Corinne -The Bottle Washer in Chief

Corinne, the winemaker, hails from South Africa and came to the United States in 1983. She settled in the Bay Area and toiled in High Technology until 2000.

Since her youth, Corinne has been passionate about the outdoors and was an avid equestrienne in South Africa where she competed successfully in Show Jumping and Eventing disciplines.

When she happened on the Torre Ranch in Amador County she knew she had found the property of her dreams. However her priorities flipped: the hobby vineyard turned into a commercial vineyard, and the two horses which she acquired and planned to breed in 2004, are living a life of luxury, while Corinne, the winemaker, concentrates on her wine business.

Corinne is also a lover of fine wines, and has always been intrigued by the wine making process. Thus, looking beyond High Technology, Corinne yearned to move to the country to start a horse ranch and a hobby vineyard.
