Founded in 1969, Cuvaison is one of the pioneering wineries that helped shape the modern era of Napa Valley winemaking. As an independent, family-owned winery for nearly five decades, we are dedicated to crafting exceptional wines from our acclaimed estate in the Los Carneros region of Napa Valley. To this day, our mission remains true to our roots, and so do our wines.
In the vineyard: After a very wet and snowy winter, we emerged from a 5-year drought and plunged into a summer marked by periods of high heat followed by abnormally cold weather. Once the summer ended, the major events that would shape the 2017 harvest began. The ﬁrst was a brief but intense heat wave that shocked the vines and delayed the onset of harvest a few weeks. Once the ball got rolling again, we were able to ﬁnish our 2017 harvest under exceptional conditions. We were fortunate to have picked the last fruit from our Los Carneros estate the same day that the Partrick Road (Nuns) Fire began. This was a part of a complex of ﬁres that spanned Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties and lasted over two weeks. We are thankful that we were spared any damage, and it is no surprise that our 2017 vintage is one to remember.
“A remarkably consistent and cool Vintage, our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc shimmers with bright aromatics and lively acidity. Exotic tropical notes on the high end with plenty of melon, citrus, lime zest and gooseberry notes flesh out the flavor profile. Fermented entirely in stainless steel to preserve it’s fresh aromatics, our Sauvignon Blanc is also aged on it’s lees, which are kept in suspension by gentle stirring, to broaden the wines viscosity and sensation of depth.” – Steve Rogstad, Winemaker
