The Missing Leg
Karl and Heidi Wicka launched this label as a culmination of 25 shared years of production and hospitality experience in California's Central Coast wine industry. The name comes from the name of Karl's father's favorite pub outside of London, known as The Missing Leg.
Karl Wicka worked 9 years at Wild Horse Winery in Templeton after graduating with a degree in Fruit Science from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Later, he became an assistant winemaker at Turley Wine Cellars in Templeton. Heidi Wicka worked in hospitality for Wild Horse Winery and Turley Wine Cellars and currently pours at Jack Creek Cellars.
Small lots of Pinot Noir is offered from the Kruse Vineyard in the Paso Robles AVA and Sierra Madre Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA
