3 Horse Ranch Vineyards in Eagle has a new winemaker. Corey Sprott hails from the vaunted Napa Valley, where he has been a winemaker there for nearly 40 years. Arriving in July of last year, Corey lives in Eagle. His daughter Gianna arrived in August to attend Eagle Middle School. In February, he and his wife Nikki moved the last of their belongings to Eagle where they are in the process of buying a new home. The family loves it here in Idaho – the people are friendly; the area is beautiful and “it feels like home”. 

When asked why he became a winemaker, Corey says that it was a process that evolved over time. As a teenager, he intended to become a physician. Growing up as the son of an Orthodontist, Corey was familiar with the life of health professionals – long hours of dedication away from one’s family. Entering UC Davis as a Biochemistry major, he soon realized that he wanted neither to be a physician nor a biochemist. Growing up in Napa, drinking local wines with his family planted the seed that he soon understood– winemaking was a perfect outlet to blend his love of science, of wine and of his hometown. He changed his major and was off on a new career. 

Corey began his career working at Robert Mondavi Winery, which he affectionately calls “The University of Mondavi” as so many successful winemakers had begun their careers there. It was a great place to learn where they do it right the first time, he says. Later he shepherded the cellar growth of William Hill Winery from a small winery to over 100,000 cases – all while helping to design their new winery on Atlas Peak road. Corey honed his winemaking skills at Rombauer Vineyards and then at Napa Cellars. He looks back at Napa Cellars fondly as a time where he was unleashed to make outstanding wines at a great value. In his most recent job in California’s Central Valley, he had a highly compensated operations job – but his heart was not in it as he could not be a hands-on winemaker.
