Lioco Winemaker Dinner

125.00

Join us for our next winemaker dinner featuring LIOCO
on Monday, April 29th from 6-8:30pm…

For the last 14-years, LIOCO (pronounced lee-oko) has been making wines from California's finest vineyard sites. What began as a conversation about “wines of place” and later helped usher in the New California Wine movement, is today more relevant than ever. The LIOCO wines favor nuance over power and the approach has earned them placement on the world's greatest restaurant wine lists from Tokyo to San Francisco to New York to Oslo. Husband/wife duo Matt & Sara Licklider and their small team produce the wines in a small Santa Rosa warehouse. All of the fruit is purchased from exceptional vineyards (many of them organic/biodynamic) spanning 200-miles and three counties (Santa Cruz, Sonoma, and Mendocino). The focus is on non-irrigated Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Carignan from sites with older vines, interesting soil, and heritage clones. Sometimes the hunt for Pinot Noir uncovers other treasures like a rare, mid-century planting of Valdiguie, room is made for such discoveries!
