Owner description: 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 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.

Located in Yountville not far from a few other tasting rooms all open until 7:00pm it was a great place to wind down the day. I was not able to get through the whole tasting before they had to close, but they invited me to come back the next day at no extra charge. These guys understand wine and customer service. I did come back and had a great tasting experience. They have a good variety of wines here and the tasting fee was reasonable. If you have dinner reservations at one of the great restaurants in Yountville or nearby this would be a good spot to stop by first.

After driving between some of the major wineries for tastings it was nice to stroll Yountville's main street and hit a few casual unpretentious tastings on foot. Cornerstone was a joy mostly due to our guide/server. He made it comfortable and enjoyable.

I am a fan of Cornerstone wine esp. Howell Mtn. cab. Katrina was a great hostess. The room is bright and cheerful and a wonderful selection of wines were offered. Besides picking up my spring shipment, we got 6 more bottles.

Cellars is a correct name for this...it's not really a winery, as they buy their grapes (maybe even their wines and simply label it), from other parts of the U.S. There are too many great wineries and vineyards in the area to waste much time here...although the host was wonderful (Robert), we enjoyed the tastings, but won't spend $80 a bottle on the one wine that stood out...when it's not from the immediate area...seems the owning partners simply want to try and cash in on the wine-tasting rush...

This was our last stop on our wine tour. Good wines and Ben was very knowledgeable about the wines. We bought a bottle to take back to our hotel and enjoyed it on our last night in San Francisco!
