The Producer: Liten Buffel
Patrick Vaughn and Zack Klug of Liten Buffel focus on low intervention wines that reflect a sense of place and time. They are minimalists in the cellar, and in the vineyard. Their wines are dry, unfined, unfiltered, and with no sulfites added. Just foot crushed grapes settled in old wood and bottled by hand at the proper time.
