  • About this winery

    Duncan Arnot Meyers grew up around wine. His father's best friend was Bernard Portet of Clos du Val, and much of Duncan's youth was spent in Napa Valley. He was mentored by John Kongsgaard and worked side by side with Pax Malhe, Northern California's cult syrah specialist, until June 2008. The "Roberts" in Arnot-Roberts, is Nathan Lee Roberts, second generation master cooper, whose grandmother is Margot Biever Mondavi; Nathan's mother Annie Roberts was executive chef at Robert Mondavi Winery....

    The 2017 Pinot Noir Peter Martin Ray Vineyard is superb. Bright, focused and wonderfully energetic, the 2017 is simply magnificent. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, crushed rocks, blood orange and mint are all beautifully delineated. There is a real sense of energy here that is compelling. At times, the Peter Martin Ray shows a more somber side. It is that push and pull of elements that makes the 2017 so alluring.
