Kari Auringer

Winemaker, Cornerstone Cellars

Winemaker, Kari Auringer

Kari's passion for the great wines of the world, kindled her desire to be a winemaker and lured her from Chicago and a career in graphic design to Napa Valley. While honing her skills by making wine at home, she began working with some of California's great winemakers and also put herself through enology school.

Kari describes herself as a hands-on winemaker and gladly immerses herself in all aspects of the winemaking process from vineyard to bottle. Her style is one that embraces routinely rolling up her sleeves and staying intimately involved with every step of the intricate process, from vineyard sourcing and hands-on berry sorting through the countless details of winemaking, sensory analysis and the infinitely nuanced art and science of blending. If you don't find her tasting barrel samples in the winery, she is probably out kicking the dirt in a vineyard.

"I am thrilled to be part the team at Cornerstone Cellars. They too are committed to producing great wines from great vineyards, and making the kind of wines that we want to drink. I make wines that are a reflection of the vineyard, the vintage and the variety."

Country born: United States

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
