Buffered by gently sloping hills and the San Pablo Bay, Bouchaine Vineyards inhabits a truly unique space in the Napa Valley. The southernmost region in the southernmost appellation of Napa, Bouchaine cultivates Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, crafting widely acclaimed wines that are nuanced, finely balanced and truly showcase the best characteristics of these famously fickle varietals. Get away from your getaway—leave the crowds behind, hike through our vineyards, and be our guest at Bouchaine.
Bouchaine's long wine producing history is respected today as we apply common-sense sustainable practices to making interesting, layered wines with sensual delight. We follow three simple tenets: first, do no harm; second, be a good neighbor; and third, make the best, varietally correct, complex, and sophisticated Chardonnays and all things Pinot. Winemaker and General Manager Chris Kajani was just recently appointed. She carries on the rich tradition built by Michael Richmond, the seasoned Carneros and winery veteran.
Our wines beautifully embody the elusive goal of “blending with power and full flavor without sacrificing the ethereal perfume that is Pinot Noir”.
