Orange Boots Wines - Felicia Hodges
Orange Boots Wines - What does one do when faced with the possibility of moving across the globe, South Africa to be exact? Learn to make wine,the basics at least. In 2010 Felecia Hodges did just that. Armed with an idea and a passion for challenging herself the journey began, thus Orange Boots Wines. Felecia’s national and international travels have been the catalyst for her interest and knowledge of wine.
Realizing that a Masters Degree in the arts from The University of Southern California could position her firmly within the Arts Community of South Africa, she believed strongly that creating wines was in itself an art form.
Orange Boots Wines grapes such Malbec, Cab Franc, Syrah, Tannat and many others are harvested not from the wine regions of South Africa but from California’s Central Coast, Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. Although South Africa was put on hold the art of wine making was not.
