ARNS is located below Howell Mt. and above Meadowood County Club. We are the third owners of our property which was homesteaded in the late 1880's. We have 10 planted acres of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Our oldest vines are around 26+ years old. Our soils are very deep, well drained, Aiken series. Our winery was built in the mid-1980's. Our grapes were sold in the early days to Spring Mt., Dunn Vnyds, Cuvaison and Martin Ray. Today, our small winery houses ageing 2010 wines in 80% New French Oak Barrels. Our wines are estate grown which means they are grown, produced and bottled on the property. After 2.5 years of barrel ageing the wines are held for two years before release. John Arns is our viticuluralist and Sandi Belcher is our winemaker. Kathi
Belcher Tyler is our assistant winemaker.
Family Friendly Winery
Walk the vineyards and learn about pruning methods and cultivation practices. We have a scenic view of the western hills. Children love to play in the creeks, collect bugs, pick fruit and play with the dogs and cats. Lots of children love to frolic in our vintage 1945 Willis Jeep.
