We visited Littorai on a Friday afternoon.We had an appointment, but arrived a little early,and were willing to wait. The tasting cost $40/person, and unlike most wineries, that fee cannot be applied to wine purchases, and the wines are VERY expensive $80-$95. The good news...More

It's a beautiful property, they have a big friendly farm dog, and the straw bail construction is somewhat interesting, but our hostess didn't click with us and we left empty handed. The whole tasting was just too pretentious and their wines are significantly more expensive...More

So I've been on over 40 winery tours and tastings (yes, I'm a wine geek) and I know this wine only from fine restaurants as they do not sell in retail, but their Pinot Noirs are the absolute best so I was thrilled they could...More

This is my first winery review, ever. We've been drinking wine for over half a century; mostly California products. We are not professional critics, but we've drunk a lot of wine over that time, and know what we like. We've gotten Littorai's newsletter for several...More

Littorai is biodynamic, and we learned in depth what that meant during our tour. We saw the garden, the vines, and the surrounding property, and learned how they all worked together to make great wine. We tasted in the winery building, and although the space...More

Everything at Littorai is quite unique: from the lifestory of its owner and winemaker who, at 25, became the first american winemaker in Burgundy, to the way they rightfully consider winemaking as part of a global farming vision, down to their obsessive following of biodyamic...More

Littorai Winery is not like other big player in Sonoma with huge property or gorgeous estate. Instead, it is humble and down to earth. I love they use biodynamic in their farming. When we arrived, a lot of wine interns were there preparing for the...More
