Linne Caldo - Paso Robles, CA
Matt Trevisan helped spark the Rhone-variety blend movement in Paso Robles when he and his wife Maureen started Linne Calodo in 1998. Matt is also a longtime champion of Zinfandel blends that reflect the heritage of Paso Robles. Over the past 25 years, he has created some of the region’s most notable and enduring wines, including Rising Tides, Overthinker and Cherry Red. He is driven by a devotion to Paso Robles—its wines, land, and community.
Trevisan studied Biochemistry at California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo, where he also caught the wine bug. He bootstrapped his way up through the cellar trenches at Justin and Wild Horse before striking out on his own to start Linne Calodo. He later planted Linne Calodo’s two estate vineyards in the Willow Creek District—the main winery estate and Stonethrower Vineyard. Trevisan handles numerous roles at Linne Calodo, including farmer, winemaker, cover crop sower, fix-it man, amateur electrician, and sheep herder. He practices a quiet dedication to what he calls ‘nature positive’ farming and the conservation of natural local resources.
Matt Trevisan and his wife Maureen have raised their three children in Paso Robles and are active supporters of the local performing arts scene.
