Kaena was launched in 2001 to showcase Mikael’s deep passion for Grenache. Kaena is a boutique winery that sources from Tierra Alta Vineyard, La Presa Vineyard, and Larner Vineyard in the Ballard Canyon AVA , primarily. Mikael who is part Hawaiian and raised on the Oahu shores, uses a shortened version of his given name for the brand – Kaena – which means “potential for greatness”.
Kaena has been serving up the Aloha in the Santa Ynez Valley for the last three years in the beautiful quaint town of Los Olivos. We recently moved our location to the center of town at the flag pole. While its been called “one of the hottest new tasting rooms in the Valley” the vibe is still welcoming, chill, relaxed. We designed the space paying homage to some of our favorite places in Waikiki – bringing Island décor with a modern twist to the Central Coast. We feel so proud of our staff we consider them our O’hana, which means “Family” in the Hawaiian language. Our O’hana is knowledgeable, compassionate and just down right fun to cruz with! Come in and enjoy the best Grenache around! We hope you visit us soon.
