Introduction

Jean León at the age of 19, with just a small suitcase for luggage, he embarked on a long and arduous journey that would take him to Paris, New York and finally to Hollywood. Years later, fortune would lead him to set up in partnership with James Dean to create a world-unique restaurant: La Scala in Beverly Hills. Known and respected in gastronomic and oenological circles, in 1963 he decided to embark on the adventure of creating the wine that would carry his name, Jean León.

The winery, situated at the heart of the Penedés region, combines tradition with the most modern winemaking techniques. It is acknowledged as having been one of the first wineries in Spain to have fermented white wines in oak casks. The new visitors centre is located at the heart of the estate and means that we can better welcome friends of Jean Leon wines. The design, by Domingo Triay, is inspired by 1960´s American architecture and is integrated naturally into the vineyard landscape following the curve of the mountainside.
