Larry Oddo purchased the winery in 2005 and moved to Cañon City with his wife Diane and then eight-year-old daughter Emily. He directed and guided the winery in the formative stages to the high-profile Colorado gem it is today. Originally from New Jersey, Larry received his business degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1983. He went on to become a partner in a prestigious regional CPA firm in New York City. After 23 years in accounting, with a desire to live, work, and play in the tourism destination he now calls home, he made the leap of faith and invested in his love of wine. He is an avid outdoor recreationist that enjoys the climate and natural beauty of the Royal Gorge Region, and he has been active in various leadership roles as a member of the Rotary Club, the Chamber of Commerce, Fremont County Tourism Council, and the Cañon City Board of Education, supporting community organizations, events, and initiatives whenever possible.
