featured winemaker: Chenoa Ashton-Lewis
ABOUT Chenoa Ashton-Lewis of Ashanta Wines:
5th generation Oakland native and 3rd generation grape farmer, Chenoa Ashton-Lewis, and cinematographer, Will Basanta, got fully bitten by the winemaking bug in October of 2019 when last minute they bombed up to Sonoma Mountain from Los Angeles, on the news that Chenoa’s family vineyard still had unsold grapes that were quickly turning to bird fodder. With the help of family and friends they jumped in, picking and crushing to make an experimental Syrah and Pinot Noir co-ferment. The single barrel was then stored in a tent for 8 months on the family’s organic, 50-year-old vineyard, planted by Chenoa’s grandparents in the early 1970s.
In 2020 when quarantine hit, Chenoa and Will once again escaped to Glen Ellen. In the early spring while wandering the remains of the Pinot Noir vineyard destroyed in the 2017 Nuns Fire, Chenoa and Will found new vines alive and growing horizontally, buried and abandoned in a tall uncut jungle of grass. Inspired, they immediately and painstakingly walked row by row discovering and staking the new vines. To their surprise, by the early summer 160 vines that were once seemingly dead had been reclaimed and were bearing clusters of grapes.
"Awesome place with great variety of wines from all over the world!"
"Went here the other week to pick up a bottle of wine and the staff was super informative and friendly! They have a great selection with descriptions and good prices. A really great neighborhood wine shop!"
"Great boutique wine shop! Lots of unique wines I can't find anywhere else, and the service is extremely friendly and helpful."
"Vinovore is a delightful blend of creativity and style, with unique options from lady winemakers the world over! Highly recommended!"
"Such a cool spot! Love the concept and love all the handwritten descriptions. The wines I got were super reasonable and delicious."
"Great selection of wines including natural ones. Many of them wines are made by women which I support wholeheartedly."
"Always a great experience here and love that they are supporting wines made by women. Will continue to be back :)"
"An absolutely beauty shop with a very unique take on dividing up the wines and explaining them. This shop carries wine vinified by only women... Interesting concept, but they pul it off amazingly. The staff is well informed and quite pleasant. Had to pick up a bottle of 'natural wine'. Great wine shop."
"I pop in here once every other week or so to grab a few bottles to have on hand and everything I've bought from them has been delicious."
"Great wine and very helpful staff. Glad to have this place in my neighborhood."
"All Womyn craft wines! What's not to love. The owner is incredible. I've been here a few times and every time their recommendations blow my mind. The design and color scheme really make the location pop. "
"I liked Vinovere and would recommend it for all your wine-related needs."
"A feminist wine shop! I'm so excited this gem is in the neighborhood."
"Nice little spot that I found after an art show! It has different types of wines categorized by your personality type."
"Feminist wine shop FTW."
"This is my new favorite place! Amazing wines - great prices, all female wine makers and most wines are vegan! They allow dogs and they have wine tastings. They have this great coloring system to help you pick the kind of wine you like based on your palate and mood! I'm a new regular!"
"Awesome idea and application. Super fresh concept, I didn't know what I was walking into but I dug it! Really knowledgeable and friendly staff. Go check them out!"
"Popped in here for a bottle this morning to have with brunch at Jewel up the street. We also bought a pound of coffee at the counter that smells like heaven. What a sweet little store. We will definitely be back."
"Their in-store tastings with these incredible women winemakers are so much fun and such a unique and special experience. I feel like I'm in my own version of Chef's Table by the inspiration I get from these winemakers and hearing their personal stories."
"What a fantastic wine store! Incredibly thoughtful, knowledgeable and helpful staff. This store focuses mainly on female vintners, and the selection is perfect. "
"I'm so happy to find a wine store focusing on wines made by women! "
Vinovore is my new favorite wine shop. I love that it celebrates lady winemakers. We stopped by for the first time yesterday and bought a pet nat rosé made by the owner of Vinovore and wow (!!!), it was so delicious. A little funky and unique in all the right ways. We recently moved from a big wine area and have been missing that wine culture. It's nice to have found a place like vinovore! I'm hoping to get back there soon and get more of that pet nat rosé!
My favorite place! They have the most knowledgeable and friendly staff, incredible wine selection, fun ambiance. They have a great selection with a wide range of prices. If you want a $13 bottle that's also incredible, or a $45 bottle that's incredible, this is the perfect spot. They also have a wine club as well as various fun events if you sign up for their mailing list. Great local spot. A staple in the neighborhood. Also, female only winemakers is such a niche thing, but if anything it makes the wine selection more curated and the labels more attractive.
Vinovore has officially launched Ms. Readmore, a dedicated section of the store featuring classic and current novels, memoirs, educational and coffee table books written by female authors. Ms. Readmore offers titles from 50+ authors ranging from Margaret Atwood and Maya Angelou, to Chloe Sevigny and Zadie Smith.
