Critic Scores & reviews
""Loganberry, sassafras and anise notes mix together in this red, with a juicy finish that keeps everything focused. Not big, but shows nice character and balance.""

The United States is now the fourth-largest producer of wine worldwide, with an abundance of grapevines planted in many wine regions, though Californian accounts for almost 90% of the country's output. In the late 1800s, the root louse phylloxera decimated many of the vineyards in Europe. It originated in the soils of North America where the vines are naturally resistant and was transferred to Europe on vine cuttings. In this case, North America was both the cause of the problem, and the solution, in the form of resistant rootstock for grafting.
It wasn’t until 1973 when Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon and a Chardonnay from Château Montelana were judged to be the best in the world at the famous Paris Wine Show that the quality of the Californian wine industry was truly confirmed in the eyes of Europe.
Most all varieties are planted these days in the United States, from Syrah to Tempranillo, Pinot Noir to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Viognier and every blend in between. Key varieties are Californian Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Chardonnay. Cooler climates such as Oregon and Washington produce brilliant Pinot Noir. Even states previously considered too hot and arid for wine, like Arizona are being planted, with great results.
California is home not only to most of the wine production in the United States, but also to some of the country’s most renowned wines. Thanks to a climate that features warmth, sunshine, cooling influences from ocean breezes and fog, and varying altitudes, California producers can make a wide range of wine styles. Among California’s black grape varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon (the state’s most widely planted black variety), Zinfandel, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. For white wines, the most prominent are Chardonnay (the most planted grape variety of either colour) and Sauvignon Blanc. Regionally speaking, California’s main vineyards fall under five regions, three of which contain most of the county appellations and American Viticultural Areas (AVAs): North Coast, Central Coast, and Central Valley (which produces most of the state’s wine). North Coast encompasses the counties of Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino. Central Coast includes the Santa Cruz Mountains and Monterey AVAs as well as San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties, including the Paso Robles AVA and Santa Maria Valley AVA. Central Valley is home to the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys as well as the Lodi AVA.

About the brand Arno
Arno Wine Co. is a small husband and wife team based in the Barossa Valley, SA. Ruby studied wine at Adelaide University, Craig cut his teeth alongside Matt Wenk and Taras Ochota at Two Hands Wines.
Arno Wine Co. is a small batch, boutique wine producer of dangerously drinkable wines in the famous Barossa Valley. The rambunctious vinous child of husband and wife team Ruby Stobart and Craig Viney, we make wines that are delicious and speak clearly of both the region and the season.
We source from growers who farm in a thoughtful, sustainable way and gently coax them into the bottle without a heavy winemaking thumbprint on the finished wine.
Our home in the Barossa Valley is a constant inspiration for us. It’s beautiful scenery, the sense of community, the produce and of course, the amazing resource of old vines farmed by families that have generations of experience in the vineyards. Semillon, Mataro, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Shiraz form the backbone of Arno Wine Co’s quiver.
While we want our wines to speak clearly of the place and time, deliciousness is always the end result. We all like to geek out on wine, but we like to think that are wines are for “drinkin, not thinkin”.
