Why We Started Liquid Farm
Before Liquid Farm, our glasses were often filled with old world wine. We preferred the lower alcohol, cooler climate, and more earth-driven characteristics of European wines compared to their more ripe, fruit-focused, more alcoholic Californian counterparts.
We were eating local, supporting mom and pop restaurants and farmers markets. In trying to support California wines, we typically didn’t finish those bottles as eagerly as the old world wines on our table. That’s when we decided to make wine from our own backyard in a style we craved.
We seek to support local viticulture and honor our palates’ love for old world wines that have naturally high acidity and are not masked by many of the modern day manipulations.
To do so, we selfishly decided to make what we most love to drink: Chardonnay that is earth and mineral driven from cool climates with little or no new oak. To achieve these qualities we were drawn to one of the coolest of all California AVA’s, Sta. Rita Hills. Located in Santa Barbara County, it is home to some of the most Chardonnay-suited, unique, ancient soils in North America.
From the climate and soil, to the people and their wines, the Santa Ynez Valley is certainly one of the most special regions we have ever come across. We are truly honored to be a part of it.
