Our wines are a celebration of creation. Enoch’s hope is to harness the bounty of creation to provide great wine, great scenery, great relaxation, and a great experience to citizens of East Texas, greater Texas, and beyond.
Our property consists of 12 acres under vine. Offerings include several estate varieties as well as wines made on site with much credit to grapes from the West Texas high plains where a climate more favorable to viticulture exists. Half of our family is rooted in Washington state, and we are proud to offer excellent wines from this region to bring you a well rounded, exceptional wine list.
Since our inception, Enoch’s Stomp has accumulated over 110 medals, the majority belonging to our signature white wine, Blanc Du Bois.
FROM OUR FAMILIES
THE DIRT ON EAST TEXAS WINE
The general translation meaning land. A deeper dive within the term explores the full range of influences and characteristics impacting the growing and winemaking environment.
The East Texas Terrior consists of sandy loam soil over a clay pan sub-surface. Our area experiences variable weather patterns. These attributes combine to present many challenges for the East Texas winemaker including heat, humidity, extreme weather events and disease.
Our estate grapes are well suited for the East Texas terrior. The sandy loam and clay based soil provides a nice acidic environment for the following:
Black Spanish (a.k.a. Lenoir)
Blanc Du Bois
Norton (a.k.a. Cynthiana)
These varietals, as opposed to the more common vinifera grapes (i.e. Merlot or Chardonnay), are well suited for our East Texas terrior. Given proper treatment and meticulous maintenance, these varieties not only grow in East Texas, but thrive. In fact, cropping to prevent over production is a common necessity.
These attributes provide for a unique wine. Uncork a bottle and experience East Texas. Let the aroma carry you on a leisurely drive down a tree-lined dirt road with the smells of nature in the air, or an evening on the patio by the fire pit. In East Texas, we make our own way — and our own wine! Enjoy your own piney-woods pour and see where it carries you.
