Morey family has been involved in winemaking and grape-growing for several
centuries, both in Europe and here in the United States. Our latest vintage, the 2002
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, is being brought to you by the new generation of the
Moreys which enjoys both the wisdom of our ancestors and the energy of
our youth. We have been making wine here in California for well over one decade and
have enjoyed sharing it with our friends and family. Now that it is commercially available, we can share this wine with
our new friends!
Our 2002 vintage boasts only 199 cases which means that we continue our tradition of producing low volume,
high quality wines, and plan on keeping this label at that level. This wine was made to become a
classic and last for many years. While we are steadfastly working
on our next releases, we understand that you—our friend—will
trust us to continue producing wines of at least the same quality and,
hopefully, better. Again, we are sure that you will not be disappointed.
We have committed ourselves to making the Morey name synonymous with
fine quality and, to be honest, somewhat rare wines. We do not plan on
expanding to the level of producing tens of thousands of cases. All
of our wines are aged at least 24 months in barrels in order to ensure the best
interaction between the wine and the oak, and to obtain a silky, complex,
and dense wine. Maintaining these barrels—tasting the wines
weekly, topping them off, racking from one to another—is nothing
less than a labor of love. If you knew how much manual labor is involved
in creating such great wines, you would understand how a winemaker learns
to love his (or her!) wines. Now you understand how we cannot increase
production without sacrificing the love that goes into these wines. And
the Moreys are not known for sacrificing quality! And, yes, we put up a pretty good fight for what we believe is right, fair, and honest, as our Irish and Scottish ancestors believed.
We always look forward to hearing from our friends. Feel free to
drop us a line or give us a call and tell us what you think of our wine
or order some!
