History
Cuvaison winery is situated on the historic Silverado Trail in northern Napa Valley. In 1969 Thomas Cotrell and Thomas Parkhill, both Silicon Valley engineers, founded Cuvaison with a 27-acre vineyard at the winery's present location. New York publisher Oakleigh Thorne purchased the winery in 1974 and then appointed the Swiss-born Philip Togni as Winemaker. In 1979, the Schmidheiny family of Switzerland purchased Cuvaison as well as 400 acres of prime vineyard land in the Carneros region in southern Napa Valley. The fall of 1998 marked the purchase of the historic 170-acre Brandlin Ranch on Mt. Veeder. John Thacher took over the winemaking in 1982. In 1988, he was selected as Winemaker of the Year by "Wine & Spirits" magazine and then became President in 1998. With John's departure at the end of 2001, Jay Schuppert became President and Steven Rogstad took over as Head Winemaker. Steven oversees all vineyard operations at both the Carneros and Brandlin Ranch estates.
