Cuvaison Estate Wines (Carneros)
Carneros AVA Winery in Napa Valley, California
Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours
Cuvaison is one of the few Napa wineries with two separate tasting rooms, one in Calistoga—on the Silverado Trail—and one in Carneros.
The 400-acre Carneros estate is sustainably farmed and planted to grapes that thrive in the San Pablo Bay climate of morning fog and cool bay breezes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Merlot.
As is common in Carneros, Cuvaison is characterized by a rustic feel and gently rolling hills that afford long-ranging views.
The tasting facility looks somewhat industrial on the exterior, but once inside it’s a bright, airy and modern facility with decorative touches like brushed-aluminum chairs and tall, stylish stools, all managed by a hip young staff. The room’s floor-to-ceiling windows give onto fabulous views of the vineyards and hills. On sunny days, though, you’ll probably prefer to sit outside on the patio. In either location be prepared for a relaxed, sit-down tasting.
Cuvaison has undertaken wide-ranging initiatives in support of sustainability, including an active cork-recycling effort.
