Wine Details

Pours a pretty, crystalline color that’s accentuated by pristine aromatics of honeysuckle blossom, white pepper, melon, and apple skins that leap out of the glass. Terrific tension and incredible structure on the palate complement the citrus fruit and chalky acidity. A clean, mouthwatering finish leaves you undoubtedly reaching for the next sip – or pour. An absolutely delicious, crisp wine that will be the perfect accoutrement to Spring and will be best shared with your die-hard Sauvignon Blanc friends.

Cam Confidential

Literally meaning “little rascal” in Piemontese, this grape was named for its unpredictable ripening and difficulty to grow. Planted for centuries in Italy’s Piedmont region, Arneis has nowadays become quite fashionable amongst white wine connoisseurs and Italophiles alike. On this side of the pond, Arneis is primarily grown in Sonoma and the Willamette Valley. Lot 589 is an absolutely mouthwatering introduction to this delicious Italian grape.

Sourced from a winery in Carneros that almost exclusively produces small-batch releases, this wine was whole cluster pressed and fermented at low temperature in 100% stainless to maintain aromatic qualities and brightness of fruit. With over six months in bottle, this wine has come together beautifully, delivering a seamless transition from nose to palate.

Our first Arneis and very very happy. We’ve made multiple orders of this for our hot afternoon deck time! We do not like sweet wines and this is perfect for our tastes.

Great deal for a light, refreshing wine that is perfect for patio drinking. Will definitely buy more to keep on hand for impromptu outdoor get-togethers with friends.

This has a pleasant melon and citrus finish that is crisp and clean.
It left the three of us wanting more.

Tropical fruit, white flower and flint on the nose with a slight saltine quality to it. Lively palate that has a sort of apple crispness with length.

A solid table wine. Great nose with stone fruit and a hint of citrus which I loved. But just not quite up there as some of the good Sauv Blancs that you can pick up here. Still, it's great value considering the price

A nice wine, but handicapped due to the grapes basic nice 'drinkability' but nothing noteworthy.
A decent wine to quaff, decent value, nice for people (my guests) who do not want a demanding bottle.
It is not up to a good Sauv. Blanc, or good Sancerre. But a nice wine.

I had never heard of Arneis until this one, and am always game for trying something new. It's lean and astringent, and reminds me more of citrusy Pinot Grigio than any Sauvignon Blanc I know. Interestingly, it presents with floral nose like an Angevine. I love this super-chilled on the hottest summer days - like today!

I really enjoyed this wine. It was zesty and crisp. Will definitely reorder.

This is not like a CA Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. It's on the Pinot Grigio side of life, but with a very different taste. It's crisp, for sure, with an elegant nose. I get a very apricot taste from it. It has a fizzy quality to it, but it isn't sparkling wine. All in all, a nice summer wine. I prefer other varietals, but there is nothing wrong with this choice.
