Enkidu Wines

Wines of outstanding character from the heart of Sonoma County

Enkidu Winemaker/Founder, Phillip Staehle, created Enkidu Wine to produce wines of outstanding character, and to get back to “…working with my hands, to use all of my senses, and live and work according to the seasons of the year.” Prior to Enkidu, Phil spent ten years at Carmenet Vineyards (Chalone Wine Group) from the mid-80s to the mid-90s. He combines that experience with the ethos behind the legend of Enkidu. It comes from one of the oldest stories ever recorded: The Epic of Gilgamesh, which ultimately highlights strength of character, and a respect for the land and his inhabitants. Phil has created long standing relationships with exceptional growers and stewards of the land in Sonoma and Lake County. He brings us affordable wines, that also happen to be luscious, balanced, and absolutely delicious.
