The 203-acre Lichen Estate sits at the heart of Anderson Valley, halfway between Boonville and Philo. Founders Douglas and Ana Lucia Stewart planted seven acres of pinot noir and pinot gris vines in 2008 on meter-by-meter spacing, the same used for the Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy and Champagne. They have farmed it organically from the outset. This singular vineyard produces singular wines. Half the fruit goes into the estate sparkling wine program, the other half to still wines. As part of the estate vineyard’s character it uses the gentlest of equipment coupled with minimalist techniques, striving for elegance, focus, purity, structure, and balance in the wines.Tasting room open 11-5 Thursday-Monday.
