This was delightful. We spent almost an hour and a half with our host, Todd, in a beautiful room with a fantastic view enjoying delicious wines. Todd was well prepared with a variety of options and even gave us a taste of a wine not on our tasting list. The explanations were informative and the atmosphere was relaxed and fun. Every wine we tasted was great! Plan ahead, enjoy the wines and the people.

A product of superior quality, also offers the possibility of enjoying carefully designed gardens. Very nice to taste and buy!

Quite surprised to be writing this glowing review. Stopped at Arista to accommodate our travelling companions, who had previously visited. I was skeptical because of limited wine selections (pinots and chardonnays - that's it). Boy, was I wrong about this place. This was one the best tasting experiences I've had anywhere. Because the winery and tasting room are small, they only take reservations for tastings. Maximum of 8 people at the tasting bar, so we felt like we were being personally attended to at all times. Still not big fan of pinots, if being honest, but these were actually pretty good. Loved the chardonnay and took a bottle home with me. The grounds are stunningly beautiful. Pristine Japanese garden behind winery with breathtaking view of Mount St. Helena. Adjacent vineyards and gardens were well worth the short stroll up the hill from the tasting room. Tasting fees waved if 2 bottles of wine purchased. Highest recommendation.

We were late for our appointment but called before to let them know...when we showed up the staff, Kerry in particular, was unaccommodating and unwelcoming. We asked if they wanted us to leave (and pay for the tasting) and they declined but seemed annoyed with us the whole time. Neal, our server, was nice. They seemed a little too big for their britches. There are other wineries.

First of all, their garden is amazing - it's comfortable, well maintained and absolutely lovely. Get a glass and sit down to enjoy the peacefulness, then go inside and buy some wine to take home. We didn't realize they only take reservations for tastings and we hadn't made any so will have to wait until next time for that. But at the recommendation of a friend, I bought a couple of bottles of their 2015 Zinfandel - expensive for the area at $60/bottle but it will age well and we'll use it for some special occasions.
