Cuvaison

Any guesses for our May ‪#‎CWAMemberMonday winery? In the 1970s, Thomas Schmidheiny’s mother was so taken with the landscape and potential winegrowing of Carneros that she brought a soil sample back to Switzerland to show her family. A year later, her son purchased this estate. Drumroll….. Cuvaison!

Cuvaison produces ‪#‎Chardonnay‬ and ‪#‎PinotNoir‬ that are grown exclusively on the winery's single estate vineyard in the heart of Carneros. A quick tidbit: Cuvaison is certified Sustainable by Fish Friendly Farming meaning they are committed to restoring fish and wildlife habitat and improving water quality. Who knew! ‪#‎CWAMemberMonday‬

Carneros Wine Alliance
The Carneros Wine Alliance is a non-profit association of wineries and grape-growers in the Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA).  Carneros is the only appellation located at the crossroads of two major wine regions, the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.  Influenced by the maritime breezes and fog from its southern border with the San Pablo Bay, Carneros produces the region’s finest Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and sparkling wines. The Carneros Wine Alliance is committed to promoting the distinction, diversity and above all, quality, of the grapes and wines from Carneros.
