Arrowood enologist, Noel Hinojosa, grew up in Washington state’s Yakima Valley. Surrounded by orchards, vineyards, and hops, his childhood was spent around and working in agriculture. He trained hop vines in the spring, and summers were spent picking cherries as soon as school let out. This was followed by apricot harvest, vineyard leafing, and finally apple harvest in the early fall.
If your friends and family know that you love wine, odds are good that you have been the recipient of several (if not more) wine aerators over the years. And if you’re like us here at Arrowood, most of those gadgets are unused and sitting in a box somewhere near your wine collection.
Arrowood Winery is famous for Cabernet Sauvignon, but when hot summer weather comes, I like to reach for white wines, and so do our wine club members and fans. I only make a very small quantity of white wine -- about 500 cases a year.
