“Best Petit Sirah In The Valley”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

A small, family owned winery that produces the best Petit Sirah in the valley. A close second is Vince's Cabernet Sauvignon. You are welcomed by a warm, friendly staff. Everyone at the winery is proud of their product and it shows. It is what Napa wineries used to be. Don't miss the dipping oil.

“One of Our Favorite Wineries!!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We recently visited Vincent Arroyo based on a recommendation from our Innkeeper. (Jaime at the Inn on First) We had an amazing experience! The winery grounds were beautiful. Sam was our host and he was very informative about the winery including the history and the processes they use to make great wines. He even walked us out to the vineyards to pick some grapes and educate us about the different types of leaves for each grape!

Then came the tastings. We loved all the wines we tasted! Some of our favorites were the 2009 Bodega, 2009 Nameless, 2010 Petite Sirah, both the Rattlesnake Acres and Greenwood Ranch. I really could list all their wines, as they were all great! This is now one of our favorite wineries! We will be ordering wines from Vincent Arroyo for a long time!

We also had a picnic lunch there on the property in a quaint little area that was perfect! The area was shaded with large trees and beautiful flowers.

We even got to hang out with Bodega and J.J., the winery dogs. They were very friendly and welcoming to us, and all of the other visitors that walked thru the front doors.

Our most favorite thing about this winery is it’s small, family appeal. While we were touring and learning about their processes, Vincent was out back crushing grapes. Can’t wait to come back!

“A great Winery to visit to learn the process of wine making”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

A great tour given by very knowledgeable and funny staff. Get the Canadian "Ted" to give the tour, he was hilarious and super friendly. The wine tasting area is right in the heart of the working floor, so there was lots of action going on when we were there. The tour also involved walking through the back and for such a short visit the information passed on to a lay person was excellent. And the bonus was trying some very great wines and a fantastic port! Make sure you make a reservation to get into to see this winery, you wont be disappointed.
