"Nothing excites us more than discovering a new producer, especially when that winemaker is in our own backyard. If you've never heard of Liska wines, you're probably not alone. 2021 marks their inaugural vintage and frankly, there is not much wine to go around to even try it. Having said this, we simply had to jump at the chance to be able to offer you a glimpse into this winery that we'll surely be stocking our shelves with for years to come.
There is nothing that feels "first vintage" about these wines as each of them brilliantly display the hand of a much more seasoned winemaker. These are wines of precision, balance, freshness, and a committment to a terroir-driven style. There is clearly a philosophy at play here that resonates with each bottling - this is quite the achievement coming right out of the gates on your first vintage.
The focus for Liska is not the usual Burgundian culprits: Pinot Noir & Chardonnay, but rather on the minor, often overlooked, varietals that have a distinct Oregonian voice all their own: Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Grüner Veltliner, Syrah and Gamay.
This is a true micro-winery with the output for all of their wines made in 2021 at around 4,700 bottles total so today, we're offering Liska's inaugural wines both individually or as a specially-priced 3 pack for a limited time." -Sergio
