Hard Hat Winery

Established in 2018 by Jim Davenport, Navy Diver and Vern Armstrong, Navy Diver.

 Jim Davenport had been making wine as a hobby for over a decade and had become highly proficient in his ability to produce a wide variety of noteworthy wines.  His upcoming retirement from his career at the time gave rise to the idea of turning his craft from a labor of love into the pursuit of providing a variety of distinguished wines, fitting for everyone from the occasional wine drinker to the true connoisseur.

In June of 2018 Jim brought Vern Armstrong, a life long friend and fellow Navy diver, together to help form Hard Hat Winery. Combining Jim’s experience as a vintner with Vern created a team that brings a unique and unforgettable wine tasting experience.
