Ethyl acetate is the most common ester in wine, being the product of the most common volatile organic acid – acetic acid, and the ethyl alcohol generated during the fermentation. The aroma of ethyl acetate is most vivid in younger wines and contributes towards the general perception of "fruitiness" in the wine.
Ethyl acetate is used as a solvent in the manufacture of modified hop extract and decaffeinated tea or coffee. Also used for colour and inks used to mark fruit or vegetables. In the field of entomology, ethyl acetate is an effective asphyxiant for use in insect collecting and study.

So ethyl acetate, which dissolves in water at ambient temperature at around 8.5% w/w exhibits quite a low solubility, but definitely not "zero solubility". One reason for the low solubility is that the molecule does not contain hydrogen atoms sufficiently polarised to readily form hydrogen bonds with water (unlike ethanol, for example).

Ethyl acetate CAN dissolve up to 3% water and has a solubility of 8% in water at room temperature. At elevated temperature its solubility in water is higher. It is unstable in the presence of strong aqueous bases and acids.
Solubility of ethyl acetate (ethyl ethanoate) in water is 8.3 g/100 mL at 20 °C.
