Enriquez Estate & Vo’kel Wines

    Food Loves Wine is celebrating life this April with wines from Enriquez Estate Wines & Vo-kel Cellars.  Cecilia Enriquez and Dana von Sternberg are two of the most adventurous people we know who share their passion for wine making and each other on the picturesque Enriquez Estate property in the Russian River Valley.  

    Cecilia specializes in limited production Pinot Noir, Tempranillo and unique white blends, while Dana focuses on limited production Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their own small estate property and from a few neighboring vineyards.  

    Offering private, intimate outdoor seated tastings, guests visiting them can enjoy self-guided vineyard walks/picnics and ATV estate tours with catered lunch options, or stay overnight in the charming, restored milk barn. 

    In the summer months they host Brunch in the Vineyards featuring local chefs preparing wonderful meals along with local musicians performing live for even more fun! 

    Cheers to Cecilia & Dana!


    Enriquez Estate Brisa

    2015

    Russian River Valley

    The first vintage of Enriquez Brisa blending Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat & Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley. This is a clean crisp white wine perfect for a hot summer day and pairs well with seafood, sushi, or a spicy food. Wonderful with my pairing of Pork Chops in Lemon Caper Sauce.

    Enriquez Estate Tempranillo

    2014

    Petaluma Gap

    This Tempranillo has great depth and complexity with a distinctive flavor profile of plush berries, tobacco and leather. Best when opened several hours, or decanting before enjoying. Ideal for those who love darker berry flavors, BBQ, Mezcal, cigars. Incredible with my pairing of Seitan Porcini Stew.

    Vo-kel Cellars Chardonnay

    2015

    Russian River Valley

    Vibrant, clean and crisp. This RRV chardonnay is one of my favorites and I love it paired with Coq Au Vin Blanc.

    Vo-kel Cellars Pinot Noir

    2016

    Russian River Valley

    This is a balanced and bright RRV pinot noir with smooth edges that would appeal to a wide range of palates. Beautiful and delicious, it is perfection with my Chocolate Red Wine Filled Cupcakes pairing.

    Seitan Porchini Beef Stew

    This is an amazingly flavorful and hearty vegan dish that even my meat eaters love!
