THE STORY BEHIND CORO MENDOCINO
THE FIRST OF ITS KIND. ULTRA PREMIUM ZINFANDEL.
It was 13 vintages ago that a group of Mendocino County winemakers joined together and came up with a unique idea to create an ultra-premium wine blend that would showcase the heritage varietal of Mendocino County, Zinfandel. The christened label and blend known as “Coro,” named and inspired from the Latin root for “chorus” is the first wine of its kind to set blending and aging parameters for a wine distinctive to its region in the United States.
Every Coro wine is a signature blend, individually crafted in Mendocino County from 100 percent Mendocino County grapes, in strict accordance with the Consortium Mendocino Bylaws. Each Coro wine must lead with 40-70 percent Zinfandel and may be blended with up to nine named varietals, honoring the “Old Italian” field blends of Mendocino. Production must adhere to strict protocols set by Consortium Mendocino. In addition to the varietal parameters, there are strict rules concerning wine chemistry, and barrel and bottle aging before the release of this extremely limited case production.
As a final test, the Coro wines must pass a review by a panel of winemakers in four blind tastings before the wine is accepted and certified to carry the Coro Mendocino label. Once certified, each Coro wine is bottled in a uniform bottle, label and marked with the Coro seal. These are the only wines in the USA and, we believe, the world that adhere to such stringent quality rules.
Proceeds of Coro Wine Guild sales will go to Consortium Mendocino 501c6.
