Founders of LIOCO Kevin O’Connor and Matt Licklider found themselves “critical of the heavy-handed wines” so plentiful in California and decided to go all-in and become winemakers. Now, Matt and his wife Sara make all the wines at LIOCO from a variety of sites across Sonoma, Mendocino and Santa Cruz, and follow a mantra increasingly popular with so many young California vintners: keep it simple, plant the grape best-suited to the peculiarities of each piece of land, and follow that path to making great wine. LIOCO currently focuses primarily on Carignan, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The rosé of Carignan is fresh, zesty and sports lively fruit cheek-by-jowl with spices and citrus peel. A delicious wine that pairs beautifully with pork or fish, grilled vegetables too.
