Arista Winery
About Arista
We believe that wines made in the vineyard are well-behaved in the cellar. We coax them along with minimal intervention and gentle handling. Arista's wines have deep, rich flavors that reflect the unique sites from which they are sourced. Produced in small lots of several barrels, the wines are deliciously balanced with fruit, tannins, acidity and oak in harmonious proportion. In addition to our wines, we pride ourselves on having created a true destination experience for our visitors. A breathtaking setting of Japanese water gardens, mountain and vineyard vistas, combined with an inviting tasting room, offers guests a welcoming environment that encourages picnic lunches and leisurely days spent on the estate.
Wines
- 2006 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
The 2006 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir highlights the great growing conditions we had during late September into early October. The wine shows remarkable richness and density. Layers of dark berries and ripe, red fruit like cranberry and raspberry lead on the nose.
- 2006 Longbow Pinot Noir
This blend is our winemaker's selection of select vineyard blocks and specifically chosen coopers. From year to year the individual lots that make up this wine might change but the style remains the same: rich and lifted aromatics, dense and focused flavors and broad, velvety textures.    
- 2007 Anderson Valley Gewurztraminer 
This wine opens with an exotic nose of creamy coconut, ripe cantaloupe, honeydew and citrus aromas. Using a mix of barrel fermentation and stainless steel aging to achieve complexity, the firm, crisp flavors of orange zest, honey and lychee lend structure to the rich, round body. On the finish, similar fruit flavors are accentuated by a distinct layer of mineral and spice which make this a versatile wine with food. Enjoy over the next 2-3 years.   
- 2007 Russian River Valley Gewurztraminer
From the glass, the nose is greeted with an amazing array of tropical fruits like mango and papaya. Also on the nose, white flower blossoms like jasmine, honeysuckle or gardenia. The combination of tropical fruit and floral seem to indicate a slightly sweet wine but with the first sip it is clear that the wine bone dry. Mango, papaya and crisp pear greet the palate. The fruit is set atop a creamy texture which comes from the fermentation and partial aging in old, French oak barrels.
- 2006 Sonoma County Pinot Noir
A new wine in our line up, the Sonoma County Pinot Noir is a gentle, fruit driven wine that is focused on it's ability to pair with food. The nose is greeted with fresh, red fruit like strawberry, raspberry and dried cranberry. Similarly on the palate, generous amounts of cherry and strawberry are evident. Ninety percent of the blend was aged in twice or three times used barrels in an effort to minimize the oak influence and to maintain the gentle characteristics of Pinot Noir.
Tasting Room
Come taste our handcrafted Pinot Noir and Zinfandel from the Russian River Valley. We are just outside of Healdsburg, on Westside Road, in the heart of Sonoma's wine country. Arista's tasting room is surrounded by a beautiful Japanese garden, where you can relax next to a gentle waterfall and enjoy some of the Russian River Valley's finest Pinots, Zinfandels and other boutique wines. Or, feel free to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the gardens at your leisure.
