Josh Jensen's winemaker mentors in Burgundy were adamant that Pinot Noir and Chardonnay must be grown in limestone-rich soils to make great wines. Upon his return from France in 1971, he spent two years searching throughout California to find limestone before finally purchasing, in early 1974. Josh made
Calera's first wine in 1975. Since then, he has continued growing vines and producing wines of exceptional quality.
We are very excited to host Josh for dinner, to discuss the history of Calera, tell some stories from the last 40 years of wine-making, and to present a selection of his wines alongside a menu created by Chef Colin Shane. Make sure you book early to ensure you save a seat.
