Seghesio Family Vineyards Arneis Russian River Valley 2009
Arneis originates from the hills of Roero, northwest of Alba in the Piedmonte region of Italy from which our grandfather, Edoardo Seghesio, emigrated in 1886. First noted in Italian records as far back as 1478, Arneis’ production grew as it was often planted among rows of Nebbiolo to lure hungry birds away from the more prized red grapes. Arneis’ literal translation is "little rascal," due to the viticultural challenges it presents in the vineyard. For some time, we had the largest planting of Arneis in the U.S., all of 26 vines. Today, we have 8 acres planted on our Keyhole Ranch, where the cool climate produces highly expressive Arneis.
