The Vineyards

 

We work with 18 local growers who grow exclusively for LFC. They don’t operate wineries, instead they focus solely on growing vines in some of the most interesting vineyard sites in the area. They are perfect partners because they own great dirt, they relish the challenge, and they love wine.
