Denis Hoey, a self-made winemaker whose effusive enthusiasm is palpable in each handmade batch of vino he crafts, founded Odonata Wines in order to serve clean, focused sips to sommeliers and burgeoning wine enthusiasts alike. The no-frills tour inculcates vineyard knowledge into the cranium, while the wine tasting infuses rich, balanced flavor onto the tongue. Sip and swish a sassy Chardonnay or invite an aromatic Durif to dinner; every batch of wine is handcrafted in small lots, ensuring that each bottle receives ample attention throughout the grape makeover process.
