JP Caldcleugh

Years of Participation

JP’s love of wine and his early career in the industry started in New Orleans where he worked at his family’s wine shop and later for a wine distributor. Once he realized his passion for wine could become a long-term profession he focused his studies on horticulture at Louisiana State University and later earned a Masters degree in Enology from the University of Adelaide. JP fell head over heels for the art, the science and the profession and his passion has lead him to work for leading wineries and winemakers in California, Australia, New Zealand. At Union Wine Co. JP leads winemaking operations and continues to help Union find that perfect balance between craft winemaking, small-scale manufacturing and producing Oregon wines that are accessible, innovative and high quality.
