Diogenes the Dog is an independent wine bar + 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 are selected based on his personal connections with the winemakers, meaning that 40% of the wines are imported directly from producers.
