Arista Winery was founded by the McWilliams family in 2002 with a mission to create the most elegant expression of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. We are committed to sustainable farming practices and sustainable business practices. We farm our 30 acres of estate owned vineyards and we work closely with local growers who share our dedication to sustainability in their vineyards. We do not attempt to manipulate our vineyard sites but instead strive to preserve each vineyard's natural qualities. 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.

This winery is by appointment only and it's totally worth it! The wines are amazing, the staff knowledgeable and fun, and they have the most beautiful Japanese garden!

Beautiful Japanese gardens surround the wineries and the pinot noirs are great. But you need to make an appointment.

This is a winery owned by someone willing to invest in a beautiful garden and charge lots of money for most of its wines. We really enjoyed wandering throughout their garden and tasting a number of wines, primarily Pinot Noir. The value of the wine...More

This is a gem of a winery. The Pinot Noirs are excellent, and they make a Zinfandel that is very unique...tastes more like a Pinot Noir which makes sense since the winemaker specializes in Pinot Noir. The wines are only available at the winery, so...More
