Jack Leach DipWSET

President - France

After spending 8+ years building & honing a career in agriculture and logistics working on both coasts, the southwest and southeast of the US. Jack decided it was time to fortify his knowledge in wine and viticulture in a more dedicated manner by finishing his WSET diploma studies in Burgundy.


In 2019, Jack made the decision alongside his (French) wife to relocate to the medieval walled city of Avignon, France - A place special to them and the doorway to some of the most storied wine regions in France and some of the best in the world. While in Avignon, Jack gained unparalleled, hands-on experience across all facets of the wine production business. Jack's experiences include wine production in Chateauneuf-du-Pape making wine under the tutelage of a fantastic winemaker, Christophe Schurdevin, as well as spending time with storied wine consultant Phillipe Cambie; vineyard management with a notable Biodynamic winemaker in Gigondas.


​After what he and his wife deemed a good start to their French adventure and a great introduction to the wine industry in France, they along with their dog named Blue, decided to make the move permanent and begin building Souledra to focus on exporting the wines they fell in love with to the the United States.


​Jack spends much of his time in the field working on the sourcing and selection of our portfolio. Always running down leads or spending time with our producers to better understand their process and how to be champion their wines in the US market.


Jack graduated from Villanova University, with a major in Marketing.


​When not working - Jack and his family can be found enjoying the region that they call home. Often cooking, enjoying the local products, gardening, traveling, hiking, and skiing.
