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.


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.

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.

Ærena Galleries & Gardens

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens are uniquely beautiful art and design venues featuring contemporary art and sculpture, as well as finely-edited collections of furnishings, objects and curiosities dating from the 18th century to the present. ÆRENA Galleries offers the work of over one hundred emerging to internationally renowned painters, visual artists, sculptors and artisans in captivating spaces and beautiful sculpture gardens in both Napa and Sonoma.
