5 Oscar-winning films 2023 

Cinema, without a doubt, is one of our great weaknesses. At Jean Leon, we love to enjoy a good movie while tasting one of our excellent wines, because we believe that the experience is mutually enriching.

The winery has always had a close relationship with the seventh art, not only because its founder, Jean Leon, was a film lover and friend of many Hollywood stars, but also because cinema is an art form that has much in common with the world of wine: both are based on the ability to convey emotions, sensations, and unique experiences.
