Arnot-Roberts was founded in 2001 in Healdsburg, California by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Duncan and Nathan grew up in the midst of vineyards and winemakers in the Napa Valley. Each took an interest in the wine industry, with Nathan following his father’s lead as a cooper, and Duncan pursuing winemaking in renowned wineries in Napa and Sonoma.
The focus of this two person operation is on small lot, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir, as well as several other varieties uncommon in Northern Californian vineyards. Through good fortune and a keen eye, they have identified vineyard sources that are both singular and extraordinary. Collaboration with dedicated and passionate growers is paramount in the farming of these sites and vinification of their wines.
From two high-elevation vineyards in El Dorado that over the last twenty years have seen the first plantings of genuine Gamay. Bright and peppery, with lightly carbonic aromas of vanilla, cream, strawberries, and raspberries leading on to firm tannins and a viscous palate. Wines like this make us hope that more California producers will work with Gamay.
