Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Cloaked in rich, toasty, mocha-scented oak, with a tasty range of plum, cherry and currant fruit that is rich and complex, unfolding gracefully to reveal extra flavor nuances. Long, intricate aftertaste. New from Lawrence Cortez and Romel Rivera, assistant winemaker at Pride.

Corte Riva Vineyards, California
Lawrence Cortez and Romel Rivera are the two winemakers behind Corte Riva Vineyards. These two men emigrated from the Philippines with their families in the late 1970s. They came in search of new opportunities to improve their lives; they came for the American dream, where hard work is rewarded and everyone has a chance to succeed. Although they initially arrived in different areas of California, these two men began a friendship in the Napa Valley town of Calistoga where they both worked in a vineyard tending the grapes. They even became family with the marriage of Lawrence to Romel's cousin Nieves!

The wines that have been created by Lawrence and Romel have been very successful. Lawrence and Romel have realized their American dream, they, and their families, have worked hard and are beginning to see the results.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
