Caleb Leisure Wines


Caleb Leisure- Winemaker-20.jpg

Caleb Leisure Wines is a small natural wine project based in Glen Ellen, CA. In 2014, after career adventures in academia and cheese, after formative internships in the Languedoc-Roussillon and Jura regions of France, I returned to my native California. I was fortunate to land an apprenticeship with Tony Coturri of Coturri Winery, where I have been given a little space for my own project. 2016 was my first vintage, and before the 2017 harvest I buried ten authentic Georgian qvevri in the earthen cellar. My winemaking is guided by ancient Georgian traditions and by properly grown organic and biodynamic California fruit. No additions or subtractions of any kind are made at any point of the winemaking process.
