This Month We Feature
Each month, The Wine Country Channel likes to take one of our sponsors and feature them on this dedicated page to better showcase what their business or service has to offer. It might be a winery, a restaurant, a relaxing spa, a wine tour, or any other kind of activity, service, or attraction that we feel deserves to be in the spotlight. We hope you enjoy this month’s featured business.
Richard Arrowood is an iconic winemaster who has been making wine exclusively in Sonoma County for more than for 50+ years. From 1974 through 1990, he created the wines for Chateau St. Jean, where he developed some of the first vineyard-designate Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Sonoma County.
He and his wife, Alis, founded Arrowood Winery with the 1985 vintage. Each year, they made extraordinary small-lot varietals and vineyard designates. Richard was the winemaster at Arrowood Winery until June 2010, when he resigned his position to devote himself full-time to making wines for his estate winery, Amapola Creek Vineyards and Winery.
