Elyse Winery - Korte Ranch

Location

Korte Ranch is located in Northern St. Helena at the narrowest part of Napa Valley.

Dirt

Korte Ranch is on the valley floor in a mixture of rocky loams. Our blocks are completely dry-farmed; these ancient vines reach deep into the soil for moisture.

Ancient Vine Zinfandel

Korte Ranch is a pre-prohibition vineyard. All of our Zinfandel is over 70 years old.

Climate

Located in Napa Valley's "hourglass", Korte Ranch is heated by two mountain ranges all day and chilled all night by strong breezes.

Wines

For 17 years, we have produced a Korte Ranch wine, authentic to Napa's long and storied history of Zinfandel, with equal parts finesse and fruit.
