Block By Block Farming in our Carneros Estate Vineyard

At Cuvaison we take a meticulously detailed approach to farming that starts from the ground up. After carefully mapping changes in soil depth, composition, drainage, aspect and slope, we planted the vineyard into a complicated patchwork comprised of 44 different blocks of Chardonnay and 20 unique blocks of Pinot Noir.

These blocks range in size from a few rows up to 12 acres, and each block has its own distinctive match of rootstock and clone. Each block is farmed as its own little vineyard, harvested separately and made into its own batch of wine.  

By farming and crafting these wines in this way, we are able to knit together a more complex and fully realized expression of our Estate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir - as each block adds its own special nuance to the overall blend.
