Winemaker Matt Licklider's philosophy is that "Everything begins in the vineyard." He aspires to create a true wine of origin from California by amplifying the voice of the vineyard and allowing the taster to sense its terroir. Licklider presents his Lioco wines—best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Carignane (a grape producing tannic red wine) varietals—at a four-course, paired dinner designed to bring out the best in each glass.
