Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours


Cuvaison Estate Wines in Los CarnerosCuvaison 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.
Cuvaison Estate Wines tasting room in CarnerosAs 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.
