Join us in welcoming Susan Arbioswith Arbios Cellarsto The Wine CellarWednesday, 5 -7 pmArbios Cellars/Praxis Cellars is a small Sonoma County family wine business. Bill Arbios makes the wine; his wife, Susan handles much of the rest. Bill enjoyed a successful career with many prominent wineries over the last 35 years, but he felt somewhat restricted working for large wineries and yearned for his own roots. With the creation of Arbios Cellars in 1993 and Praxis Cellars in 2000, his dream of expressing his vision and creating something lasting was realized. Arbios Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is their flagship wine and the five Praxis wines are priced for more "every day" drinkingGlinda with Wine Source will be pouring this selection from their portfolioPraxis Viognier '10Praxis Dry Syrah Rose '08Praxis Alexander Valley Merlot '07Praxis Pinot Noir '08Praxis Lagrein '07Arbios Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon '06

Within this slender area, a few subappellations have demonstrated that they can produce superior Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. By selecting top vineyards in these subappellations, Provenance Vineyards showcases the unique personalities of Napa Valley's best growing regions.
