Venue

Bouchaine Vineyards

Bouchaine is owned by Festival major benefactors Gerret and Tatiana Copeland. Today, the winery is one of Napa Valley's leading producers of sustainably farmed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Bouchaine was the first Fish-Friendly Certified vineyard in Napa Valley, and also holds Napa Green Certification. The 100-acre estate includes a stunning new Hospitality Center and innovative culinary kitchen. The vineyards are greatly influenced by the adjacent San Pablo Bay, where cool breezes and daily fog allow cool climate varietals to shine, resulting in wines with vivid energy and texture.
