  • Arista Winery was founded in 2002 by Al and Janis McWilliams. From the beginning the McWilliams have firmly believed that the finest examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are produced in small lots. This belief has always led to an emphasis on quality over quantity and a determination to discover and develop unique vineyard sites that reflect the distinct characteristics of the Russian River Valley. In 2012 the McWilliams’ sons Mark and Ben took over the family business and now run the day-to-day operations. 

    In addition to their vineyards, the estate also features one acre of organic gardens, a thriving brood of multiple breeds of American Heritage hens, and serves as the base for the honey and olive oil production. Timothy Kaulfers, executive chef, oversees the garden and masterfully marries the handcrafted wines with the hand grown produce to create truly inspiring pairings.
