Earth Day is just around the corner and Cuvaison, celebrator of all things green, is giving back.
Starting now through Sunday April 22nd, we will donate 5% of total sales* to the Napa Valley Vine Trail.
The Napa Valley Vine Trail is a local grass roots organization working on designing, constructing and maintaining a 44 mile scenic multi-purpose paved hiking, biking, walking trail system which will connect the entire Napa Valley. Cuvaison is especially in favor of this organization’s efforts, because it will enable Napa Valley residents and visitors, to experience the valley while reducing our collective carbon footprint, reducing traffic in the valley, and encouraging people to get out and enjoy the outdoors!

Cuvaison President Jay, Winemaker Steve, National Sales Manager Steve and CarrieAnne helped immerse our five new additions to our national sales team, introducing them to Cuvaison’s culture and philosophy.
Help us give a warm welcome to Luciano, Carol, Nicole, John and Merritt!
This team represents in total, well over a hundred years of wine industry expertise that is sure to get Cuvaison and Brandlin wines onto more of your local fine wine shops and favorite restaurant’s wine lists.
We celebrated bud break in our Carneros and Brandlin Estate Vineyards in early March.
Now, the vines are slowly filling in with fresh young bright green sprouts. The cover crops between the rows are already quite robust, offering a colorful melange of flowers including winter peas, calendula and mustard.
Our vineyard crew is busy "chopping" (i.e. cutting all the grass) and getting ready
to turn the weeds over to ease the competition for water over the course of the year.
