Barrel Select invited members for an afternoon with Fritz Hatton, owner of ultra-premium Napa winery, Arietta.
Arietta is the name given by Fritz and Caren Hatton for wines born of a passion for music. Fritz has over 3 decades of experience in the fine and rare wine business, and is a leading wine auctioneer in the USA. This ultra-premium winery specializes in limited production Bordeaux-style blends. Celebrated American winemaker, Andy Erickson (formerly of Napa cult Cab producer Screaming Eagle), crafts Arietta wines from carefully chosen, cooler climate vineyard blocks in Napa. Arietta, meaning short aria or art song, is a name that expresses the notion that both wine and song should "take flight," in the course of which the qualities of balance, vibrancy, depth, overtones, and complexity resonate and give us a sense of exaltation.
Fritz Hatton - owner of Arietta - was on-hand to talk about and pour Napa Valley wines worth singing about.
