LIOCO has been at the forefront of the 'New California' wine movement for the past 15 years. The company creates minimalist bottles that show a serious sense of place. Owners Matt & Sara Licklider work with a variety of dry-farmed organic vineyards and emphasize the cultivation of old vines. ‘Laguna’ is hand-harvested, ferments with native yeast, and ages 8 months in oak. Notes of cranberry, wet stones, forest floor, and black tea dominate.
