Katie Eigel ‏@KatieEigel Hi, Ted Lemon @LITTORAIWINE! Q: How do you describe #biodynamic #wine to general drinkers w/o sounding like a hippie :) #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @katieeigel was too young 2 B a hippie! Serious ans.: don’t describe BD #wines as diff. than others. It is up 2 taster to decide #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @littoraiwine What makes the fragrance of UR #Pinot Noir unique? #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @KeeperColl the answer is not very satisfying - careful vineyard work and keeping it simple in the cellar #SommChat

Charles Comm PR ‏@CharlesComm Your #IPOB Pinots were our wines of the tasting on Monday. What does balance mean to @littoraiwine ? #SommChat @KeeperColl #WineWednesday

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @CharlesComm that is a million dollar question! the most impt thing is that balance does not equal with the wines #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @CharlesComm - balanced wines can be bright, elegant, and powerful #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman @littoraiwine Other than Burgundy have you made wine outside of Ca? if so where & what? If not would you be interested? Thanks #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @littoraiwine How does UR process differ to create a unique natural texture to UR #Pinot Noir? #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @KeeperColl the Question of house style is the most vexing in the #wine business #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @KeeperColl After working at Dujac 4 a yr, couldn’t say what made style unique, don’t think it is possible 2 say 1 single factor #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @littoraiwine tell us about being a member of @balancedpinot #IPOB #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @KeeperColl #IPOB is the most dynamic org in #California right now; youthful enthusiasm has sometimes carried members away #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @KeeperColl But #IPOB is already growing up and will be a major impulse towards better, more elegant, and greater california wine #SommChat

Katie Eigel ‏@KatieEigel Happy #WineWednesday! "#Pinot should always be elegant & complex, never overbearing, but rarely shy" -@littoraiwine winemaker on #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @thewinemistress perhaps best 2 say “There is increasing interest N elegant #Wines” does not mean rich wines R going out of style #SommChat

Littorai Wine ‏@littoraiwine @TheWineMistress it simply means that there will be diversity in the marketplace which is a good thing for everyone #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines @littoraiwine have you worked with sangiovese & nebbiolo outside of their regions? #SommChat @KeeperColl
