Family-run vineyard and winery Enoch’s Stomp is bringing its second Wine & Coffee House location to Tyler, Texas this summer. Brothers Jon Kral and K’ Kral wanted to dream even bigger after seeing the success of the first Enoch’s Wine & Coffee House in the historic town of Jefferson, Texas. Alongside family members Colin Gipner and Jonah Kral, they hope to popularize the relaxed European café culture throughout east Texas by bringing together the classic pairing of coffee and wine.
The new Enoch’s Wine & Coffee House – Tyler location will be offering award-winning Enoch’s wines and high-quality craft coffee sourced from local favorite Porch Culture Coffee Roasters. The business plans to introduce small plates, wine tastings, and live music after its opening.
With close proximity to The University of Texas at Tyler campus, the Krals want to create an environment where the community can come together to socialize, bridging the gap between students and neighboring locals by offering something for everyone.
“At the end of the day, our business is focused on family and fostering community,” said Jon Kral. “We want to be a refuge for students, parents, and professionals alike. Our goal is to cultivate menus, events, and wine experiences that will be accessible to people of all ages and occupations.”
The wine cellar and coffee house is just the beginning for the Tyler location. The Enoch family still has two empty units to fill at the new property. According to General Manager Robert Cates, these units could later become a restaurant or bakery.
With a tentative launch date in July 2022, the business is looking to hire baristas and individuals with a passion and knowledge of wine to join the Enoch’s team.
