Armida Winery


Since 1994, owners Steve and Bruce Cousins- operators, brothers and partners- have transformed Armida Winery  from a quiet producer of good wines into a much livelier place focusing on artisan, single-vineyard wines from the top growers in Sonoma Valley.

We hand-craft over ten different wines and feature some of the best vineyards in California, including Maple Vineyards Zinfandel and Maple Vineyards Tina’s Block (perhaps California’s BEST Zinfandel vineyard), Durell Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Parmelee-Hill Pinot and Zinfandel, Bacigalupi Pinot Noir, Castelli Knight Pinot Noir, and Dutton Chardonnay.  From our seven-acre estate vineyard we produce Il Campo (“Field Blend”), a delicious combination of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. 

While we make seriously great wine the focus at Armida is FUN!, which is one of the reasons we also produce PoiZin (Zinfandel) “The Wine to Die for,” and ANTIDOTE (Pinot Grigio).  We invite you to the winery to try our wines and our warm, friendly hospitality.  If so inclined you might want to bring along lunch or an early dinner to enjoy on the large patio as you take in the hillside views of the Russian River Valley, or perhaps play Bocce Ball on the court between the patio and the pond.

Beginning in June, 2011, we are remodeling and dramatically expanding the hospitality areas of the winery. We are creating a number of intimate venues, inside and outside, for winemaker dinners, food and wine pairings, picnics and private tastings.  Many of these areas will be exclusive to wine club members.  We are quite excited about these changes and will post updates and pictures as the work begins.

We hope to see you soon!
