We are very proud to be a family owned and managed winery. Our father, Jay Corley, came to Napa Valley in 1969 seeking land to plant and grow an estate vineyard. Thirty-five plus years later, sons Kevin, Chris and Stephen manage the winery: Kevin is our Winegrower and President, Chris is our Winemaker, and Stephen is our Director of Wine Sales. We are a small winery producing approximately 15,000 cases of wine annually designated MONTICELLO VINEYARDS, CORLEY RESERVE and CORLEY. In 1969 our father, Jay Corley, began searching for an appropriate site to grow wine grapes and quickly recognized that the best wines in the United States were made from grapes grown in the Napa Valley. Since his personal interest was in Burgundian-style wines, he chose to initially focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and therefore acquired land in what is now known as the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley in 1970. The Oak Knoll District is in southern Napa Valley, just north of the town of Napa, and with its cooler temperatures Read more »

  • Monticello Vineyards Napa Valley Presidential Merlot 2006

    Snoothrank:

    First night: very disappointing. Second night: WOW! Very nice fruitiness - black/blue berries, cherry cola, hint of mushroom (in a good way), healthy dose of pepper, and very subtle toast. Good dose of acid makes the fruit really zing, silky tannins with very fine dust. Decent length peppery, aromatic finish. This is definitely a Merlot that can... Read More

  • Monticello Vineyards Estate Grown Oak Knoll District Merlot 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This Merlot from the cooler Oak Knoll part of Napa Valley harkens back to old school Napa as well as ye olde world France. Exquisitely balanced, the wine shows focused rays of black cherry and red currants counterpointed by espresso and cocoa powder and kept lithe and lively by that great cool weather acidity. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    although Merlot gets a bad rap, still don't understand that, it is better than a lot of expensive cabs Ive had. You get your moneys worth and a wine to really talk about. nice nose, very smooth and low acidic which is great for me since over time that has been a health concern for me. very nice. Read More
