After his adventures in Burgundy, owner Ted Lemon decided to go back to the United States and, in his own words, "wander around" looking for a suitable location for chardonnay and pinot noir. In 1993 he decided to go for it. Without the resources to immediately purchase a vineyard, this 'American dream' took a different turn. Not vineyards, but grapes - he bought them from several wineries in Anderson Valley and Sonoma Coast and made the wines at Robert Pecota in Calistoga in the north Napa Valley. Now, more than twenty years later, Ted and Heidi own about 7 hectares of vineyards and have long-term contracts with farmers for an additional 11 hectares of vines. Ted has been working on biodynamics since the early 2000s. The Littorai vineyards are not certified, but they work according to this philosophy. Littorai's wines are among the best in California. Ted Lemon makes pinot noir and chardonnay from single vineyards. Elegance, juiciness and concentration are key words in his cuvées. Wines with exceptional aging potential.
