Winemaker Kristina Mielke-van Loben Sels the second generation of the Mielke family to oversee Arbor Crest and brings both education and practical skill to her work. A University of California at Davis fermentation science graduate, Kristina came to Arbor Crest after several years at Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery in Healdsburg, California . Her husband, James van Loben Sels, is an experienced viticulturist, which complements Kristina's skills nicely. Together, these two understand the complexities of grapes, soil, trellising, pruning, irrigation, and winemaking. They also share duties as the winery's general managers.

  • Arbor Crest Syrah Columbia Valley 2011


    I really enjoyed this wine. It is smooth with plenty of fruity body and a great flavor that stays on the tongue. If you're looking for super-bold then you might not like this but I prefer a wine that is smooth and enjoyable. I will definitely purchase this wine again. Read More

Limited release red-blend Dionysus, is named... Read More
