Jarvis Communications selected as PR agency for Napa-Carneros based Bouchaine Vineyards
(March 15, 2021; Los Angeles, Calif.)—Katherine Jarvis, founder and president of Los Angeles-based Jarvis Communications, is pleased to announce that her firm has been selected as the public relations agency for Carneros-based Bouchaine Vineyards.
Bouchaine was founded in 1981 by Tatiana and Gerret Copeland, making it one of the oldest, continuously family-owned properties in the Carneros AVA today. Under the Copelands’ leadership, Bouchaine has grown from a pair of ramshackle buildings into one of the leading producers of sustainably farmed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the region. In 2015, they recruited Chris Kajani as general manager and winemaker, along with Erik Goodmanson as associate winemaker. Fueled by imagination, passion and with an eye toward the future, Kajani and her team have since elevated the farming practices and vineyards, modernized the cellar, and developed a new world-class hospitality center and demonstration kitchen. Throughout the pandemic, the team has also gained recognition for its uniquely creative virtual tasting experiences featuring everything from falconry demonstrations to showcasing top Bay-area chefs and world-renowned musicians.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bouchaine to the portfolio of family-owned wineries we represent,” says Jarvis. “The Copelands recognized and truly invested in this cool-climate region long before it was well known. They care deeply about sustainable agriculture and growing elegant wine, while also bringing effortless fun to each of the winery’s touchpoints. We look forward to bringing more attention to Bouchaine and its contemporary evolution as it enters its 40th year!”
Bouchaine was founded in 1981 by Gerret and Tatiana Copeland and is today one of the leading producers of sustainably framed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Carneros AVA. The estate is comprised of 104 contiguous acres, including a state-of-the art winery and a new world-class hospitality center and culinary kitchen. The vineyards at Bouchaine are greatly influenced by the adjacent San Pablo Bay, where the soils are made up of shallow clay loam and cobbled soils, offering excellent drainage. The location’s substantial diurnal temperature shifts help develop beautiful acidity in the fruit, resulting in wines with vivid energy and texture. Noted as the first “Fish Friendly Farming” certified vineyard in Napa Valley, the winery is also Napa Green-certified.
