Jean Leon Terrasola Cabernet Sauvignon

Jean Leon Terrasola Cabernet Sauvignon

Jean León is one of the pioneers of foreign grape varieties in Spain. He emigrated to the USA in the 1940s and worked in the Villa Capri restaurant in Hollywood. A chance meeting with James Dean led to them setting up La Scala restaurant together, and following Dean’s premature death León went on to create another three eateries. It was then he turned his sights to wine, and returned to Spain in 1961 to purchase an estate aiming at producing world-class wines from international varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The 150 ha estate has some 68 ha currently under vine, but there is the potential to extend this to 100 ha. It was purchased by Miguel Torres in 1995. The Terrasola wines are made from bought in grapes; the rest are estate wines.
