BOW & ARROW is a wine producer based in Portland, Oregon, USA.

GRAPE PURCHASES | They buy in grapes eg. Pinot Noir, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, and Melon de Bourgogne – all typical Loire Valley grapes. Only Willamette Valley fruit. Long-term relationships. We are a “scrappy negociant” Scott told me at the Real Wine Fair in Tobacco Dock 17-18th April 2016.
