Arietta was founded by Fritz Hatton and his wife along with John Kongsgaard, partners with a shared passion for both wine and classical music, thus the moniker.
Various Bordeaux style blends are now made by Andy Erickson sourcing grapes from some of Napa’s best sites, including a sauvignon blanc from Sonoma Mountains blended with sémillon from Carneros.
Arietta’s label features the notes of Beethoven’s Arietta movement from his last Piano Sonata, Opus 111. Like great pieces of music, The Hattons believe wine should take you on a journey and "sing’ to you. Luckily, their wines have ample resonance with depth of fruit, complexity, and textural richness.
