With only 4 barrels to start in 2009, all from the same vineyard, the original idea was to make one wine. The wine itself had a different plan and we gladly listened.

Two of the four barrels made up White Hill. With a more mineral driven profile, those barrels reminded us of drinking 1er Cru Chablis and were given their name in honor of the chalky white hills of Chablis and diatomaceous earth of Sta. Rita Hills.

The other two barrels had a profile of warmer tones and were texturally more voluptuous, reminding us of Meursault and the other sexy wines from the Cote d' Or (Slope of Gold) we are admittingly addicted to. Hence, the first two bottlings were born: White Hill and Golden Slope. In 2011 we had the opportunity to make a little Bandol-inspired Rosé and since we drink white and Rosé like water all year-round, it seemed like a pretty good idea. 2013 harvest brought the opportunity to branch out with a small amount of Chardonnay from the neighboring, sister AVA of Santa Maria.

 

AVAILABILITY

Our mantra is simple: quality over quantity. As a Chardonnay-focused project, hopelessly devoted to a teeny tiny AVA, our production is limited...

To help us best allocate our production as thoughtfully as we can nationwide, we currently sell our wines directly to members of our Wine Club. aka; the LF Family.

We would love for you to join us.

We look to the regions of Bandol and Provence for the inspiration behind this Rosé. It is a combination of 95% Mourvédre and 5% Grenache sourced from the Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA. The grapes are pressed as soon as they arrive to the winery and are barrel-fermented in neutral oak. Bottled after only 5 months of aging, expect this wine to be crisp, clean, and refreshing. Bright acid, combined with a lower alcohol, makes this the perfect "any occassion" wine and a mainstay in refrigerators across the country!!

BRAND NEW RELEASE!!

The leaner and more Chablisiane reminiscent of our two main Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay bottlings, White Hill highlights the unique salinity that comes through in the ancient soils of Sta. Rita Hills.

NOTES: Floral and fragrant, fresh tangerine, beeswax, jasmine. Up front minerality follow by a slightly creamier mid-palate with hints of baked lemon curd.

The Golden Slope is for us, our most personally consumed Chardonnay - she's the Goldie Locks as we often say - right in the middle profile-wise among all her "sisters" and such a pleasurable bottle to drink. A bit more tension on this vintage than her predecessors, we hope you enjoy it as much as we are.

In 2011 we found FOUR barrels that just had something more ethereal to them...More musky, earthiness and this sort of perfect balance of power and finesse. Those FOUR barrels were held back from Golden Slope to be bottled on their own; creating our FOURth wine (the first two being White Hill and Golden Slope, the third being Rosé). We started out with FOUR barrels for our first vintage in 2009, and with one of our favorite numbers being FOUR, and another's childhood soccer number being FOUR - the wine sort of named herself. Its a sexy expression of Chardonnay that drinks incredibly near term over the course of a few days and that ages beautifully if you're able to resist opening. Extremely limited quantities of this wine are available.

Made entirely from old-vine chardonnay from the legendary Bien Nacido vineyard. This continues to be our only single-vineyard offering. 2015 was our 3rd year producing this wine and both the 2013 & 2014 set the bar pretty high. We're happy to report the 2015 is just as stunning and built both for near term pleasure as well as a trusty cellar gem. A very limited production again, less than 200 cases were made.

2015 marks our 2nd vintage doing what we said we'd probably never venture to do - make red wine. Specifically; Pinot Noir. This bottling is a blend of the renowned Bien Nacido Vineyard & Solomon Hills Vineyard from the Santa Maria Valley AVA (hence, its concise name: 'SMV').

As soon as we heard that an all new, Certified Organic vineyard was being planted right in the heart of Sta. Rita Hills we couldn't wait to get our hands on some of the sure-to-be delicious fruit. We began working with Spear Vineyards in 2015 and are blown away each year, as the vineyard contiues to develop and mature.

Our 2016 'SBC' Pinot Noir was largely composed of Spear Vineyards fruit, but as is oft the case here, we couldn't help but fall in love with a few very special barrels. These barrels make up what is now the 2016 Spear Vineyards Pinot Noir.
