Cornerstone Cellars was born out of a passion for great wines in 1991 when founders Drs. Michael Dragutsky and David Sloas crushed their first five tons of Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Today the founders of Cornerstone Cellars and have been joined by Managing Partner Craig Camp, Winemaker Jeff Keene, in the Napa Valley, and a group of Memphis based partners led by Hal Lewis and John Carrier. All share one goal: to make compelling, exciting wines that speak clearly of the vineyard, variety and vintage from which they are born. All of our wines receive minimal, gentle winemaking relying more on nature than technology as the path to making great wine. All come from organic or sustainably farmed vineyards. While our Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon remains the cornerstone of our portfolio, this year will see the premiere release of a very special wine. Named simply, "The Cornerstone" this wine represents the pinnacle of our vision of Napa Valley winemaking.

My friend and I did the Food and Wine pairing at Cornerstone. It was a delightful experience and we couldn't have asked for more. We were served a taste of wine before they came to take us to a private room where the pairing began. We spent over a hour with the young lady, who had been out sorting grapes... More

It is so nice to experience a winery that is small and doesn't participate in mass production. The rose is off the charts!

Martha, the Sommelier who helped us with our wine tasting was an absolute delight and made our trip beyond worth it by sharing with us all her knowledge and expertise. Delicious wines in a small, quiet, comfortable atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

Nice high-quality wines from choice properties in Napa Valley California and Willamette Valley Oregon. Located in downtown Yountville. Make reservations at 707-945-0388 is a must. Their Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain was my favorite... Excellent!!!

My group of six went to Cornerstone without a reservation. It was not busy, and we were promptly seated and began our tasting. However, we felt very rushed. Our educator, who said she was a sommelier, was ready to pour the next tasting before anyone had finished the previous one. She would barely describe the wines to us. One of... More

As club members, we stopped in during our visit this month. Since we had called and let them know we were coming, Chris greeted us, provided us with a cheese tray and led us through our tasting. Chris is exceptional. Her family has lived in the region for four generations. Her knowledge about the region, Yountville, the growing, harvesting and... More

It's a gem among the hundreds of wineries in Napa Valley. We're so fortunate we discovered it via our local wine shop in the mid-Atlantic. These are top notch wines and we are pretty picky. It is now one of our very best wineries that we will always seek out.

We really enjoyed the tastings offered and very impressed with how friendly and knowledgeable the staff was. We were not rushed and enjoyed visiting with Stephanie our congenial pourer. We liked the wine so much we ever joined the wine club with absolutely so pressure to do so. Best deal on a wine club we've found so far.Don't miss stopping... More

I ended up joining the club because the syrah and other wines were to die for. Excellent customer service too.
