We made reservations and showed up at this small unassuming winery. Small building where the tastings are held with large glass doors over looking the vineyards, lovely views. Patti was so enthusiastic and so helpful describing the wines. You could see she truly loved her job and the wines. She gave us exceptional treatment and offered us a few more... More

Such a hidden gem. Tucked into the beautiful Carneros region this tasting room has a lovely deck with panoramic views of the green rolling hills of this region. Our host was lovely and so passionate about the wines. They were great and i just loved their Diablo Syrah we bought two bottles. We must have spent an hour and a... More

The wine was very good, quite spendy, but good. The "experience" though, was a zero. The person pouring offered no information or tidbits on the wine, and barely answered our questions. Definately not worth it. There is plenty of really good wine here.

Great, open space with huge windows, huge outdoor L shaped patio. Wines were decent. I liked Peju more, but the ambience here is divine. Nice juxtaposition of wood and metal.

My girlfriend (a wine club member) and I enjoyed a tasting of six wines at Cuvaison on another perfect California day brimming with blue skies and cool breezes. This winery is so peaceful and amazing...with wonderful views from their tasting room patio. Cuvaison is set up on a small hill; the tasting room is so modern, a wall full of... More

With so many great tasting options in Napa..no reason to put up with rudeness, unethical business practices, and just ok wine. In a great day of wine tasting in Napa today, this was the only low point. I was with an out-of-town group doing some serious buying who left with an average of 8 bottles per winery. We used tasting... More

Beautiful, modern designed tasting room overlooking the vineyard. The wines were average, but only one person working multiple tastings, even though we had a reservation. Disappointed in the slow flow of this tasting. I hope it was due to an illness and that it is normally better staffed.

Friends had raved over Cuvasion and the humor of the woman who had conducted their tasting. She had mused about "pairing" each wine with a chip: corn, potato, chocolate. They left with several cases of wine. Alas, we had no such experience. We arrive to find the bar stacked several deep, those pouring chatting amoungst themselves more frequently than with... More

Wife and I visited California wine country in the fall. Napa one day, Sonoma the next. This is our 5th trip over the years. We found Cuvaison and had by far the best tasting ever. Joined the club and are enjoying shipments of excellent wine at reasonable price. Best to make reservations.
