Envolve Winery – The Envolve Story

The Envolve Story
Envolve began as Evolve in 2008. Childhood friends, Mike Benziger and Ben Flajnik, established their wine brand as a means to put a long time dream to rest; start a wine brand together that celebrates organic and biodynamic wines and their hometown of Sonoma….and have fun doing it.
Our Evolution to Envolve
In July 2011, our wines continued to score well with publications and garnered notoriety with local Sonoma restaurants, wine critics and consumers nationwide. Around the same time our childhood friend, Danny Fay was finishing up his wine MBA in Bordeaux. As we grew, we realized the addition of another great friend would be a perfect fit, so we invited Danny to partner with us. Since then, we’ve become much more envolved in the wine industry, launching a second brand, Epilogue, and committing ourselves full time to producing quality wines in different price points, suiting different lifestyles.
The added “N” also represents the phonetic spelling of Involve.  The Envolve wine brands seek to involve the consumer—-the wine lover—- in all aspects of the wine making process, Sonoma lifestyle and the Envolve story. We’re using QR Codes on the back of our labels, videos on our Facebook and Twitter feeds and will be hosting educational seminars around the nation to educate people about wine and get them more envolved.
Finally, the “N” also represents our commitment to Nature. Envolve Wines portfolio encompasses sustainable, organic or biodynamic vineyards from Sonoma County. These practices not only provide healthier vineyards, but healthy vines, and in term more robust flavors and energy from their fruit.
