Chardonnay your way into Cuvaison winery if you love good wine - seriously it's that simple! ️
I had their Chardonnay about a year ago when dining at Celadon in Downtown Napa (by the glass) and have been hooked ever since. Paired it with the scallops and it was absolutely delishhh!
Disclaimer: I'm not a really a big Chardonnay fan and I was like, "okay this one is GOOD"- (talking about Cuvaison's Chardonnay)
Crisp, acidic, hints of lemon gave it a luxurious mouthfeel with great length on the finish. When you do a tasting here, you get to try more of their delicious wines coming from the cool-climate Los Carneros AVA. Read below for more.
Tasting Top Highlights:
Came for the Chardonnay and left with the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Méthode Béton.
Only $40 and rated 91 points by Wine Advocate, a creamy and rich Sauvignon Blanc. DELICIOUS. I can't wait to open this with friends and family soon.
Informative tasting with five wines: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and a Red Blend. You also have the option to order a cheese plate AND caviar. We ordered two cheese plates, it was so good.
Tasted in their temporary tasting room with new renovations being released Nov. 22nd - so make sure to book a tasting then.
Highly recommend adding this family-owned winery when visiting Wine Country especially when exploring the Los Carneros AVA or staying in the area. Purchase these wines here. Make a reservation here. Feel free to let them know I sent you!
