Aratas Wine is located in Napa, California, and was founded by brothers John and Mickey Chohany. Their small, 1.8 acre estate vineyard in the Oak Knoll AVA is planted on alluvial gravel and clay loam and solely to Petite Sirah. Winemaker Mike Drash is highly regarded, prior to Aratas, he was the winemaker for Luna, Far Niente, DeLoach and Jordan Winery. The name Aratas is an homage to the Chohany’s Hungarian heritage.
Technical notes
The fruit was fermented naturally in small open-top fermentation tanks and aged for two years in French and Hungarian oak barrels. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
