A brief history

The five acre Arrow&Branch Estate Vineyard is tucked into an area northeast of the City of Napa, on a slice of hallowed land known as Tulocay, which is part of the larger American Viticultural Area (AVA) of Coombsville. Tulocay refers to the Native American villagers who once inhabited this small valley. Today, the horseshoe-shaped valley of Tulocay describes a viticultural zone, distinct from its neighbors in Napa County in a number of important ways. Like Carneros, its neighbor to the south, Tulocay benefits from the cooling breezes drawn in through the Golden Gate. It is in Tulocay, however, that the morning fog burns off much sooner, and cool breezes sweep through the vineyard on late summer afternoons, slowing the ripening and encouraging flavor and character development in the grapes. This microclimate, combined with its Coombs Gravelly Loam soils, is quite distinct from both the valley floor and mountain appellations of the Napa Valley.; Besides our own vineyard, we purchase Napa's highest quality grapes from Dr. Crane, Stagecoach, Sodaro, Meteor, Missouri Hopper, Cuvaison vineyards and other important properties in the valley.

The Arrow&Branch name pays homage to the Contursi Family’s success in the rare coin business, U.S. coinage and Americana. Found on the reverse of most United States coinage is an eagle holding arrows and an olive branch in its talons. This design signifies the United States as a peace-loving nation and country’s ability to defend itself if that peace and freedom should be compromised.

Arrow&Branch exists to showcase Napa Valley’s finest vineyard sites and the wines that come from them. We source our fruit from unique and exquisite vineyard sites, such as Vine Hill Ranch, Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Arrow&Branch, Lewelling and Stagecoach. These vineyards are all noted for having exceptional Napa Valley terroir. We seek to make wines with precision, power and elegance, but most importantly, true to the vineyards they come from.

Arrow&Branch Sauvignon Blanc "Stagecoach Vineyard"® Bottle Preview
Arrow&BranchSauvignon Blanc "Stagecoach Vineyard"®

“With an expressive bouquet of candied lime leaf, fresh blossoms, and white peach, this wine exudes freshness and perfectly ripe fruits. The texture offers a core of citrus-laced acidity that is balanced by a sense of creaminess achieved by the winemaking technique of sur lie aging. Highly exuberant in flavor, this wine finishes long with precision and minerality.” -Jennifer Williams, Arrow&Branch Winemaker

Arrow&Branch Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer "Dr. Crane Vineyard" Bottle Preview
Arrow&BranchCabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer "Dr. Crane Vineyard"

“Reminding me of a great vintage of La Mission Haut Brion, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard offers a stunning bouquet of blackcurrants, tobacco gravelly earth, chocolate, and lead pencil. Just pure class, with full-body, ultra-fine tannins, and awesome purity and elegance, it’s a stunning achievement in 2017. It’s going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and cruise into cool cellars for over two decades.” -Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Critic, 98 Points

Arrow&Branch Red Wine "Right Bank Blend" Bottle Preview
Arrow&BranchRed Wine "Right Bank Blend"

“The 2017 Red Wine checks in as 45% Cabernet Franc, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, sourced from sites in Coombsville, St. Helena, and Atlas Peak, that spent 20 months in 75% new French Oak. It’s another juicy, incredibly pure, delicious effort, offering loads of blue fruits, kirsch liqueur, violets, white flowers, and spice as well as full-bodied richness, a seamless, plump texture, and a great finish. It has a wonderful floral character, perfect balance, and a great finish. Drink it any time over the coming 15-20 years. -Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Critic

Arrow&Branch Cabernet Sauvignon "Black Label" Bottle Preview
Arrow&BranchCabernet Sauvignon "Black Label"

“Coming from the Lewelling, Criscione and Beckstoffer Dr. Crane vineyards, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 65% new French oak. It has deep garnet-purple color and delivers exuberant black cherries, ripe plums and crème de cassis notes with nuances of fallen leaves, pencil lead and charcoal plus a touch of dried herbs. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, it packs in the black fruit and earthy layers, finishing with a mineral kick.” -Lisa Perrotti Brown, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Arrow&Branch Cabernet Sauvignon "Vine Hill Ranch Vineyard" Bottle Preview
Arrow&BranchCabernet Sauvignon "Vine Hill Ranch Vineyard"

“From a site tucked into the most westerly section of the valley on the western edge of Oakville, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Vine Hill Ranch Vineyard is more backward and reserved, but it will probably merit a triple-digit score at maturity. Notes of blackcurrants, coffee beans, caramelized blueberries, and dark chocolate give way to a full-bodied, powerful 2018 that has lots of tannins but the mid-palate, concentration, and balance to handle them. Hide bottles for a least 5-7 years.” -Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Critic | 98+ Points

“Our inaugural release of Rosé of Cabernet Franc offers a complex nose of fresh raspberry, rose petal, and thyme. On the palette is a refreshing interplay of acidity and juicy red fruits that signals springtime is here. With notable concentration and depth, we are thrilled to add this lovely wine to our portfolio.” -Jennifer Williams, Arrow&Branch Winemaker
