Canard Vineyard: Cuvée des Cendres
Behind The Bottle
Canard Vineyard lost all Napa Valley estate wines in the 2020 Glass Fire, including their much beloved Coucher de Soleil Estate Rosé. Managing Director, Adam Fox, asked us to help design a rosé label honoring those who lost so much in the devastating 2020 fire season in Napa and Sonoma County. In a true multi-AVA collaboration, their French-trained winemaker got to work and sourced some beautiful high-altitude Grenache from Paso Robles, CA and made the wine in Sonoma, CA.
Cuvée des Cendres (“from the ashes”) represents the unwavering resolve of the California farmers, vintners and winemakers who have faced so many devastating fires over the last few years. Canard is French for duck, and it was only fitting to design a duck rising from the ashes.
