Winemaking

Since the founding of Arrowood over 25 years ago, the philosophy has been simple: produce classic varietal wines with grapes grown exclusively in Sonoma County's diverse climates, with as little intervention as possible.

Arrowood Winemaker and Sonoma County native, Heidi von der Mehden, continues this winemaking approach. Joining the winery in 2007, Heidi worked under founder Richard Arrowood’s mentorship for three years, before being named head Winemaker in 2010.

“I strive to produce honest, accurate, pleasing wines that stand the test of time. No guesswork, no fads, just well-reasoned farming and winemaking techniques.” - Heidi von der Mehden
