LOLA Founder Seth Cripe has studied wine from every part of the wine-making process, including planting, irrigating, thinning, pruning, harvesting and finessing vintages at the most prestigious wineries in the world. As a teenager, he left his school and home in Anna Maria Island, a fishing village off the coast of Florida, and arrived in Napa Valley to pursue his dream of producing naturally balanced and authentic coastal wines. In 2008, he founded LOLA, a winery that embodies that vision through its Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Artisanal Series varieties. “A winemaker to me is a caretaker of what nature does on its own,” Cripe says. “We work with nature every step of the way to produce a wine that is almost as nature intended.” Cripe lives between his home in Napa Valley, and his native Anna Maria Island, where he produces critically acclaimed bottarga and caviar.
