Arista Winery was founded by the McWilliams family in 2002 with a mission to create the most elegant expression of Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The winery is committed to sustainable farming practices of its estate vineyards and works closely with local growers who share their dedication to sustainability in their own vineyards. Today, winemaker Matt Courtney crafts small-lot, site-driven wines that are deliciously balanced with fruit, tannins, acidity and oak in harmonious proportion. In addition to their wines, the winery has created a true destination experience for its visitors through a breathtaking setting of Japanese water gardens, mountain and vineyard vistas and culinary program for visitors to their Westside Road and Russian River Valley estate. All tasting experiences are by appointment only. We will no longer be open to the public for tastings without an appointment. Due to the intimate size of our tasting room, we are unable to accommodate groups larger than 8. For inquiries regarding tastings please contact us at [email protected] Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate Bachelor / Bachelorette Parties.
