Owned by Ted, Laddie, and Christopher Hall, LMR employs an integrated, organic farming system, using simple, sustainable methods. Each part of the Ranch contributes to the health of the whole. Vineyards and wine making, olive orchards and olive oil making, cattle and horse breeding all work together in complementary fashion, as do the egg-laying poultry flock and the organic vegetable gardens. All crops are certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and are grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers.
?Seamless delicate green. Shows an array of fruits and flowers, generous and subtle, but very ample. The palate is rich with endless complexities, but never heavy. Ageless structure and a dense mouthfeel with real spine. The finish is long, fresh, and elegant.? ? St?phane Vivier
