In 1994, the western fringes of the Sonoma Coast AVA were unknown to all but a very few winemakers. In February of that year, Ted Lemon, Burt Williams, and Steve Kistler all traveled to the remote hills of Cazadero in search of quality Pinot Noir from the “true” Sonoma Coast. They arrived at the young vineyard site of David Hirsch, who had a multi-generational vision of transforming this dramatic land into a world class vineyard.
In celebration of their 25 year farming and winemaking partnership, join Ted Lemon of Littorai Winery and David Hirsch of Hirsch Vineyards for a special Zoom interview on June 4 at 5pm PST!
