Arnot-Roberts wines is a joint venture of two friends from school days. Their mission is very much Old World, though revolutionary and progressive to what California has previously been famous for. The duo have ventured to no-man’s land and beyond in seeking and sleuthing vineyards they found to be teeming with possibility. Their bottles are site-specific, requiring attention to detail. Before Arnot-Roberts, the majority of these sites had either been untouched or unknown to other winemakers.
Watson Ranch is on a steep hillside overlooking the San Pablo Bay area in southern Napa. The site is fortunate to have well-draining calcareous soil, organic farming coupled with cool winds making for a textured Chardonnay balanced with excellent acidity. The vineyard was named for a Napa attorney Augustus Watson, who owned the property in the early 1900s.
