The human instinct for the pursuit of excellence in all matters is well established. We understand the writer who toils at their desk for a lifetime, seeking to pen the perfect novel that captures the intricacies of the human condition. We can empathize with the chef who fine tunes a dish for decades before it is finally a masterpiece. We admire the cellist who daily practices their instrument for many grueling hours attempting mastery of a single Bach Cello Suite. It is no different with winemakers in their pursuit of excellence in a bottle. Each harvest presents a new opportunity to create greatness. Every year is a welcome chance to attempt perfection. The Greek word Arete, (pronounced ah-reh-‘tay), has no true translation to English, but the closest understanding we have of the word, is the idea of excellence in all things. The traditional assemblage of Arete is a blend from multiple blocks on the Estate dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a wine of power, grace and character that unapologetically says “I am Cabernet.” Join us in celebrating this humble pursuit of excellence!
