Led by Founder Michael Polenske and President Paul Leary, the current Bespoke Collection portfolio includes Blackbird Vineyards, ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens, Recuerdo Wines, and Resolute Wines.

Blackbird Vineyards

Blackbird Vineyards is an artisanal producer of Right Bank Bordeaux-inspired wines from the Napa Valley. Planted in 1997, the estate vineyard is located in the heart of the Oak Knoll District. The vineyard's valley floor topography presents optimum growing conditions for Winemaker, Aaron Pott, to produce elegantly styled, appropriately balanced red wines that offer short and long term cellaring potential. www.blackbirdvineyards.com

Recuerdo Wines

Recuerdo Wines offers enthusiasts the opportunity to experience premium wines that capture the best of Argentina's unique terroir, specifically within the high-altitude Uco Valley. Recuerdo means “memory” or “memento” in Spanish. As such, the Recuerdo winemaking team of Santiago Achával and Pablo Martorell passionately believe that each bottle of Recuerdo should not only represent Argentina's native terroir but also serve as a memory of each and every harvest. www.recuerdowines.com

Resolute Wines

The word "resolute" represents our steadfast mission to produce iconic wines that embody the unique characteristics of each vineyard we farm, without manipulation. Crafted by winemakers Kyle Mizuno and Aaron Pott, Resolute Wines tells the story of the underdog. The first label in the Resolute Wines portfolio depicts an enduring boxer. Small but mighty, this figure is adorned with a gold crown that represents a victory. For Resolute Wines, that victory is our partnerships with California farmers that take pride in their approach to sustainable winegrowing. While these vineyards may be lesser known, their quality is unwavering. www.resolutewines.com
