Explanation:
It is a somewhat pretentious way to say a wine (eno) and food (culinaria) library. There is nothing like Latinate words to create an atmosphere of refinement!

Explanation:
I do not see anything wrong in translating literally in this case as the prefix "eno" is used quite often in common english parlance.

oenoculinary library


Explanation:
It offers the opportunity to wander from a book store to an oenoculinary library, a confectionary, a wine shop and other stores...
I agree with the first answer: the translation sounds quite pretentious, but maybe that's what they want it to sound like.
