Vincent Arroyo’s winemaking style is the embodiment of his philosophy about his land. Take what you have, and do the best you can with it. Each wine at the winery is hand-crafted, starting from before the grapes are harvested. Vince decides how the grapes from each vineyard will be vinified, when they will be picked, how they will be crushed, what fermentation regimes they will undergo (pumpovers, extended macerations, pressings), and finally, what percentage of French or American barrels, new or old barrels to maximize the optimum flavors of the wine during the barrel-aging process.

The wines produced at the Vincent Arroyo Winery have put a star on many Napa Valley maps as a place that shouldn’t be missed. His signature wine, still Petite Sirah, has become so popular that it often sells out before it is bottled every year. Once you have tasted the wines, you’ll know why. The winery also makes a Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Zinfandel and several red blends.

  • Had another great visit to Vincent Arroyo Winery! Sampled probably a dozen great wines and purchased a case to shop home! This is the place to go if you want the full history of winemaking or, if you want to test your knowledge. Was greeted with nearly private tasting with me and my sister, got to see the vineyard and the place where they make the wine. If you want off the beaten path, yet delicious wine, …
  • Recently visited Vincent Arroyo Winery, while driving from Sonoma to the winery you pass hundreds of other wineries, but let me tell you that it was worth the drive from the moment we arrived our host Jeff was amazing. Even though we were running late for our appointment we were greeted by Jeff and immediately sat and started our tasting. The wines were amazing and Jeff was very knowledgeable about the history and wine making process. We were even able to tour the winery and walk around the vineyard. What is normally a 1hr tasting turned into a 2- 2 1/2 hr experience. I cannot say enough good things about Vincent Arroyo Winery a truly hidden gem in the Napa Valley.
