The ethos of Slacker was always described by winemaker Matt Trevisan as, “wine representing not only the winemaker, but the idea that wines should be fun and relaxed.” Forever akin to the Slacker lifestyle, he decided to bring back the Slacker name in a much more appropriate way. Now its own label, Trevisan crafts fun blends that showcase his ability to constantly keep creating and pioneering the exciting possibilities of the Paso Robles wine region.
About the labels: An experimental canvas for Matt and Linne Calodo, the Slacker labels are part of a long overdue collaboration with Director and Photographer Philip Andelman who helped out with a Linne Calodo harvest in 2005 and continues to be a friend of the winery. Starting as a cinematographer, Philip began directing music videos and commercials for a wide range of artists and clients such as Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Norah Jones, American Express, Nike, and NFL. Alongside film work, Philip recently returned to photography, working closely in the past few years with a select handful of musicians, casually following them on and off the road. From Jack White to Ryan Adams, The Beasties Boys and Beck. Philip's work has evolved out of his love of music and travel, his series of photographs resembling scrapbooks chronicling quotidian life.
Slackers have been known to cut corners sometimes in search of a good time. Consider the Slacker Wines as part of that search. The Slacker brand looks forward to years of innovation and creative alliances. In the words of Matt, "I just love making wine, even if I'm a Slacker."
