Linne Calodo

Few wineries appreciate the concept of terroir as much as Linne Calodo. After all, the small, family owned label is named for the rocky, calcareous soil type of Westside Paso Robles, and all of the Linne Calodo’s wines reflect the intense nature of the Paso growing region – an end result that is one of the primary goals of winemaker Matt Trevisan. Recently lauded as one of the rising young stars of the area by Wine Spectator Magazine, Trevisan brings an inquisitive, intuitive, and technical mind to his work. He views the act of winemaking as a journey of discovery in which one “is always looking for the Holy Grail,” and he holds a degree in biochemistry from nearby Cal Poly. He focuses almost entirely on red wines, specifically Zinfandels and Rhone-style blends. He works closely with his grape growers, and Linne Calodo labels often bear vineyard designations from noted local vineyards such as Cherry Ranch. The Trevisan’s also firmly support the idea of sustainable agriculture, with “sustainable as a catch all phrase for the always moving in a positive direction, always moving towards eco-friendly practices.”

Both Linne Calodo and Slacker wines are produced at the Linne Calodo winery by winemaker Matt Trevison.
