    Hard to imagine this place not having a slam dunk 5 star rating. Everything about this winery is great. The grounds are well kept, hosts are friendly and knowledgeable, and the wines are approachable ...  more »

    Dave has extensive knowledge of their products and is very friendly and well spoken. Dog friendly of course! Most important is the outstanding quality of the wine. This is a must do winery at any cost. The price point is well below the quality and value of the wine.

    I love this place lots of nice spots to sit outside. Very popular, so much they will start to require appointments for visits. I guess it will allow them to keep the experience for patrons more intimate. The wines are great! All in all just wonderful. Wish i could visit more often than I am able. If you stop by plan to make appointments starting 2017 and take a picnic basket.

    Amazing Wines and very friendly staff. The Pinots are the best I have ever had. Made our trip to Healdsburg. Amazing beautiful grounds.

    Wow, this was the best experience we had while in Sonoma. We buy wine that is between $30-70. This place had excellent pinos and zins. No wine club here.. Plan to get on the list and you can buy in several months. This was some of the greatest wine I've tried thus far. Dave was, by far, the most educative and happy individual we've encountered thus far. Only do tastings with him. EXCELLENT!!

    Of the 10 wineries we visited on our trip to Sonoma this fall, Arista stood out as the hands-down favorite amongst a varied group of 6 people. Impressive, eh? STAFF: 5 stars. On arriving, a staffer happily welcomed us. He told us that our scheduled tasting would start on time in a few minutes and while waiting for us to walk around and enjoy the Japanese tea garden. Our host and his intern were stellar, hanging with our raucous personalities yet still being very professional and courteous. He explained each wine without being snobbish or condescending. As we approached closing time, another staff member every-so-kindly approached us to tell us "While you can't stay here, you don't have to go home." Yes, we know, time to leave. Thanks for a stellar wine tasting experience. FACILITY: 5 stars. We had a private tasting in a small gazebo out back. The woodwork was phenomenal. The Japanese tea garden landscaping breathtaking. This was the only winery that made us feel comfortable enough to stay and enjoy another bottle of wine on site. WINE: 5 stars. Every bottle was great. Some were greater than others. In the end, we bought several bottles to cellar and perhaps a few to drink sooner. I drank what is (in my opinion) THE BEST Pinot Noir that has every touched my lips. It was a near-religious experience. Phenomenal.
