Winemaker John Clark joined Corbett Canyon with a vision – introduce America to Corbett Canyon's outstanding value. Until this point, Corbett Canyon had been a small winery in beautiful San Luis Obispo, CA. The brand had a strong California following, but no national presence. As the brand grew, so did John's team's passion for finding ways to craft flavorful wines for everyday enjoyment.
As the team continued to innovate, John turned over winemaking duties to John Willumson - a winemaker with an unparalleled track record. With a career spanning over two decades, he has crafted luxury boutique wines in the Napa Valley, introduced new fermentation techniques to wines from the exciting Central Coast region, taught young winemakers how to soften tannins with exotic oak sources from around the world and even made wine for his own family's enjoyment.
But it is John's quest for consistent quality in Corbett Canyon wines that excites him the most these days. "With Corbett Canyon, I source premium grapes grown in the top wine regions around the world which give Corbett Canyon a greater concentration of flavors. I then balance our delicious fruit with a touch of oak to give the wine a classic style that people can count on bottle after bottle."
