The story of Enriquez Estate Wines is a rollicking joy ride into the world of wine, with twist and turns fueled by two high energy generations. Eduardo, his wife Ana and their daughter, Cecilia, were on a ski trip from their home back East to visit Cecilia’s brother in Lake Tahoe. With no snow, the family decided to visit San Francisco. On the way, they decided to stop in wine country for some wine tasting. They found themselves in beautiful Sonoma County.
After a long fun day of wine tasting and heading to dinner with the winery owner, he suggested they should retire in beautiful wine country since they instantly loved the area. Of course, not knowing how to farm or make wine, Eduardo laughed it off. Towards the end of the dinner, Eduardo agreed to swing by and take a look at a property on the way to San Francisco. The next day, they drove to a 30-acre property for sale in Petaluma, Sonoma County. “My mom refused to get out of the car; she thought we were crazy! I was ready to quit my job at Wells Fargo and come out to do this.” Cecilia’s dad suggested she write a business plan when they got home. She did, and Enriquez Estate Wines began. “Be careful what you wish for!” Cecilia laughs
