About the Wine
Behind Littorai's exceptional wines stand two remarkable individuals, Ted and Heidi Lemon. Their journey began with an Enology degree from the Université de Dijon and extended to prestigious wineries across the world. From Burgundy's vineyards to California's landscapes, they embraced a philosophy rooted in terroir-driven winemaking. Their legacy of finesse, balance, and dedication shines through every bottle.
In 1992, Ted and Heidi embarked on a quest to find the finest conditions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their passion led them to the coastal hills of Sonoma and Mendocino counties, where Littorai was born. Starting with limited resources but boundless determination, they produced their initial wines. Today, Littorai stands as a testament to their unwavering commitment to the land. This cult-status winery is one of the most celebrated estates in California and the world.
Littorai's commitment goes beyond winemaking. They are pioneers of generative agriculture, a paradigm that harmonizes human existence with nature's rhythms. Recognizing humanity's role in the environment, they strive to create farms that contribute positively to their surroundings. This philosophy ushers in a new era of responsible stewardship.

Lots of strawberry and raspberry with orange peel undertones on the nose. Medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a wonderful finish. Such intensity and energy. Linear and long. Drink or hold. ~96 James Suckling
