About This Wine...
Dan’s son Laurence has designed a unique gravity flow system in the winery, enabling extremely gentle handling of the grapes and wine. Run by an international team of winemakers: Californian vintner Paul Hobbs, resident winemaker Arnaud Hereu from Bordeaux and Marcela Garate from Chile. A passion for wine and an uncompromising search for excellence unite the team. We have witnessed this excellence first hand on a recent visit and believe Odfjell wines to be amongst the most innovative and excitingly different to come from Chile. ‘One dimensional’ they are not: they will delight the discerning who want to move away from the stereotypical Chilean styles prevalent on the Irish market.
