Cuvaison

View all from Cuvaison
CuvaisonEstablished in 1969, Cuvaison is a Napa Valley estate vineyard and winery that produces Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown exclusively on its certified sustainable vineyard in Carneros, Napa Valley. Dedicated to a philosophy of producing vineyard-driven wines, Cuvaison employs block by block farming methods and a hand-crafted vineyard-to-bottle winemaking approach. Created from blocks that have been vinified separately by Winemaker Steve Rogstad, Cuvaison wines are consistently balanced and approachable, favoring nuance and complexity over sheer power and ripeness.

Cuvaison has been shaped profoundly by its current owners, the Schmidheiny family of Switzerland who purchased the winery in 1979. When Thomas Schmidheiny's mother visited the Carneros region in the late 1970's, she was so taken with the landscape and its potential for winegrowing that she brought a soil sample home to show her family. A year later, Thomas purchased the Carneros estate where Cuvaison now makes its home. In the years since, the family has thoughtfully re-invested all profits in the vineyard and winery, consistently providing the support needed to produce the highest quality grapes and wines. Cuvaison is locally-managed by a seasoned team that includes Dan Zepponi, named CEO in 2016, and Steve Rogstad, who was appointed Winemaker in 2002.
