Arbios Cellars/Praxis Cellars is a small Sonoma County family wine business. Bill Arbios makes the wine; his wife, Susan handles much of the rest including direct sales. Bill has been a wine maker for 40 years and enjoyed a successful career with many prominent wineries (including Lyeth, Fieldstone and Jarvis), but 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. When Susan & Bill married in 1999, she signed on to the dream. Arbios Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is their flagship wine and the four Praxis wines are priced for more “every day” drinking.
“Locals” is a cooperative tasting room in Geyserville off Highway 101 about 80 miles North of the Golden Gate Bridge – at the stop sign in town. Our Arbios & Praxis wines and those of nine other small, local producers are poured at no charge every day. The tasting room is open daily from 11am-6pm; 707-857-4900; or www.tastelocalwines.com
