Controlling all farming aspects within our estate vineyard gives Cuvaison an advantage in producing the best quality fruit thereby minimizing over manipulation at the winery. Winemaker Steven Rogstad sums it up best, “My style and philosophy are based on expressing the unique character of our estate grapes and doing as little as possible to them. When one has such wonderful fruit to work with, that should be one’s emphasis.” Cuvaison complies with the code of Sustainable Winegrowing Practices and holds certifications from Bay Area Green Business and Napa Green Certified Land and Winery.

Carneros Estate Vineyard

        

Mount Veeder Estate Vineyard

     
In the southernmost corner of Napa Valley and lies our 400 acre estate vineyard in the Carneros region. This site is characterized by fog and cool breezes from the San Pablo Bay, gently rolling hills and dense clay soils. The morning fog keeps the grapes from heating up too quickly, while the afternoon wind lowers leaf temperature and dries the dew left by the morning fog. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir  thrive in this setting and are characterized as elegant, crisp, refreshing wines with floral and fruit nuances.   Our historic 170-acre Brandlin Vineyard is located in the Mayacamas range on the southwest side of Napa Valley, in the Mount Veeder appellation. Composed of gravelly loam soil over shale, the vineyard lies on a ridgeline overlooking Napa Valley. The vineyard is divided into 15 sustainably-farmed blocks, that showcase the varied aspects in sun exposure, slope and soil composition. Vines endure the drought stress typical of exposed peaks and free-draining mountain soils renowned for producing powerful wines.
