Lioco Bar Takeover$16–$20/glass, $64–$80/bottle, $30/flight of 4
Lioco was originally conceived in an alley behind Spago Beverly Hills by wine director Kevin O’Connor and wine salesman Matt Licklider (Lioco is a combination of their last names) in 2001 when much of CA wine production was heavy handed. Their mission was – and remains – to produce local wines that favor nuance over sheer power.
Today 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 family-owned 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.
Come meet Sarah Harshaw, National Sales Manager, and try a glass, bottle or flight of these nuanced wines from special places.
