Coursey Graves

Bennett Valley

Our Story

Hidden among the renowned mountain properties of Napa and Sonoma, planted to steep hillsides high above the valley floor, lesser-known vineyards quietly yield some of the world’s most exceptional fruit. Cool-weather and rocky soils mimic the austere conditions of Bordeaux, rendering highly concentrated fruit with sublime characteristics found nowhere else.

We exist to discover and celebrate these unhailed vineyards by making wines in perfect reflection of place, expressly crafted to improve with age.

Meet the Winemaker

CABELL COURSEY, OWNER WINEMAKER - Cabell’s love for winemaking began in Burgundy where he worked his first harvest during an undergraduate semester abroad. Postgrad, he returned for additional vintages picking grapes, scrubbing tanks and barrels, and learning traditional winegrowing methods passed down through generations. His desire for knowledge took him next to harvest in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and later to Christchurch, New Zealand where he earned graduate degrees in Enology and Viticulture from Lincoln University. It was there he developed the passion for cool climate wines that guides his style today. Before starting Coursey Graves in 2017 with partner John Graves, Cabell made wine for Alder Springs Vineyard, Dumol, Flanagan, and Kosta Browne.
