Enkidu Wines relocates its Sonoma tasting room
Sample the small-lot, handcrafted, award-winning vintages of Enkidu Wines in its new, intimate tasting venue on Eighth Street East in Sonoma.
The name “Enkidu” comes from The Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the oldest stories ever recorded. Written in Sumerian cuneiform nearly 4,500 years ago, the story details the life of King Gilgamesh and his best friend Enkidu, who embodied strength, passion, and incredible bravery. Enkidu was rustic and rough around the edges, but over time he became more cultured and refined.
Enkidu Wines takes its direction from the character of Enkidu, who evolved while staying true to his nature — the same way a grape does as it journeys from the vine, through the winemaking process, to a finished wine. Enkidu Wines sources its wines from vineyards across the North Coast, working closely with growers who farm conscientiously.
The new tasting venue is open daily for walk-in tastings from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the tasting flight ($15, fee waived with purchase) includes five wines. Private, customizable, by-appointment tasting experiences are available for up to six guests.
