Lejano translates to "far away or distant" which accurately describes this spectacular site, two hours drive from anywhere. The vineyard enjoys unobstructed views of the Pacific, and clings to a series of hills right at the fog line. It is nestled into a coveted Pinot Noir aspect--'between the the first and second ridge' from the ocean. The San Andreas Fault runs right through here, lifting up complex soils full of mixed rock and fossilized scallop shells. A very lithe, pure wine with that electric red crunch we've come to expect from this zone.
Today the winery is owned and operated by the Licklider family. Husband/wife duo Matt and Sara Licklider and their small team produce the wines at a state-of-the-art winemaking cooperative in Santa Rosa.
The focus is on Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Carignan from sites with older vines, interesting soil, and heritage clones. Sometimes the hunt for Pinot Noir uncovers other treasures like a coastal Syrah vineyard or a rare, mid-century planting of Valdiguie. Room is made for such discoveries.
