With over fifteen years of winemaking experience, Leigh has brought a diverse background in all levels of winemaking and production to Silenus Winery. Leigh has worked with many different varietals from premier appellations including the Napa Valley, Carneros, Sonoma, and Bordeaux.
With a Master’s degree in Enology from UC Davis and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Cal Polly, Leigh’s technical skills enhance her creative vision. Her previous experience with quality control in the semiconductor industry developed a discipline of precision and accuracy, which carry over in her winemaking style.
In 2010, Leigh launched myEnologist, a consulting, wine analysis and supply business in Napa. Previously she held various positions in winemaking at Spring Mountain Vineyard in St. Helena, Clos Des Jacobins in St. Emilion, MacRostie in Carneros, and Charles Krug in St. Helena.
