Inspired by Teddy Roosevelt’s powerful and provocative “Man in the Arena” speech, ÆRENA Wines celebrates the art of wine and the everyday heroes who are mastering their craft.

“It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” - Theodore Roosevelt

ÆRENA brings together a collection of iconic wines that embody the most desirable characteristics of each vineyard we farm. Crafted by winemakers Aaron Pott and Kyle Mizuno, and thoughtfully expressed by artist Tony Hernandez, ÆRENA Wines feature distinctive California bottlings from both well-known and emerging appellations that embody a sense of place and a decidedly drinkable point of view.
