In 1989, Melissa Moravec and her husband, Kurt Reaume, planted a seven-acre vineyard at their home in Napa Valley's half of the Carneros wine-growing region close to the San Francisco Bay. Because of the ideal climate for traditional Burgundian grapes, they planted eight different selections, or clones, of Pinot Noir. Casa Carneros, both the vineyard and the wine, reflect the beauty of the region, and the care and passion Melissa and Kurt have for wine.
