Proprietors Coreen Savikko and Bruce Burch began growing wine grapes in the Antelope Valley in 2000 and began producing award winning homemade wines as soon as the vines became mature. Our High Desert Zinfandel, Syrah, Viognier, and Symphony varietal wines all won medals, from bronze to gold, in local and international competitions.
2012 was our first harvest at Coruce, and we produced Chardonnay, Semillon, Syrah and Zinfandel from the Antelope Valley. We also featured two other fine wines Bob produced from the Central Coast including a complex Syrah, a lip smaking Zin, and a mind bogglingly big Viognier.
Turning Pro in 2013, we hired winemaker Bob Balentine after sampling his (and other winemakers') efforts.
Bob has a long history of producing his own wines (Line Shack Wines, The 411 Wine Company) as well as private labels for smaller operations and directing winemaking operations for a full scale winery like ours. As you'll find when you try our wines, Bob has perfected the art of creating rich, fulfilling, and downright tasty wines.
The 2013 harvest included a Malbec, Merlot, Syrah, Semillon and Chardonnay.
By the 2014 season, we brought in a local Viognier and an uncommon varietal known as “Symphony” a white California hybrid with a rich floral nose. Done off-dry it resembles the best Gewurtztraminers. As a sweetie/sticky, it’s an unctuously decadent desert.
On January 28, 2017, we opened our tasting room at 1055 West Columbia Way (Ave. M) Suite #105 in Lancaster, CA 93534
