About Me

I’m Simon LeClerk, and I live amidst the beautiful hills of Napa Valley, where I nurture my deep-rooted passion for wine. I’m the creator of “Ruby and Perry,” a wine blog named with love after my two Labrador retrievers. My journey in the wine world began with a degree in viticulture, followed by a Master’s in Oenology from UC Davis, allowing me to explore everything from California’s vibrant vineyards to the historic wine cellars of Tuscany.

Enjoy Wine With Me

Wine doesn’t need to be complicated, snooty or elitist. You can buy good wine for a few dollars or spend hundreds on something that’s not quite to your taste (or the occasion). Discover the background, the history, and the culture of wine with my help, and, of course, a bit of encouragement from uRby & Perry. It will be fun!
