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.

They produce some of the best pinots in the Russian River. Their tasting room is in a contemporary building that is surrounded by beautifully landscaped Japanese gardens. A tour through the vineyards takes you to some the the most stunning, sweeping vistas in the area.

Really good detailed tasting in very nice surroundings. Excellent wines, the only problem is they sell out so fast!

Second time visiting Arista and it doesn't disappoint. Amazing grounds, scenic views of the vineyards and most importantly fantastic wines, especially the Russian River Pinot. Highly recommend.
