Technical Info

Overview

When Bill Foley founded Lincourt in 1996, the Sta. Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County was largely undiscovered. Today it is one of California's most coveted, cool-climate, viticultural regions. Lincourt's wines are produced entirely from estate vineyards within the AVA. They are rolling hillside sites that offer "limiting" soils, large diurnal temperature swings and long growing seasons. Our wines are rich, structured, fruit forward and regionally exact.

Sustainability

At Lincourt, we believe that a vibrant, living environment has a positive effect on the health of the vines and the character and quality of the wines. To ensure the vitality of our land and the authenticity of our wines, we use sustainable methods in all of our farming, winemaking and business practices.

Vineyards and winemaking

This Pinot Noir came from our estate Rancho Santa Rosa Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. The fruit was hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyard prior to arrival at the winery. The clusters were then carefully destemmed to keep the berries intact. Additional hand sorting removed any jack stems before the fruit was transferred to small, stainless steel, open-top fermenters. The juice and skins were cold–soaked for four days prior to fermentation and then gently punched down for several days. After primary fermentation was complete, the new wine was drained and the skins were gently pressed. This Pinot was barrel-aged in 25% new French and Hungarian oak for 10 months.

Vintage

The 2014 vintage was another solid year in the Sta. Rita Hills. It was our third consecutive abundant vintage with high quality fruit and large yields. As the earliest bud break on record in the region and with such a warm growing season, this was also the earliest harvest to date. Conditions remained ideal from bloom to set only minimally burdened by the typical afternoon winds that sweep through Sta. Rita Hills.
