The Sensibilities of Harlan Estate
One of the greatest pianists of all time, Vladimir Horowitz, once said: “It took me a lifetime to understand that simplicity is power in its strongest form.”
Simplicity is endurance, tenacity, and perseverance.
In this era of change, with reams of information readily available at our fingertips, most of us are easily swayed by hearsay—the latest and the greatest of all things in vogue. Terms such as “cult wine” are popularized by mainstream media, proliferated by the Internet. Being one of the first top-tier Californian fine wine producers, Harlan Estate chose to remain aloof from the fray of the “cult” movement of the early 1990s, its founders working quietly, like hermits, in the western hills of Oakville, California, rather than clamoring to attract attention. “Grace is unearthed from within rather than exposed.” Harlan Estate always impresses with a composed persona: seemingly simple yet engaging with poise and charm.
