 Chandelle Winery is located in the wine country of Sonoma, California, about an hour north of San Francisco. For over 25 years, we have been owned and operated by the Arnold Family.

The Chandelle style is smooth, full of rich flavors with an easy, long finish. In recent years, we added a group of singular and intriguing wines we call Estraié.

Our wines are fun and full of playful adventure. Perfect for starting off a tall tale or two or sharing at your next rendezvous.

Our new book is now available.
Written by Col. Bruce Arnold with
Robert Bruce Arnold, this is a bold, noir thriller 
set in 1967-68 Saigon. For mature readers.

A "chandelle" is an old flying maneuver term that winery
co-founder founder Bruce Arnold remembered hearing his father and early aviators use. See below for a diagram.

The Arnold Family's story has been intertwined with the history of aviation since 1911.
Check out the About Us section for pictures and more information.

Cheers! Robert and Kathy Arnold

What's a Chandelle?

chandelle_planeChandelle: (shan-dell) an aviation term used to describe a 180-degree change in direction and an increase in altitude. This maneuver is a classic test of aircraft performance and pilot skill. As in wine making, it requires a smooth touch on the "stick and rudder." World War I French aviators perfected the maneuver and described it as monter en chandelle, or "to climb around a candle."
