Littorai Wines was founded in 1993 by Heidi and Ted Lemon. Littorai produces vineyard designated chardonnay and pinot noir wines from the true north coast of California: western Sonoma and western Mendocino Counties.
Littorai's philosophy of winegrowing is inspired by Ted's years in France and is based upon the concept of terroir. Terroir based winemaking postulates that wine of a single place produced by a single estate, is the greatest expression of winemaking. The pinot noir and chardonnay grape varieties are uniquely suited to this philosophy. If the site is not exceptional, the wines of these two varieties lack genius. All of the sites in the Littorai vineyard portfolio have been carefully selected by Ted. Many of these are steep hillsides where yields and ripening conditions are marginal.
The Lemons are life-long, family winemakers, passionately committed to their craft. They have not come from other walks of life and this fact is essential to understanding Littorai. Littorai is not motivated by competitions, ratings or trends, nor by the lure of publicity. It is devoted to the mystery of wine, not the science.
