Bonded by their shared passion for fine wine, the making of Ode to Soul was a true collaboration between Carmelo Anthony and Robert Mondavi Winery's Chief Winemaker, Geneviève Janssens, and Asani Swann's creative and inclusive guidance. Each brought a unique perspective shaped by their own experiences and distinct palates.

For Carmelo, this meant entwining his love for bold, complex wines with a deep finesse. Blended with the elegant style, expressive flavors, and freshness of Robert Mondavi Winery, this allowed Geneviève to play with different varietals to let the magic of To Kalon Vineyard truly shine through.

To them, this was more than an exercise in blending grapes; it was a journey in blending perspectives, flavors, and personalities.
