Our Story

As a young man Jesus Espinoza worked in Napa planting grape vines as a laborer. Over 20 years later, destiny has taken him back to the same ranch, but this time as the owner of the grapes.

In 2005, Cruz Calderon started construction of the prestigious wine cave at Caldwell Vineyard in the Coombsville District of Napa where Jesus resides as the Vineyard Manager.

It is here that they forged their friendship and it is here, within the cave that Cruz constructed, and using the fruit from the vines Jesus planted, that Scalon Cellars has been born.
