A Symphony of Carneros: Cuvaison 'Estate' Sauvignon Blanc

History and Pedigree: The Legacy of Innovation

Since its inception in 1969, Cuvaison has been at the forefront of Napa Valley winemaking, introducing the world to luxury Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As an early pioneer in the Los Carneros region, the winery has dedicated itself to producing vibrant, vineyard-driven expressions of exceptional cool-climate wines. Under the guidance of the Schmidheiny family since 1979, Cuvaison has focused on crafting distinguished Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, enhancing its reputation with a meticulously managed 400-acre estate in Los Carneros.

Production Highlights: The Art of Winemaking

Under the expert direction of Vice President of Winemaking Steve Rogstad, since 2002, Cuvaison has achieved new heights in winemaking excellence. The construction of a modern smart-shed winery under his oversight represents the pinnacle of innovation, enabling a small-lot approach that ensures the unique character of each wine. This meticulous attention to detail is reflected in the 2022 Estate Sauvignon Blanc, harvested and crafted with precision and care to capture the essence of Cuvaison's estate.

Product Details: A Tapestry of Flavors
