Wine tasting at the “Yountville Tasting Station”

Cornerstone Cellars in Yountville CaliforniaTwo doctors from Memphis, Tennessee—Michael Dragutsky and David Sloas—founded Cornerstone with unusual haste.
In 1991, on a trip to Napa Valley, David was offered five tons of excess, high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. He telephoned his friend Michael back home, and before the conversation ended the two men had thrown caution to the wind: they decided to buy the grapes and enter the wine business. They’ve been long-distance wine producers ever since.
Perhaps being absent makes the wine grow better, because Cornerstone wines have received very high ratings and reviews from the first vintage on.
TCornerstone Cellars wine tasting in Yountville CAhe large, bright and sunny tasting room, where jazz is usually playing softly in the background, is located on Yountville’s main street at the “Yountville Tasting Station” (Page Cellars shares the small building).
Relax comfortably at tables and chairs, or cozy up to the small bar. Big picture windows, wood flooring, pastel walls, comfy couches and chairs, and handsome rugs complete the pleasant lounge-like ambience.
Try an olive oil or balsamic vinegar tasting while you’re there. And don’t overlook Cornerstone’s mid-priced second label, Stepping Stone.

Fascinating Fact:

The French Laundry—the restaurant considered by many culinary experts to be the best in the nation (if not the world)—is just steps away from Cornerstone Cellars.
