About Arrowood Vineyards and Winery
Chardonnay and Cabernet are the most important varieties from a commercial standpoint at Arrowood, but the Viogniers and unusually rich barrel-aged Pinot Blanc have been consistently excellent for many years. We are especially fond of the rather full-bodied tropical, honeyed, minerally wines made from Saralee's Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Founded in 1986 by Richard and Alis Arrowood, this Sonoma county winery is now overseen by winemaker Heidi von der Mehden. After working as assistant winemaker under Arrowood for three years, she was named head winemaker upon his departure in 2010.
