Claudia Temby established Odyssey Wine Consulting in 1996 and initially worked with Classical Wines of Spain to develop the California market. She expanded to advising restaurateurs and retail specialists on fine wine selection. She consults with foreign vintners and American importers concerning US commercial opportunities, and to domestic wine-makers regarding national sales and distribution.

She has been fortunate in visiting wineries throughout Europe. Greatly appreciative of Terroir, and finding herself consistently impressed with wines made on volcanic soils and at altitude, she turned her attention some years ago to the Sierra Foothills, becoming fascinated with the region and its wines. Previously a member of the Bon Appetit magazine tasting panel, she’s judged the San Francisco International Wine Competition and the London International Wine Challenge and is delighted to be involved in judging the Amador County Fair Wine Competition
