- Our Clubs
Arnot-Roberts was founded in 2001 in Healdsburg, CA by childhood friends from Napa Valley, Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Nathan is a second generation cooper and personally builds all of the French oak barrels utilized in the ageing of Arnot-Roberts wines. Duncan has worked making wine in the Napa Valley in wineries like, Caymus, Groth, Acacia, Kongsgaard.
This Rosé is made from Portuguese varietal, Touriga Nacional. Grapes are from a vineyard near Clear Lake, north of Napa Valley. It has a very nice combination of fresh vibrant fruit and floral & spice aromas.
The Gamay Noir vines at the Barsotti and Witters vineyards in El Dorado are maturing, and we feel the wine we are making from these two sites is getting better every year. The high elevation, decomposed granite soils and impeccable farming by the Mansfield family create a magic combination for this variety.
Trousseau is one of our favorite varieties in the world and we are thrilled with our 2017 North Coast bottling. All three of our sites: Luchsinger, Bohan and Bartolomei, fared well last year, providing great material for the final blend. We feel the vintage is a beautiful representation of what this variety can do in California, and we look forward to drinking this light-bodied red this fall, especially with our Thanksgiving gatherings where it always seems to be the first wine to disappear from the table.
