Husband and wife team Ted and Heidi Lemon are behind this family run winery, established in 1993. Ted began his career in Burgundy and has worked for some of the regions top estates including Domaine Guy Roulot in Meursault where he was winemaker and vineyard manager, the first American to ever hold such a position in Burgundy! Heidi has similarly worked for some of Californias top producers including Robert Long Vineyards and Stags Leap Wine Cellars. The Lemons mission with Littorai was to find the best spot to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay along the littoral (coastal) zones of the U.S.A. They searched the west coast before finally finding their top spot in the true north of California - the coastal mountains of Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. All the vineyards have been farmed biodynamically since 2001 and there is minmal intervention in the winemaking.
