About Axios: 

A powerhouse collaboration between proprietor Gus Kalaris and winemaker Bob Egelhoff, Axios is a super premium Cabernet Sauvignon of Napa Valley "cult" status.  Axios, meaning worthy in Greek, reflects Gus' vision to craft a wine of Bordeaux influence that represents the richness of its' Napa Valley origin.  This wine was proudly served at a reception hosted by President Bush at The White House in March of 2002.Worthy is the second label of Axios - the super premium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Axios is the the Greek word for worthy.

Worthy’s Cabernet Sauvignon dominated Bordeaux blend  enjoyed overnight success when it stormed into the market in 2001.  Over the years Worthy has been recognized as a household name in cult wines.

The label for Truth was the inspiration behind this wine's name.  Looking at one's own reflection unveils the truth.  This intriguing label was proudly displayed at the SFMOMA's exhibition "How Wine Became Modern" in 2010-2011.  Beyond the packaging you will find an outstanding bistro style wine at a value price point.”
