Inspired by the great traditions of Burgundian winemaking, Joseph Davis has been making Arcadian Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah in California's Central Coast region since 1996. Using French artisan methods and hands-on vineyard management, Joe Davis’s Arcadian label consistently receives high marks from the world's most respected wine writers. Joe Davis is straightforward, frank and tells it like it is, or at least as he sees it. Davis’s time in Burgundy, and in particular the year he spent at Domaine Dujac, remains a deeply formative experience. One of the many unique attributes of the Arcadian wines is that they are released with several years of bottle age, as opposed to the majority of Central Coast wines, which are released as soon as they are bottled. The Arcadian Pinots and Syrahs are made with a high percentage of stems, typically in the 80-100% range.

“At Arcadian, we strive to create wine that fully expresses the distinct characteristics of each vineyard and California's Central Coast region. y controlling yields from these vineyards and keeping them very low (we farm our Pinot Noir to 2-2.5 tons to the acre), we increase grape quality. The resulting wine speaks more about where it came from than about the hands that made it. This "somewhereness" vs. "someoneness" concept appeals to us because we believe the best wine is made more in the vineyard than in the winery.”
