The Arietta Tasting Experience

We are grateful to have the opportunity to produce our wines and host our subscribers for tastings at the state-of-the-art and beautifully appointed Hudson Winery.  Arietta has purchased grapes from the Hudson Ranch since our very first vintage in 1996, when we blended Cabernet Franc from the Hudson H Block Cabernet Franc with Merlot to create 290 cases of Arietta Red Wine, now called Arietta Red Wine H Block Hudson Vineyards.

Our tastings offer a glimpse into the world of making super-premium, small production wines. Just steps away from the crush pad, depending on the time of the year, you will experience the winery at work. Our tasting space offers beautiful views of Lake Larry and the gardens that surround it and the winery.

Enjoy tasting our current release wines hosted by members of the Arietta team including proprietors, Fritz Hatton or Caren Frutig Hatton, our Director of Sales & Hospitality, Sara Hitchcock, and occasionally, our winemakers! Either way, you can expect a fun and personal experience, complete with the lore and history of Arietta.

We offer three tasting experiences:

  • The Classic Portfolio Tasting.  Guests taste six current release Arietta wines, both red and white, covering the core of the Arietta wine portfolio.  Tasting fee is $100 per person, with one tasting fee credited per three bottles purchased.  Tastings are private by appointment in advance Tuesday through Saturday 10am-3om.  Allow 60-90 minutes.
  • The Reserve Wine Tasting (new).  This is a tasting of six Arietta Reserve and Library wines, and can be customized to a degree with 72 hours advance notice.  Small bites such as cheese and charcuterie included. Tasting fee is $225 per person, with one tasting fee waived per six bottles purchased.  Allow 90 minutes.
  • The Generations Tasting.  An Arietta portfolio tasting oriented to “next gen” family members of subscribers interested in wine.  Same fee as the Classic Portfolio Tasting, except fee waived for adult children of subscribers over the age of 21.

Reservations are required. Please fill out the form below.

Private Tasting in Your Home: Zoom is a convenient way to enjoy an Arietta tasting guided by a member of the Arietta team. Additionally, if you would like to host an Arietta tasting dinner for your wine loving friends, and have an Arietta team member on hand in person to present the wines, we may be able to make that happen!  Please contact us at
