Mendocino County Pinot Noir
Mendocino County, California
Lioco was founded in 2005 by a husband and wife team, Matt and Sara Licklider, with the goal of making wines inspired by European tradition and a focus on terroir.
Lioco seeks out the best vineyards In Sonoma, Mendocino, Santa Cruz, and Santa Barbara, often dry-farmed, organic/bio vineyards. They hand harvest the fruit and practice minimal intervention in the cellar, with the goal of producing the truest representation of the fruit and respective site.
The Lickliders, along with winemaker Drew Huffine, and viticulturist Prudy Foxx, are the force behind Lioco’s rethinking of what constitutes ‘California’ style wine, producing wines of subtlety, balance, and complexity.
