Winemaker Tasting with Matt Licklider of Lioco

Winemaker Tasting with Matt Licklider of Lioco

Join us as we taste through some of the fascinating wines of LIOCO Wine Company. Winemaker Mat Licklider will be here with Damon Haynes from Proof Wine & Spirits.

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. All of the fruit is purchased from exceptional vineyards spanning 200-miles and three counties (Santa Cruz, Sonoma, and Mendocino).

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.
