At Arborum, grape growing and winemaking are collaborative efforts. To capture the unique character of the vineyard takes a common vision shared by everyone on our team, in the field, in the cellar, and at the helm.
We think of winemaking as a year-round pursuit. We strive to bring the vineyard into balance, from winter pruning to autumn harvest, allowing just enough stress on the vines to produce wines of depth and structure, with the right amount of care to move the vineyard into the next season even stronger than before.
Great vineyards have a story to tell.
Andy Erickson Winemaker
“By carefully monitoring the fruit during the growing season, harvesting at just the right time, and ushering the fruit through fermentation, aging, and bottling, we’re hoping to capture the spirit of the vineyard in the bottle,” notes winemaker Andy Erickson. “This is very important, because great vineyards have a story to tell.”
From planting to pruning and harvest to bottle, we make wine that allows our vineyard to shine. The wine you’ll pour is the manifestation of all of our activities, season after season, year after year.
