Odonata Wines is a small family winery. They work closely with the growers to ensure the highest quality wines from the vines to the glass. Their credo is blending of old world winemaking methods and attitudes with new learning and a continuous search for improvement. The winemaker creates wines that are soft, supple, and feature subtle complexity. Inspired from the traditional French style, these wines are designed to be food friendly. They are balanced in fruit, acidity, alcohol, and wood, with flavors and aromas that are cohesive with a lengthy finish. Odonata wines are made to be accessible now, but will also age beautifully. They will always be handmade in small batches to exemplify the unique qualities of the varietal and vineyard. Very good wines especially given how reasonable the prices. They have a lovely sparkling wine on their secondary label. Tasting rooms in Salinas and Santa Cruz.
Pizza night: Tuesday evenings only. We've enjoyed ordering gourmet pizza at Companion Bakery next-door and sharing a bottle of Odonata wine. The pizza makers bring it over to you when it's ready. So you can just sit and enjoy your wine in the recently redone sipping/eating area. Odonata Wines is a participant of California Corks Golden Gate Winery Experience. Simply present you Golden Gate card to receive a comp. tasting for 2 & 10% off bottles purchased
Don't fill your cellar with the wines you like at the moment. The temptation may be strong to buy cases and half-cases, but I guarantee that your tastes will change, and then you'll be left with a cellar full of wines that, no matter how well rated by the critics, you won't feel like drinking.
