Founded in 2015 by Marian Leitner-Waldman and her husband, David, Archer Roose is dedicated to producing affordable luxury wines with minimal intervention. How? Marian and David created the Traveling Vineyard.
Instead of building a winery and committing to a specific geography and varietal, they wanted to offer wines from the most-renowned regions around the world. So, they fostered personal relationships with small, adventurous winemakers who preserve terroir, and approach viticulture with craftsmanship and deep respect for the environment. Through these close partnerships, we’re able to produce unique, natural wines within 20 miles of their harvest location and bring them to you.
We continue the tradition of our namesake’s intrepid spirit: scouring the globe for sustainable, luxury libations. Journey with us by experiencing our collection of consciously crafted, worldly wines.

Archer Roose is dedicated to bringing a better, consciously-made canned wine directly to you. We proudly take 'no' for an answer, which means:
We package our wine in formats that are recyclable and minimize waste. And, a single-serve can allows you to enjoy one glass at a time, eliminating the unfinished bottle at the end of the night.
Our wines are made with no animal fining or clarifying agents, added sugars, or artificial flavoring or coloring. Our grapes are farmed without the use of harmful herbicides or pesticides, and with minimal intervention in the cellar.
Wineries are not required to disclose any of the 70+ legal additives they can include in their wine. You should know exactly what you’re drinking, so we share everything that goes into our wine.
We created Archer Roose at the dinner table. While lamenting to our friends about how expensive quality wine is, my partner, David, and I began to question the conventional wine model in the US. Could we democratize fine wine?
Partners in life and in business, we co-founded Archer Roose on the foundation of wine as it was: building relationships with winemakers, preserving terroir, and sourcing the highest-quality wine and grapes. But, we also create a new tradition of wine as it should be: with mindfulness to the planet and the modern lifestyle.
