MISSION STATEMENT- Worthy is a concept that was developed to produce $70 quality Napa Valley wine at less than half the price. We will only bottle as much wine as meets that strict criteria. While the wine is exceptional, it also enables me to produce a close to perfect wine with renowned winemaker Bob Egelhoff at my flagship label "AXIOS". The making of these two wonderful wines has been a dream come true. Please go to to sign up for both mailing lists.  To contact me directly, send an e-mail to or call 410-992-1400 ext#26. Sincerely, Gus Kalaris,Owner  

PRESS-WINE SPECTATOR -93PTS "Run, don't walk, for this wine at this price. Complex, fruity and perfumed aromas lead to rich, elegant blackberry and black cherry, with touches of herb and olive and pretty, toasty oak flavors that make for a smooth, enticing aftertaste. Impeccably balanced, with a long, focused finish. A second label for Axios(which means "worthy" in Greek).J.L. 

PRESS-WASHINGTON POST-"No the price is not a misprint! Had I been served this wine blind, I'd have pegged it at no less than $60. The blend is made by AXIOS owner Gus Kalaris. Worthy is gloriously bold and lush, with a generous bouquet of new oak, black cherry and cassis. Frankly, I DOUBT THERE IS A CABERNET IN THE PRICE RANGE THAT CAN TOUCH IT RIGHT NOW." -Ben Giliberti
