    About Caleb Leisure Wines

    California, United States

    2017 was my second vintage. Before the harvest I buried ten authentic Georgian qvevri in the earthen cellar at Coturri Winery. My winemaking is guided by ancient tradition, and inspired by properly grown, ripe California fruit. No additions or subtractions of any kind.
