Founded in 2010, ENSO Winery is an award winning urban winery in the heart of Portland’s (Oregon, USA) Eastside. Ryan Sharp’s, ENSO’s founder and winemaker, goal was to offer more than just wine but also an environment where patrons can enjoy a tasting in the same facility where the wine is being produced. Things are kept local with most of the grapes being sourced from Oregon along with Washington and all the production is done on site. By keeping production to a small scale, ENSO can maintain the quality of the wine and experiment with different varietals.
In the early stages of ENSO, Ryan took the opportunity to experiment with various bottle types and closures in order to define the new brand, stating that “In the end, ZORK® STL made me the happiest; providing a closure that allows the wine to age properly, delivering a consistent experience, and is easy to use.”
By selecting the unique ZORK® STL Peel and Reseal Closure, Ryan was able to create a consistency for the ENSO brand, from table blends to premium reserves. With no worries of TCA, the ENSO Winery can be assured quality wine is delivered each and every time to their customers. The staff is also able to engage and educate customers on the wines and innovative closure.
ENSO wines are now available in Oregon and New York.
