The mission of Liquid Farm was simple – to support local viticulture and to create old world style wines with lower alcohol and natural high acidity that they themselves would love to drink. Their goal was to create incredible Chardonnays that would rival that of Burgundy whilst creating awareness about what happens above and below ground throughout the growing experience, and telling the story of how both are inextricably linked to wine.
In order to do this successfully they would need a cool climate and were drawn to the Santa Ynez Valley, not only for the cool climate but the soil, the people and their wines. The winery is run by Nikki and Jeff who between them have years of experience in both winemaking, sales and marketing, Jeff having worked for some of the top Burgundy and Champagne houses in France and Nikki obtaining her BA in Wine and Viticulture with a focus on wine business. “Our project’s name reflects our strong belief in that philosophy. It is truly all about place in combination with the highest quality fruit and letting the varietal and regional typicity of the wine shine through from vineyard to glass… Liquid from Farming”.
