In 1991 Mike Dragutsky was touched by the dream to make great wine and founded Cornerstone Cellars.
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:
Cornerstone Cellars wines are the personal vision of Michael Dragutsky and our winemakers. The symbiosis of their personalities are realized in our wines. We make what we believe in.
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.
Our wines all express our vision of the 3 V's: vineyard, vintage and variety.
