Bouchaine Vineyards is the oldest continually operated winery in the Carneros region of Napa Valley. Established in 1928 by Italian immigrant Johnny Garetto, and purchased by Gerret and Tatiana Copeland of Wilmington Delaware in 1981 the winery has sustained a long legacy of family ownership. Gerret and Tatiana followed their dream of specializing in their favorite Burgundian varietals, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and have specialized in these varietals for the past 25 years. All vineyard and winery operations are consistent with the sustainable theme. The winery’s beautiful façade is made from recycled redwood from the winery’s original wine tanks.
Our vineyards are farmed using sustainable practices leaving a gentle imprint on the land. Our vineyards have received the Napa Valley Green Certification, an endorsement that we are in accordance with the preservation of our natural resources. Located just north of the San Pablo and San Francisco Bays, the vineyard is directly influenced by the fog that rolls in each night. The shallow, clay loam soils are perfectly suited to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Our winemaking team is a fusion of seasoned veterans and innovative students of enology and viticulture.
