Cochon

Cochon Wines is the brainchild of Adam Webb and Mike Kuenz, owners of Odisea Wine Company, which is a Rhone and Iberian specialist using California grapes. Cochon, the loving French word for Pig, in this case refers to the use of the 300- liter French oak barrels Cochon Wines are aged in. The term Hogshead or Hog has long been used to describe these unique shaped barrels. With under 400 cases produced of each the white and red, these are surely as rare as they are delicious.

California
California’s wine country is as diverse as the people and wines that hail from the Golden State. With sun-soaked vineyards as far south as San Diego and as far north as the Oregon border, California’s winegrowing areas cover more than 700 miles and include more than 100 American Viticultural Regions. Each region produces exceptionally diverse wines, with unique personalities and characteristics derived from the climate, soils and people that produce the wine grapes grown there. The state’s diversity means California produces wines for every palate.
