Odisseia

Jean-Hugues Gros originally hails from France, but after completing his oenology studies in Bordeaux, and a few stints in Burgundy, he had the opportunity to work at Sandeman in the Douro. Afterwards, he worked in Champagne and California to broaden his experience, but Portugal was calling him back. In 1999, he returned and began working for a small port house and consulting for a few others. In 2004, he started his own project under the Odisseia label. Grapes are sourced from high-quality local vineyards, then vinified and aged in his cellar in Vila Real.
