For those who are unfamiliar with Arneis, it is an ancient variety originating from the Piedmont region of Italy, in the area of Roero, near Alba. Arneis was mentioned in 15th century documents and continued to grow until the wine-growing recession in France and a depopulation within the region between World War 1 and 2. Fortunately a few producers wanted to re-establish white grapes in Piedmont, which had become a predominately a red wine region.The name "Arneis" means little rascals, awkward, difficult one, unreliable and short tempered. Our Arneis seems to be much more compliant with few probelms.
