About Notaviva Vineyards:
NOTAVIVA is the intrinsic effect of music upon human emotion and was derived from the Italian nota (music note) and viva (with life.) The original goal was to design a word that could capture the essence of music's effect on human emotion. Our goal in the founding of our vineyard is to capture that feeling and put it in our wines. Be it joy or sadness, we endeavor to create wines that will connect our patrons with their occasions. To that end, we shall name our wines with appropriate musical terminology. From our “Vincerò” Viognier to our “Cantabile” Cabernet Franc our wines shall seek to convey a wide range of emotions to enhance the enjoyment of both the wines and the moment.
