Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Blend: 100% Pinot Noir
From: USA, Sonoma County
This Pinot noir comes from mountain vineyards on California’s Sonoma coast; an area famous for the quality of its Pinot and Chardonnay. The grapes for this fragrant red were collected during an early harvest – just in time to avoid crop-ruining weather. The grapes were fermented in clusters and aged for ten months in French oak barrels.
Littorai wines was founded by Ted and Heidi Lemon. Ted studied oenology at the University of Dijon and learnt his trade in the vineyards of Burgundy, becoming the winemaker and vineyard manager at the Domaine Guy Roulet – the first American to ever hold such an exulted position in Burgundy. Heidi lived and worked the land in Germany before moving to California and working in vineyards and cellars there. The couple are dedicated to biodynamic viticulture: their vineyards are managed organically and wine is made in an innovative ‘green’ winery.
