Arista Vineyards or an Organic Farm. Chardonnay or a glass of milk…


photo Arista Winery is a family owned business based in Healdsburg, but their estate vineyards are located in the scenic Russian River Valley. 30 of their 110 acres in this area are planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. It is a perfectly tranquil, beautiful setting for an afternoon sojourn, even for a teetotaler. The idyllic views are enough to make this a worthwhile destination. photo_2 photo_5
