...bright, focused and full of energy. Lees stirring brings out textural richness... Hints of tropical fruit, tangerine oil and apricot add layers of complexity.

...bouquet of lemon curd, dried pineapple, crushed stone-like minerality, and white flowers. This carries to a medium-bodied, richer style of Sauvignon Blanc with good mid-palate concentration, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish.



Arietta was founded in 1996 by wine specialist and auctioneer Fritz Hatton, his wife Caren and winemaker John Kongsgaard and his wife Maggie. Starting with a small block of vineyards on the Hudson Ranch in Napa/Carneros, Arietta has added other vineyards in the decades since then. The label features a few bars of the musical manuscript of Beethoven’s Arietta movement from his last piano sonata, which was Opus 111. Arietta’s founders are music lovers. Andy Erickson is the winemaker today and estate produces Bordeaux style blends, including a white wine.
