Estate-grown fruit, and estate crafted still and sparkling Pinot noir and Pinot gris. In the heart of Mendocino’s Anderson Valley, Lichen Estate was a sheep ranch for 150 years. Oaks, bays, and madrones lined the four creeks and dotted the rolling hills of their watershed. Every winter the oaks loss their leaves but the green ghostly garb of lichen remained. Lichen is everywhere here, from the Yorkville Highlands to the Mendocino Coast. Named "Lichen Estate" in honor of its beauty and grace. Lichen farms gently, meticulously, organically. They strive to leave their children and grandchildren land that is healthier than it was when they arrived in 2000.
