ENO has partnered with wineries around the world to create private, custom label wines, exclusively available for purchase at ENO locations in Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. These custom wines will highlight worldly flavors inspired by seasoned winemakers of France and Chile. The wines include:
Chateau de Rougerie AC Bordeaux Superiore [France] is 100 percent Merlot, owned and operated by Patrick Valette of Rougerie Winery. Rougerie wines are rarely produced outside of France; ENO will showcase the wine for the first time in the U.S.
Maipo Valley Red Blend [Chile] is 60 percent Carmenere, 30 percent Syrah, and 10 percent Malbec. Owned and operated by winemaker Miguel Besoain of Lafken Wines Winery, Besoain operates the winemaking single-handedly for a perfected process; the wooden barrels for aging are individually selected and seasoned. Each wine is bottled, labeled, and corked by hand.
ENO’s Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., locations will additionally feature an exclusive third private label wine in partnership with a regional winemaker. These wines are only available at each respective location. Chicago will feature City Winery Cab Franc Blend, San Francisco will feature Unpromptable Wine, and Washington D.C., will feature “Crushed by ENO” Red Blend.
A private label flight is also available at each ENO location and will feature the two national private label wines and the specific regional offering: ENOphile for $19.
