About Carneros Fire Department

Established in 1959, the Carneros Volunteer Fire Department “CVFD” was originally named the Edgerly Island Volunteer Fire Department.  CVFD operates as one of the volunteer departments under the Napa County Fire Department.  We are an all-risk department, providing emergency response to all types of emergency incidents.  This includes but is not limited to:  fire and rescue calls, medical emergencies, and public assists.  Our immediate coverage area consists of the Edgerly Island and Carneros areas, extending to the West at the Sonoma County line, to the north to the Browns Valley areas and Redwood Road, and to the east to the Solano County Line including the Napa airport industrial areas. 

The Fire Department facility also provides a venue for various community events and meetings, such as the Edgerly Island Reclamation District and Milton Road community events.  These facilities are maintained by the CVFD members and the donations and generosity of our community and local businesses.

About Artesa Winery

The Artesa Estate Vineyard is set in the steep foothills that straddle the Los Carneros and Mount Veeder AVAs at the southern tip of the Napa Valley. Its proximity to the San Pablo Bay, three miles south, provides the cool, maritime climate ideal for pinot noir and chardonnay. Our 150-acre vineyard is planted along five distinct ridges, with a variety of slopes and soils. To farm such a complex site, we divide the vineyard in over fifty distinct blocks, tailoring our efforts to the unique character of each block.
