Jay Corley established Monticello Vineyards in 1969. Today, the Corley family farms five small vineyard sites in the Napa Valley that produce wines under the Monticello Vineyards, Corley Reserve and Corley labels. The Home Ranch Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District is the only estate vineyard with Pinot Noir (along with Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon). Pinot Noir plantings are heirloom selections and Dijon clones 113, 115, 667 and 777. A single Estate Grown Pinot Noir is produced under the Monticello Vineyards label.
The winery's tasting room and winery are located at the site of the Home Ranch Vineyard. The tasting room is open daily.
