IL CUORE (eel-quarry) means "The Heart" in Italian. The name is a tribute to the Italian immigrants who first planted the North Coast of California to vine in the late nineteenth century. Our wines are produced from choice grapes grown in Mendocino County. The success of wine grapes here has long been attributed to complex soils, warm daytime temperatures and cool nights. A hallmark of the IL CUORE style is the gentle use of oak to allow the natural fruit qualities of our grapes to become the focal point of the wines. Our main goal is to produce wines of quality and character at a price suitable for daily consumption. Our hope is that IL CUORE wines will be consumed with good food as part of a healthy and passionate lifestyle.
