ABOUT US

Lieff Ranch sits in a small pristine valley nestled against the rugged terrain of the Los Padres National Forest. You'll find us along Alamo Creek Road in southern San Luis Obispo County just off Highway 166 past Twitchell Reservoir. Our Ranch enjoys excellent and very specific terroir and is a perfect location for our 40 acre vineyard of Grenache, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier.

For the first time we are producing our very own estate grown Central Coast Grenache Blend and Sauvignon Blanc. We are thrilled to have Mikael Sigouin, wine maker of Kaena wines formerly of Beckmen Vineyards, as our winemaker. Our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc was released May of 2017 and our Grenache Blend, Rumination, is set for release in the winter of 2017. We are especially excited about the release of our Lieff Alamo Creek Rose, available for Valentine’s Day 2018.

Lieff wines is proud to offer our fruit for sale to such illustrious vintners as Robert Hall, Bonne Doon Wines, Margerum Wine Company, Beckstoffer Wines, Kaena Wines, Brander Wines, and Sans Liege among others.

Our Grenache is Alban and Clone 1. Our Syrah is Clones 877, 470, 383 and 174. Our Sauvignon Blanc is Clone 1 SB from Rutherford.

the vineyard

San Luis Obispo County, on California’s Central Coast, is characterized by warm, clear days, generally unencumbered by clouds, fog or severe winds. Nighttime temperatures are cooled by a marine layer that moves over the region after sunset. Proximity to the ocean, orientation of the numerous canyons and valleys, and varying elevations produce diverse macroclimates, allowing production of both cool and warm loving winegrape varieties.

OUR WINES

Lieff 2016 Alamo Creek Ranch Sauvignon Blanc

The bouquet on the 2016 Lieff Sauvignon Blanc soars. High toned aromas of citrus, melon and passion fruit along with scents of sandalwood, star fruit, mineral and spice. Upfront flavors of citrus, melon and pineapple lead to a zesty core of mineral, spice, honeysuckle and herb finishing fresh and clean with bright acidity.

The Ranch

Lieff Ranch sits in a small pristine Valley nestled against the rugged terrain of the Los Padres National Forest.

Our Ranch enjoys excellent and very specific terroir and is a perfect location for our 40 acre vineyard of Grenache, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc.

For the first time this year we will be making our very own estate grown Central Coast Grenache and Sauvignon Blanc. We are thrilled to have hired Mikael Sigouin, formerly of Beckmen Vineyards, as our winemaker. Our Sauvignon Blanc will be released in 2016 and our Grenache in 2017.

Our Grenache is Alban and Clone 1. Our Syrah is Clones 877, 470 and 383 and 174. Our Sauvignon Blanc is Clone 1 SB from Rutherford.

Lieff Ranch has been in the family for the past 12 years during which we have sold our Grenache and Syrah grapes to Bonne Doon Vineyard, Margerum Wine Company, Beckstoffer Wines and Bridlewood Vineyard, among others. We will continue to sell our fruit as we produce own wine.

We love San Louis Obisbo County and are so happy to have had a role in preserving some of it's glorious wilderness.
