PEOPLE WE DIG.

Here is a partial and growing list of people and things we are particularly grateful for (not already mentioned within the site) that we would like to thank.

Val Littlewood

The LF image and identity all started with a sketch of a beetroot that Val crafted and the rest is history. Val resides in her home country of England with her husband and is most passionate about bees. She really likes wine too. http://pencilandleaf.blogspot.com/

Jeremy & Michelle Ball, Bottle Branding

This Lompoc dynamic duo is poised to possibly take over the world. Seriously. Jeremy has epic photography skills (lucky for us there are some shots that grace this site) and he dares to dream big with his lovely wife Michelle who is an equally talented artist and graphic designer. Amazing chefs, creative masterminds, great friends – "What aren't they good at?" is perhaps the suitable question. http://www.bottlebranding.com/

Janet Allinger

Amazing beyond belief graphic designer, illustrator and artist. Janet just plain rocks, she crafted up the Rosé label which was inspired by a bottle of 1919 Graves we enjoyed with another one of our favorite people, Erik. http://www.janetallinger.com/

Erik Kelley, The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills

Erik is a walking encyclopedia of anything and everything to do with wine and food – including of course, cheese. http://www.cheesestorebh.com/

Jon McDaniel, Sommelier 

The Sommelier and Wine Director at The Gage in Chicago (formerly at the local Los Olivos Café), Jon has been an LF believer from the start. He's someone to always be watching. He is also the fellow who coined the second nickname (the first being pinkcrack of course ;)  for our Rosé - the "Reverse Mullet" - party in the front, business in the back. http://www.facebook.com/#!/mcvino

Phil Carpenter, Santa Barbara Wine Talk & Michael Tou, Central Coast Uncorked

Two guys who are so obsessed with Central Coast wine that they have dedicated countless hours to promoting the area and it's people – all while holding down full time day jobs NOT in the wine industry. Thank you both for your incredible enthusiasm and support! santabarbarawinetalk.com / centralcoastuncorked.blogspot.com
