Amapola Creek Vineyards & Winery by Richard Arrowood

Richard Arrowood is an iconic winemaster who has been making wine exclusively in Sonoma County for more than 50 years. Amapola Creek is his ultra-premium winery in a state-of-the-art facility designed to produce just 3,000 handcrafted cases annually. Located just north of the town of Sonoma, on the Arrowoods’ 100-plus-acre estate. The 20 acres of vineyards are spread from 350 to 1,000 feet above the valley floor on a western-facing slope at the top of the Mayacamas Mountains. The vineyards are CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) certified organic. Cabernet Sauvignon is Amapola Creek’s largest case production. The winery also produces Cuvée Alis, an estate blend of Grenache and Syrah named after Alis Arrowood. Amapola Creek’s neighbor, the historic Monte Rosso Vineyard, is the winery’s source of old vine Zinfandel, planted in the 1890s. Starting in 2010, Amapola Creek began producing Chardonnay from Jos. Belli Family Vineyards (CCOF) located in the Russian River Valley, with which Richard has had a working relationship for many years. Amapola Creek Vineyards and Winery is quite simply Richard’s quest to make his greatest wines ever, and is a perfect example of the phrase “saving the best for last.” Call to inquire about arranging for a private tour.
