Diogenes the Dog is an independent wine bar + online shop & cafe bringing to the table some of the undiscovered wines of the world, with hospitality at the forefront, and simplicity as an ethos. 
Diogenes the Dog was one of the founders of the philosophy of Cynicism, and it is with this inquisitive nature we approach our wines. Chosen by owner Sunny Hodge, the wines featured on the rotating list support the true underdogs of the wine world. Questioning our wine choices by focusing on new regions such as Texas, Poland, and China, or more reputable regions brave enough to step outside the norm. His personal connections with the winemakers, means that more than half of the wines are imported directly from producers, to expose true gems to the London wine scene.
