Leisure started with three friends talking about making a natural wine. None of us had a vineyard, but we decided to do it anyway.
We started in a cold barn outside Edinburgh and now we have graduated to a cold industrial unit off the Old Kent Road next to a nice tray factory.
We add nothing and take nothing away.
This means we deal in spontanious fermentation and the best fruits that we can find in season year to year.
