Come and experience a truly unique glimpse inside a small, family-owned working winery. During your 45-60 minute visit you will be a guided through a tour of our winery and sustainably farmed Kronos Vineyard followed by a tasting featuring a selection of current releases and vintages from our Library of aged Cabernet Sauvignon. Throughout the year tours will include vineyard updates and winemaking activities underway in our cellar. Something new awaits guests with each visit. We invite you to include Corison Winery in your plans the next time you are in the Napa Valley. "Corison Library Experience" ($55 per person): Includes a selection of four wines from the Corison Library specially chosen to showcase our unique terroir and Cathy's winemaking style. 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. We happily waive fee when you purchase wine: Corison Cabernet Tastings are waived with any purchase of $300 (per tasting). Tastings are complimentary for Corison Wine Club members based on Membership level. Tours & Tastings are offered at 10:00 am, 12:00 noon, 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. If your schedule requires a different start time, we are happy to work with you and accommodate special requests. We require a credit card to hold appointments for groups of 8 or more guests. Corison Winery is located just south of the town of St. Helena in the upper Napa Valley. We're on the west side of Highway 29, about a quarter mile north of Zinfandel Lane.
