How local can you get with an urban wine bar? Well, with charcuterie coming from Jamie Stachowski up the street, wine from Virginia staples like King Family Vineyards and Borboursville Vineyards, plus cheeses from Cherry Glenn Goat Cheese Co. in Maryland, it’s quite simple for Eno.

The wine list, expertly curated by Jeffrey Barrientos and Eno’s staff, highlights the best in local and international wines. So much so that Eno requires two cellars, one upstairs that’s temperature-controlled for whites and sparkling, and an 1,800-capacity basement cellar.

“Flights” make up the central focus of the menu, in terms of both wine and small bites. For the local enthusiasts, “Jefforson’s Heirs” offers three Virginia glasses of wine. Pair one with any of the charcuterie or chocolate flights, and share amongst a group.

The three-level space itself reflects the 20th century row house Eno once was, with exposed brick adorning most of the walls. Still, to add a modern touch, there’s ample steel accents, circular tables with “chardonnay” and other wine varietals burned into the wood, and a massive dangling art installation of a wine barrel hanging over the main bar. With 72 seats, along with an event space for meetings and tastings in the bottom floor, Eno fits both the casual wine tasting group, along with larger groups – reservations for which, of 8 or more, can be made by calling the wine bar.

Eno is located at 2810 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, and is currently open Monday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to Midnight, and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.
