The winemaking philosophy at Arrowood is simple: Produce classic varietal wines using grapes exclusively from Sonoma County's diverse viticultural areas such as Russian River Valley, Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys or Sonoma-Carneros. This approach has not changed since the winery was founded in 1986 by Richard Arrowood and his wife and partner, Alis Demers Arrowood. Richard has been making wine for more than four decades. Before founding Arrowood, he was winemaker and the first employee at Chateau St. Jean. There he produced the winery's first releases: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and a wine that may have very well put Chateau St. Jean on the map - a Select Late Harvest Riesling.

  • Arrowood Red Rhone Blend Russian River Valley la Rosé 2009


    Untypical chardonnay. The nose almost as delightful as the actual taste. Toasty and oak undertones, drier than usual for a chardonnay, gala apple, vanilla, and some creaminess without being "buttery." Tasted tonight at 4 Flights Wine Boutique and was well received by everyone tasting. Read More
