About Lincourt Vineyards
Boutique, Ultra-Premium Chardonnay and Pinot Noir
Founded in 1996 by Bill Foley and named after his two daughters, Lindsay and Courtney, Lincourt’s wines come primarily from two estate vineyards within the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Both are rolling, hillside sites that feature limiting soils, and large diurnal temperature swings. The cool maritime conditions create wines that are intense, well-structured, fruit-forward and true. Sustainable farming techniques, block harvesting, small-lot vinifications and an intelligent blend of traditional and modern winemaking methods have elevated Lincourt to the upper echelon of Santa Barbara wineries.
Strong Roots. Storied Wines.
There are many sources of tribute and inspiration for Lincourt. First, there is the name of the winery, a fusion of Lindsay and Courtney, owner Bill Foley’s daughters. Then there are the small-lot bottlings of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that bear the names of the women who have influenced and shaped Bill Foley’s life including his wife, mother, grandmother and aunt. Finally, there are the two estate vineyards located within the Sta. Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County. This area was largely unknown when the winery was founded in 1996, but today it is one of the most coveted, cool-climate AVAs in all of California.
