Name: This wine is named after co-owner Stephanie Schwartz. Like her, this wine is complex yet nuanced, a little spicy, a little sweet, and modesty prevents us from talking about the wine’s body! Cuveé is the French word for vat and tank. It is used to denote a blend of wines. Our Cuveé Stephanie is a blend of Pinot Noir grapes from 2 different vineyards in beautiful Santa Barbara County.
