At ENA, we are constantly looking for unique vineyards to translate in vibrant, elegant and complex wines… We make our wines to share our passion, to make you travel in a unique place and time and mostly to be enjoyed.
VINEYARD: Mariah Vineyards is under the Mendocino ridge sub-AVA, one of the most exclusive cool climate AVAs in California. Mariah Vineyards, a magical and magnificent mountaintop island, resides about 5 miles from the pacific coast, 2600 feet above the Pacific Ocean and rests above the fog line. The property is conducted following regenerative and organic methods and is completely dry farmed.
Our winemaking, in a nutshell, is an assertive approach towards nature rather than obstructive. Our decisions are based on improving the expression of the vineyard, rather than pushing wines towards a style. With minimal intervention, we ferment with native yeasts and carefully select our barrels to respect the fruits.
WINEMAKING: Oh, 2020, What a year… second vintage for ENA, and we got married!
After our first experience with Mariah Vineyard in 2019, we saw a huge potential to produce fresh and vibrant white wines. Sauvignon Blanc is nicely grown at Mariah Vineyard…this was the perfect opportunity for ENA. Carpe Diem!

Pale hay yellow color with light green hues.
The nose starts on lime-bergamot citrus zest, gooseberries and freshly cut grass aromas evolving rapidly into delicate iodine, oyster shell and mineral notes! It transports you directly to the seaside!
The vibrant mouthfeel starts with a bracing acidity that develops into a dense and rich mid palate to finish on a long and persistent minerality. Mouthwatering!
