Praxis Cellars - Sonoma County

Gold Plus! selection - Only 600 cases produced

Praxis makes perfect!’ Praxis Cellars is a small Sonoma County family winery that was founded by Bill Arbios and his wife Susan in 2000, seven years after they established their first winery brand, the reputable Arbios Cellars. Praxis is derived from the Greek word for practice, as a doctor or lawyer practices his craft. The word was also a pre-Arts and Crafts philosophy in Europe emphasizing the importance of striving for perfection, while knowing that it will never be achieved. It has been a fitting name for the wine label, as it offers Bill Arbios the opportunity to ‘practice’ his craft with different wine varietals from various wine regions in California. Praxis wines are never blended, and instead are intended to showcase specific varietals from single vineyards. Today, the rather successful sister labels offer an incredibly distinctive and exciting portfolio of wines produced from California’s top wine regions.

Bill Arbios has now been a winemaker for over 40 years, and has enjoyed a rewarding winemaking career with many prominent wineries, including Lyeth, Fieldstone and Jarvis. While they were wonderful opportunities, he always felt somewhat restricted working for large wineries and yearned for his own roots. With the creation of Arbios Cellars and Praxis Cellars, Bill’s dream of expressing his own vision and creating something lasting is now being realized. While Bill handles the role of winemaker, his wife Susan is responsible for much of the business side, including direct sales. Together, they’ve earned great respect in the industry and couldn’t be happier for Arbios and Praxis’ cult status success.
