“a Figgins family wine estate”
The farm had an unknown little gem for its time — a south facing hillside of an acre and a half and it was with that same hopeful vision and tenacity, that my father would establish an entire industry for our valley out of the back of a ’67 Chevy pickup with a few hundred cuttings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling bare root grapes that he planted there. Building off the inspiration he gleaned from his grandfather’s bubbling fermentations in the dirt floor basement, the only logical thing to do to honor his family’s roots would be to name the winery Leonetti Cellar. My parents worked with this same inspiration and passion to have a better and more prosperous life. And my sister and I were the lucky benefactors to see firsthand that hard work is the true key to success. Some think that second generation winemakers have it easy. I think it is much more difficult as I have assimilated my forefather’s spirit of relentless improvement and the seeking of new opportunities. Our team works tirelessly to continue to improve on a defined “classic” that my parents have created. It is through our work that you will be witness to new and exciting opportunities that my generation will employ to continue the longevity of Leonetti to many generations after me.
