Spotlight on: Cathy Corison, Winemaker/Owner
With tenacity and determination, Cathy Corison has forged a life of wine that has spanned three decades, transcended formidable challenges and surpassed her wildest dreams. Cathy discovered her passion for wine while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in biology at Pomona College in Claremont, California. Inspired by the notion that wine is “alive at every level,” she went on to receive a master’s in Enology from U.C. Davis in the mid 1970’s. Almost thirty years of winemaking for others, including Chappellet Vineyard, Staglin Family Vineyard, York Creek Vineyards and Long Meadow Ranch, honed her skills and left her eager to express her own winemaking voice. In 1987 she made the first vintage of Corison Cabernet. “There was a wine inside me that needed to be made”, she says.
