Jean Leon was an extraordinary person with a unique instinct for being ahead of his time. After immigrating to the United States in the late 1940s, he started his career in Hollywood working as a waiter for Frank Sinatra at the Villa Capri. His first important project started thanks to his friendship with James Dean, who helped him to fulfill the dream he’d had since his arrival in California: creating the most luxurious restaurant in Hollywood, which they called “La Scala”. The restaurant opened in 1956 and quickly became the meeting place for actors, directors, producers and influential politicians, into a point of reference and a glamorous setting in the heart of the Hollywood scene, eventually making its way to presdential dinner at the White House. Known and respected in culinary and oenological circles, in 1963 he decided to embark on the adventure of creating a wine that would bear his name: JEAN LEON.
