Our house has long been devoted to art – painting, photography, sculpture, music. We’ve been privileged over the years to make visual expression a family business. With Art House wines, we expand that experience to our other favorite endeavor – making great wine.
We follow old world methods to as naturally as possible, allow our wines to express their true character. The result: depth of aroma and flavor, outstanding structure that allows the wine to age, and the richness and acidity that makes our wines perfect with food.
Our roots are firmly planted in the soils of the Carneros. That weird and wonderful region at the south end of the Napa Valley, known for its cool air, bending winds, and the slow and steady cycle of sun, moon and fog. This is a wine region like no other. Its unique climate offers the perfect space for creating intuitively expressive wines.
Art and words will never offer the same experience. People put words on art seeking a more familiar hook – language – as a way to understand what is really a non-verbal experience. Great art resonates at a deeper level. And when it touches you, you know it.
So it is with wine. We may experience it differently, and we may use different words to describe it, but when a great wine touches you, it’s a deep and memorable experience.
