Our family has been crafting world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa and Sonoma's finest vineyards since 1933. Our founder Louis M. Martini started with this simple premise: the best grapes make the best wines. Today, this tradition carries on at our historic winery in the Napa Valley with a range of unforgettable Cabernet Sauvignon wines that celebrate Cabernet’s indelible combination of power and structure married with elegance, grace and finesse.

Inspired by "Apotheca", a mysterious place where wine was blended and stored in the Ancient Times, the wines of Apothic are truly unique in style and taste. The captivating Apothic blends are crafted by using only the most distinctive California grapes. From vintage to vintage, the character of the individual varietals guide the shape of each blend. The unique blend of grapes create intense aromas and mysterious flavours, with the grapes guiding the way from the vine to the cellar, crafting unforgettable wines.

Just as Cabernet Sauvignon, the “King of Reds”, resides in the upper echelons of the wine world, the carnivore sits atop the food chain. Inspired by these two kings, Carnivor offers sophisticated wines with bold, intense flavours and a refined mouthfeel. Carnivor doesn’t hold back on flavour and neither should your meat. Pair these full bodied red wines with any cut you choose – just add company and prepare to Devour Life.
