Corte Riva was founded by husband and wife Nieves and Lawrence Cortez and Nieves' cousin Romel Rivera (hence Corte Riva) in 2001. They had emigrated from the Philippines to California in the '70s and worked in various wineries before eventually founding their own. Aside from his duties at Corte Riva, Romel is also the assistant winemaker at the highly regarded Pride Mountain Vineyards. The grapes for Corte Riva are sourced from various vineyards in Napa and occasionally the surrounding counties like Lake and Sonoma as well.
