Family owned and operated, from 1986 to 2017, Chandelle offered medal winning wines from Sonoma and Napa, eacb bottle featuring full color aviation art by many of top artists in the genre. The idea was conceived by Robert Arnold and his parents, Bruce and Barbara. The Arnold Family’s story is bound up with that of the rise of aviation in America since 1911.
Located north of San Francisco, in the heart of Northern California’s Wine Country, Chandelle takes it’s name from 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 requiring a smooth touch on the stick and rudder. Retiring from the wine business, Chandelle has a limited supply of its famous Spirit of Flight aviation art labels and is offering them in a handsome series of custom framed and shelf display art decor as well as the first in a series of books written by Bruce and Robert Arnold.
