderize the breasts and the marinade brings life to otherwise boring boneless skinless chicken. What I love about thi...

Cornerstone #Corallina Syrah #Rosé #recipe: Salmon Fried Rice
The best thing about making too much rice is that you have leftovers for fried rice, you know, the kind with some egg swirled in, chopped vegetables and a soy sauce based sauce. If you also happen to have some leftover cooked salmon (I know, it’s a stretch, but you might, right?) this salmon fried rice is one of the best possible things you could make with it. We grilled up some fresh salmon the other day and had just enough leftover to toss int...

Cornerstone #Corallina Syrah #Rosé #recipe: Sweet and Sticky Sriracha Drumsticks
Slightly sweet. Slightly sticky. Slightly spicy. Thoroughly irresistible. That's what we think of these Sriracha drumsticks. Make them.

"Review: 2014 Cornerstone Cellars Syrah Stepping Stone Corallina Rosé - California, Napa Valley
SRP: $25
Deep salmon colored. Bright red and white cherries on the nose, rose hips, cotton candy, add in some white pepper and basil. Juicy and ripe on the palate but a clean sense of acid. Tangy white cherries, wild strawberries, nectarine, add in some rose petals, cherry blossoms, hints of white pepper and sweet basil. Bright and clean but I like the creaminess and earthy-herbal notes. Not a saignée, this whole cluster pressed rosé is the best vintage I’ve tasted yet" http://buff.ly/1EJcxZg

This riff on traditional pasta salad gets an added layer of flavor from golden pearls of toasted couscous.

"Cornerstone Cellars 2013 Sauvignon blanc, Napa Valley ($30)

Always a crowd-pleaser, this wine’s pale lemon color belies a fruit bowl of flavors including ripe pear, peach and tropical fruits, with a squeeze of lemon on the finish. The winemaking team now includes Kari Auringer, who shows a gift for making sauvignon blanc wines of balance and flavor. She has been called a garagiste, making small lots of very fine wines." http://buff.ly/1LEPp3A
Sauvignon blanc is an all-weather wine. In the heat of the summer, its zesty, fruity character is a welcome refreshment. Come fall and winter, it is the go-to wine for

Cornerstone #Corallina Syrah #Rosé #recipe: "Sweet Chili Sesame Chicken" #food
I'm not one to dredge up the past, unless of course it involves food. I was never a very adventurous eater as a kid (can you say, supertaster?) and so, from age 5 to 25, anytime we went to Little Ollie's (one of the few Chinese food restaurants in the little town where I grew up), I rarely strayed from my favorite dish: sesame chicken. This was no ordinary sesame chicken, let me be clear. Little Ollie's version is not breaded or battered, but rat...

In 1991 Mike Dragutsky was touched by the dream to make great wine and founded Cornerstone Cellars. In 1979 Craig Camp gave up his career in journalism to become part of the story that flows from the vine to the glass. In 2008 they joined forces to intertwine their talents and vision and Cornerstone Cellars was reborn in the Napa Valley and Oregon's Willamette Valley. Today they are joined by winemakers Kari Auringer in the Napa Valley and Tony Rynders in Oregon.

In late 2007 Dragutsky and Camp began the drive to make wines at Cornerstone Cellars that are defined by their elegance, dedication to terroir, appropriate alcohol levels and that are crafted to enhance meals. Today they've recruited Auringer to join as our Napa Valley winemaker as they knew she shared their vision of balanced wines, driven by acidity and freshness. Today's Cornerstone Cellars style is inspired by Camp's European wine background, starting as an importer of Burgundy, Bordeaux then by three years working at wineries in Italy. This passion for balance combined with the entrepreneurial spirit of founder Dragutsky define the vision of Cornerstone Cellars as defined in their mission statement:

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."

In 2008, Cornerstone Oregon was born in the Willamette Valley as a collaboration between Cornerstone Napa's Craig Camp and renowned Oregon winemaker Tony Rynders. While longing to make pinot noir and chardonnay, Camp firmly believed that the Napa Valley was no place to make classically styled, elegant wines from these varieties. As a result a totally separate project was born as we believe it is more important where the vines put down roots than where we do.

What we believe:

Cornerstone Cellars wines are the combined personal vision of Dragutsky, Camp and our winemakers of what makes a wine great. The symbiosis of their personalities are realized in our wines.

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 both an honor to be able to craft wine from such outstanding fruit and it our responsibility to make each wine to the very best of our ability.

We make pinot and chardonnay in Oregon because we think it is a world class place to grow those varieties that the Napa Valley is not. It's more important where the vines put down roots than where the winemakers do.

We do not make wine for everyone. We make what we believe in, not what the mass market demands. We will not be a slave to the fashion of the moment, we make wines we love to drink. What makes a great wine does not change; it's not like having hemlines to go up and down according latest whim.

Our wines all express our vision of the 3 V's: vineyard, vintage and variety.

We are an atypical Napa Valley winery and we like it that way.

We are located across from the post office and are open seven days a week from 11am - 6pm. You are welcome to drop in or make an appointment by calling 707-945-0388 or emailing tastingroom@cornerstonecellars.com

We offer many exclusive experiences that can been booked in advance. You can review those options here

You may visit our neighbors for their views, but you'll visit Cornerstone because of our exceptional wines.

Inexpensive (for Napa) yet great wine! White Rocks is very good! I highly recommend this place. It should be your first stop! Then head to the rest of the tasting rooms.

What an amazing winery! I had the pleasure of meeting Craig Camp yesterday. If you get a chance, make sure to talk to him when (not if) you visit their tasting room. He really knows his stuff! I'm not a huge white wine lover, but their chardonnay is very tasty - buttery and still crisp.
