Our Mission

Through a comprehensive research and publication programme, ARENI exists to inform, inspire and empower those invested in the future of Fine Wine.

ARENI Global is an independant think tank dedicated to the future of fine wine. Our mission is to help companies and decision makers build a sustainably secure, prosperous, and just industry. We help fine wine wineries, distributors and retailers to understand how the world is changing, and how that creates opportunities to be seized and risks to be managed. We achieve this through a comprehensive year-round research and publication programme and events schedule.

Our Mandate

Together with contributors and members, ARENI supports a Fine Wine world sustainably evolving through change.

  • Provide a place where ideas can be developed freely and independently 
  • Raise awareness of important issues 
  • Provide alternative solutions, supported by evidence 
  • Inform and educate the wider fine wine community 
  • Encourage public debate and facilitate the exchange of ideas 

“A kind of wine think tank that engages in conversations with people from all walks of the wine world.”

Eric Asimov, The New York Times

Our Values

Fine Wine is a powerful link between earth and sky, individuals and communities, past and present. It carries within itself magic, wonder and contemplation that facilitates a sentiment of belonging through shared emotion. For all of this, we believe that the world is a better place with Fine Wine in it.


We want Fine Wine to be here for the long run. We believe that the only way to do so is through a multi-faceted approach to sustainability


We understand that global challenges can only be addressed collectively, and that enlightenment and inspiration lives within our community.


We place value in diversity and richness by listening to a wide range of actors, voices and key insights, and work towards a balanced and fair analysis.

“Given the magnitude of the global challenges facing the wine trade, it’s vital that we have a forum where people can come together and thrash out solutions. ARENI Global has finally made that happen.”

Felicity Carter

Our Partners
