Description

Tietjen Vineyard is a magnificent site that sits on the quiet Niebaum Lane in Rutherford. Entirely planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, your Premiere Napa Valley lot comes from a distinct set of rows in the back block that we’ve enjoyed working with since 1989. Your 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is aging in a single best barrel of 100% tight-grained French oak. This rich, robust 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is tasting great in its youth, and will age gracefully for 20 or more years.

Chris Corley

Winemaker, Monticello Vineyards

Winemaker, Chris Corley

I worked at my family's winery in the summers as a teenager, and began full time in the cellar shortly after graduating high school.

Country born: United States

Education: I didn't go to college, choosing rather to learn my craft from the winemakers above and around me through an apprenticeship of 10 years in my family's winery, Monticello Vineyards prior to taking over as head winemaker. I find that the more I learn, the more questions I have. Educating ourselves is lifelong commitment and pursuit.

Years in the wine industry: 30+ years

Honors / Awards:
The greatest honor that I have received is from my family, entrusting me with making the wines that carry our Corley Family name.

Winemaking Philosophy:
The best wines are a combination of respectful grapegrowing and determined winemaking. I listen to the grapes in the field but command the wines in the cellar.
