  • Amapola Creek Vineyards & Winery

    It was his single-vineyard Chardonnays, Cabernet and Zinfandel, which he made for Chateau St. Jean in the 1970s, that put Richard Arrowood’s name on the map of iconic California winemakers. But it has been his steadfast commitment to crafting wines of terroir that has kept Richard vital and important, as he enters his fiftieth year of winemaking in Sonoma County.

    Amapola Creek Vineyards & Winery is quite simply Richard’s quest to make his greatest wines ever, and is a perfect example of the phrase “saving the best for last.” Amapola Creek, says Richard, represents the culmination of all that he has sought to do and learned over the decades. At Amapola Creek, he can focus on the very philosophy that has driven him from day one: quality without compromise and, above all, excellence.

     Founded in 2005, Amapola Creek by Richard Arrowood is an ultra-premium winery designed to produce just 3,000 handcrafted cases annually. The winery specializes in vineyard-designated Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Rosé, and Cuvée Alis, a Rhône-style red wine.

  • Pride Mountain Vineyards

    Pride MountainAs distinct from many wineries, Pride Mountain Vineyards ages all vineyard lots separately. Many of their individual vineyard blocks are picked in stages throughout harvest in order for each lot to be at optimal ripeness. Their forty vineyard blocks thus translate into more than fifty lots of wine separately aging in the cave. This labor-intensive strategy allows them to blend only complementary lots, possibly sell off de-classified lots if deemed necessary, and make viticultural adjustments to specific vineyard blocks.
