Bouchaine – wines that embody the elegance of Burgundy the exuberance of California - and the terroir of Carneros.
A left turn. Sometimes that’s all it takes. And suddenly a simple wine-tasting weekend has become a voyage of discovery. Less about imbibing and more about exploring. About finding yourself surrounded not by crowds, but by viticultural adventurers and winemakers more interested in sharing a bottle than presenting it. We like to think of our winery as a refuge for people who, like us, never stop looking for those unmarked roads that lead to unforgettable places and experiences.
So come. Get off the beaten path. Find a seat in Dee’s Garden. Enjoy the breathtaking Carneros countryside. And begin to rethink what the Napa Valley wine experience is all about.
WHY VISIT US?
….because we are a privately-owned boutique winery producing 22,000 cases per year – which allows us to do very unique things! We can experiment in the vineyards with pruning and irrigation… in the winery using different woods and toasts… and we can emphasize what comes from the vineyard and how we craft the wines.
We are a fun and friendly group of people who take pride in making sure all our visitors enjoy their time at Bouchaine. Whether you come to enjoy the fabulous Carneros views, or have an adventure on a tour, or taste our wine directly from the barrel – you are sure to have a unique and memorable experience at Bouchaine. We look forwarding to welcoming you!
