Tournesol Winery

Tournesole_Anne and Bob 2

Anne and Bob Arns envisioned a small vineyard estate focusing on Bordeaux varietals since their wedding over 40 years ago. With a keen interest in wine, they were both very inspired by the now famous "Judgment of Paris" tasting that took place in 1976, when California wines were rated above their French counterparts. The Arns look back at that hallmark year as the beginning of their quest to produce world-class wine. In 1998, they purchased their dream Napa Valley property and planted 15 acres the following year. They have a passion for sharing food and wine with friends and family and enjoy their agricultural connection to the earth. 

Tournesol wine estate is located in the Coombsville AVA of Napa Valley. Bob and Anne Arns planted 15 acres of Bordeaux varietals on a gently sloping bench 300 feet above the valley floor. Tournesol vineyard practices follow principles of sustainability and organic farming, and the property is certified Napa Green. Tournesol vines enjoy perfect exposure to the sun with cool breezes from San Francisco Bay providing an ideal growing climate. The Arns strive to produce the finest estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux style blends while being responsible stewards of the land.
