Corralitos Wine Company


The Corralitos Wine Company is a collaborative effort by experienced and dedicated wine growers & winemakers. After years of making wine for our own use, we have refined the art of making fine wines by hand. We are now ready to share the fruits of our labor with the public. We hand-craft small lots of unique high-quality wine, then sell the majority of it directly to our customers. Beautifully balanced and with lots of dense fruit, this is an easy drinking wine that will pair with many different kinds of food.

Robert Marani, William Demar, Murray James:

Here’s a law in winemaking, “If you start with great fruit, you can make great wine.” Rob Marani and his colleagues and partners William “Bill” DeMar and Murray James, understood this from the beginning. Keep in mind, this was for our own consumption, and for friends who happened by.”Our friends kept telling us we should get serious and share this great wine with everyone else. So, more than 10 years later, we have turned our ‘hobby’ into Corralitos Wine Company.


in 1999 a group of friends and colleagues who were living in and around Corralitos, California, had a dream to make wine. They had no experience with making wine, they just agreed that they shared a mutual passion for wine. So, starting with a bit of research on the process, they set out to handcraft wine, one barrel at a time.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Our passion for really great wines has led us to the planting of 5 acres of Pinot Noir in the Santa Cruz Mountain appellation where we will soon have our own estate wines. For now we use our extensive contacts in the Sonoma, Napa, Monterrey and Santa Cruz wine growing areas to secure grapes from premier vineyards. We carefully monitor all aspects of the growing and harvesting process to make sure we get the right fruit, at the right time.
