Arkenstone Wines


We discovered Arkenstone wine at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bistro in Yountville, California in late September 2010.  It was their barrel selection and the staff was very excited about it.  The wines were delicious, rich and full of grape.  The next day we emailed the winery for an appointment to taste more.  They graciously accommodated us right away.  The main winery is still under construction.  We were met by Susan Krausz, who owns the winery with her husband Ron.  We tasted an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc, complex and full of fruit overtones.  Their blended red was just incredible, with supple tannins and a satiny mouthfeel.  These winemakers are truly artisans and are making some outstanding wine.
