Winemaker, Aurora Coria

 

Aurora is the daughter of Luis and Janice Coria, the owners of Coria Estates. Rori, as her family and friends call her, grew up helping her folks working in the vineyard and behind the scenes in the administrative side of owning a 60 acre vineyard. She didn’t always know she wanted to be a winemaker, but when her mom prompted her with the question, “Maybe it’s time to start our own label?” At that moment the choice was so obvious! Rori was working in Public Health in Portland Oregon at that time; which had been her first passion; but that conversation with her family was the beginning of an entire life change.

Rori decided to go back to school and study Winemaking, and in a few short years, Coria Estates had their first crush under label in 2013! Rori started her career in winemaking in 2011. She studied at the Northwest Wine Studies Center, and has interned at Oregon wineries, as well as studied winemaking and worked a vintage abroad in Tasmania, Australia. She believes in being hands off stylistically in the winery and letting the fruit speak for itself. She believes that if you manipulate a wine too much, you lose the natural essence of the fruit you started with.

 

 

Winemakers Philosophy

 

'No two vintages are the same; which provides us with a unique and expressive wine each year. This makes the entire process an exciting and mysterious part of the beauty and joy we gain from the vines and from wine making itself.' — Aurora Coria

 

 

 

Alma de Cória

Alma de Cória

 

 

Alma de Cória was inspired by our winemaker, Aurora Coria, to highlight special passion projects from vineyard to cellar. The fruit is sourced from favorite blocks in the vineyard and is processed with meticulous attention to detail from harvest through aging.

Barrel programs are carefully selected for each of the Alma family wines and blending trials are intimately curated to create the highest quality and elegant wines. As Alma means ‘the soul or spirit’ in Spanish, we are sharing a little bit of our family spirit in every bottle of wine.
