Homebound With Our Spring Release

Homebound With Our Spring Release

By: Fritz and Caron Hatton

Arietta White Wine On the White Keys 2018

We recognize that many of you are temporarily homebound, as we are, and wish you safe passage through the rough waters caused by the unwelcome spread of Covid-19.

An undiminished bright star during this period is our ability to enjoy wine at home. Caren and I have had a glass (or two) Arietta On The White Keys from the glorious 2018 vintage almost every night for the last two weeks.  It’s irresistible.  So we are declaring that Spring has sprung and recommend that you click here to purchase the new 2018 Arietta White Keys without delay.

To promote immediate and recurring gratification, we will pick up shipping costs on full case purchases, and will ship your wine the week following your purchase (unless otherwise requested).

With the advent of warmer weather Jessica welcomes visitors to the winery with a glass of Rosie’s Rosé.  Since that is not possible until the threat of the virus subsides, we are offering to you for shipment now the Arietta Rosie’s Rosé 2019, which we bottled last week.  This is our fourth vintage of Arietta Rosie’s Rosé, and Associate Winemaker Patrick Nyeholt, who has crafted our Rosé from the outset, hit the bull’s eye for color, balance, and texture.  Only three barrels made, first come first served.

Over the weekend several of our Arietta subscribers have posted or texted pictures of bottles of Ariettas—some of them early vintages—that they were enjoying.  We encourage you to do the same.  Please open some of the Arietta bottles that you have been saving, and let us have your impressions. You can share and follow along on social media via the Arietta Facebook and Instagram accounts.

We are most appreciative of your support for our family winery as we approach our 25th anniversary, and look forward to seeing you in person as soon as conditions permit.

Carpe diem, carpe vinum.
