At ÆRENA Wines, we see wine as a work of art. From farmers, winemakers and label artists to the artist within each of us, ÆRENA Wines celebrates everyday heroes who are mastering their craft. Featuring distinctive bottlings from both well-known and emerging appellations, we create authentic California wines that embody a sense of place and a decidedly drinkable point of view. IF YOU HAD ONLY ONE DAY LEFT ON EARTH WHERE WOULD YOU GO? My home in the Mayacamas THE VINEYARD ÆRENA's single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is farmed from vines at 2400 ft. elevation in the Red Hills of California's North Coast. These mountain vineyards are the result of the same volcanic and tectonic processes that formed the terroir of many of the North Coast's classic regions. As one would expect of mountain viticulture, elevation moderates temperature extremes and diurnal shifts, allowing for a long growing season that results in complex flavor development. The intensity of flavors is magnified by vine stress from well-drained, iron-rich vineyards littered with black obsidian, quartz crystal, and volcanic gravel.
