Etnyre Wines – our story

Hits: 9506

Etnyre Wines is committed to high quality, food-friendly wines.

Enjoying wines with friends and family are some of my best memories growing up in the Chicago area. Often this was accompanied by very tasty foods. When I moved to the Central Coast of California in 1992, I found myself in an extremely high quality growing area of California. Twelve days after arriving on the Central Coast, I was fermenting grapes in the basement with the help of my wife (and her toes). I was hooked.

Winemaking is such a dynamic, straightforward, and yet complicated process. I enjoy this challenge, and I am ever fascinated by the intricacies of winemaking. My mentors from the local winemaking community and wine industry have provided invaluable guidance with various aspects of our vineyard and wines.
Our friends, neighbors, and family always enjoy our wines, but it is quite humbling when such a well respected wine critic as Jeb Dunnuck says “buy this wine”.  Please visit our Reviews and Awards page for the details.
