Mentions in the Media

December 29, 2011



We got a couple of nice mentions in various wine columns this week!

First up, wine writer Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle visited us here in Sonoma Valley a little while back, and here’s what he had to say,

“Most inspiring wine person: Richard Arrowood, who completed his 46th harvest as a winemaker in October, insisted he couldn’t wait for No. 47. After all these years, he still felt like a kid in the candy store when he was in the vineyards or the cellar. Arrowood and his wife, Alis, own Amapola Creek Winery just below the famous Monte Rosso Vineyard near Sonoma. He made his reputation at Chateau St. Jean (1974-90) before founding Arrowood Winery (1985-2010).” (full article)

Also, Fred Tasker of the Miami Herald had these kind words for our 2008 Monte Rosso Zinfandel,

“2008 Amapola Creek “Vinas Antiguas” Zinfandel, Monte Rosso Vineyard, Sonoma Valley: powerful flavors of black raspberries and cloves, full-bodied, very rich, smooth; $30. This is a zin like they used to make them: unsubtle, in-your-face, a hearty 15.1 percent alcohol — wonderful.” (full article)

FYI, that 2008 Monte Rosso Zinfandel is close to being sold out!

We really take a lot of effort to turn out the best product we can here at Amapola Creek, so it’s nice to hear such pleasant things back from the news media.
