We currently have five acres designated for vineyards on our property. We originally planted many varietals that did not fit the micro climate that exists on our plot of land. Although it has a nice southerly facing slope, we thought the cold air drainage would be adequate with the falling eastern terrain. After several years of data points, we identified the need to change some of our varietals to cope with the late spring frosts and early fall frosts.

Managing owners Mark and Jacque Cook opened Coronado Vineyards in November 2006, with the belief that the true value in wine is in its experience. Inherently, wine is created to be enjoyed by those who consume it.

It is up to you to decide your favorite, and for that reason Coronado Vineyards creates wines distinctly for you and your individual taste.
