Founded in 1996 by Bill Foley, Lincourt is a producer of ultra premium wines from the Santa Barbara County. Named in honor of Bill and Carol?s two daughters, Lindsay and Courtney, the Lincourt winery is located in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, on Alamo Pintado Road in the Santa Ynez Valley. Originally a dairy farm, the 30 acre property retains the rural charm and simplicity of an earlier era. The quaint tasting room is located in the former farmhouse, a 1926 Sears Craftsman kit home. The barns have been converted to a winery and barrel room, and equipped to allow for handcrafted, premium winemaking.
There are candied tangerine notes on the tight nose from this twist-off bottling from William Foley's first winery, Lincourt, named after his two daughters. On the palate, the slight minerality washes around lime freshness and a just-ripe green pear tang, an introductory example of leaner, acid-minded Chardonnay. Pair with shellfish appetizers or a halibut main course.
