Lieu Dit is a partnership of longtime friends Eric Railsback and Justin Willett. After many trips to France, they decided to found Lieu Dit in 2011 and focus it solely in the varieties indigenous to the Loire Valley, now grown in Santa Barbara County.
Sourced from own rooted vines planted at the Happy Canyon Vineyard in the east side of the Santa Ynez Valley. The wine is fermented using native yeast. The wine is transferred to neutral oak barrels for the winter.
