Founded in 1987, Domaine Carneros reflects the hallmark of its founder, Champagne Taittinger, by creating a vision of terroir sparkling wine and preserving the quality principles of the traditional production method. Located entirely within the Carneros AVA between Napa and Sonoma counties, the estate’s six vineyards total approximately 400 acres with 150 acres planted to Chardonnay, 250 acres planted to Pinot Noir, with the remaining acres currently under development. The winery focuses on making ultra-premium Carneros sparkling wines grown largely on the estate and limited-production Pinot Noirs.

The Château du Domaine Carneros has become a landmark and a symbol of the region. The architecture and interior design were inspired by the 18th century Chateau de la Marquetterie owned by the Taittinger family in the Champagne region of France. In March of this year, the San Francisco Chronicle named Domaine Carneros one of the top 25 Bay Area wineries to visit.

The winery also places great importance on preserving the environment and has been a leader in a wide range of environmental endeavors. The roof of the pinot noir cellar adjacent to the chateau houses a solar panel which was the largest of any cellar in the world when it was installed and this year a new state-of-the-art micro-grid system will help the cellar with 85% of its energy needs. The winery has an ongoing commitment to creating a lighter footprint on the earth. Two of its most recent environmental awards have been the California Green Medal for Domaine Carneros’ demonstration of “smart business through efficiency, cost savings, and innovation through the implementation of sustainable practices. “, and in 2020, the Napa Climate Now Climate Champion in the Business category.
