Although it's neither as famous nor as old as some of its neighbors, Arrowood produces well-regarded wines, especially the Chardonnays, Syrahs, and age-worthy Cabernets. Except on summer weekends and at harvesttime, the pace here can be more relaxing, too. A wraparound porch with wicker chairs invites you to linger outside the tasting room, built to resemble a New England farmhouse. If you're more interested in lounging than a full-on tasting, you can buy a glass of wine
to enjoy outside. Winery tours conclude with a seated tasting; there's also a tasting ($35) that pairs the signature wines with locally made gourmet cheeses.

Upon the recommendation of our favorite local wine merchant, we toured Arrowood and were delighted with the experience. The facilites were impeccably maintained & the tour was facinating. Unlike many other wineries of its size (small), Arrowood has its own bottling facilities. The tasting was memorable, was the attentiveness of our tour guide. We highly recommend visiting this beautiful vineyard.
