Arrowood winery is located in the historic Sonoma Valley, a small sub-appellation in the heart of the county.
On a hillside just outside the town of Glen Ellen, overlooking the Sonoma Valley, Richard and Alis Arrowood founded Arrowood Vineyards & Winery in 1986. Since the winery’s inception, the goal has been to produce small quantities of hand-made wines from
their favorite hillside, bench, maritime and mountain vineyards throughout Sonoma County.
Arrowood Chardonnay 2011
Chardonnay style emphasizes the fruit and terroir with integrated oak while dialing up the brightness and structure of the wine.
They source the fruit from the Russian River Valley, Sonoma-Los Carneros, and other choice growing regions in Sonoma County where warm days are tempered by morning fog and afternoon breezes coming from the Pacific Ocean. It is refreshing, compelling and complex. A gorgeous wine for the price, it offers lots of honeysuckle, white currant and caramelized citrus notes along with beautiful purity as well as fruit.

It, Now! l
Second in fame only to Napa,
this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable.
From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the
sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and
peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the
mid 1800s. Important regions include Chalk Hill, Dry Creek Valley, Knights Valley Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.
