If you didn’t get the chance to listen to The Job Radio Show on 960am (San Francisco Bay area’s Working Radio) last Sunday night, you missed a very special interview! Larry Olson of The Job Radio Show interviewed Joelle Kurrus, Special Events Manager here at Cuvaison, on how she leaped into the Napa Valley wine industry.
“Every once and a while it’s good to get inspired by a real life success story. Someone who followed their career dreams. Joelle Kurrus left her life in Connecticut to follow her passion of wine in Napa. Listen to Joelle as she gives us a lesson in taking chances.” - thejob.podbean.com
Joelle is our Special Events Manager here at Cuvaison and along with putting on fabulous events, she holds a designation as an Advanced Certified Wine Professional from the Culinary Institute of America, Greystone.

Celebrating our 40th anniversary, we have turned our two tasting rooms into two fresh, distinct and stunningly evocative spaces. The re-design of our historic Calistoga site is a contemporary take on the classic tasting environment – warm and intimate, with an inviting tasting bar and tree shaded picnic grounds. While the Carneros site is a light-filled space surrounded by waves of vineyards, the compelling design blurs the distinction between in- and outdoors. Massive frameless glass doors slide out of sight, opening to a terrace protected from the elements by the building itself. Be sure to come check out our new spaces!
Celebrate with us at our grand re-openings this July!
Calistoga Open House – Saturday, July 11th, 4-8pm
Carneros Open House – Saturday, July 18th, 4-8pm
