ABOUT THE PRODUCER:
Lo-Fi is a partnership between two lifelong friends who believe in hand crafted honest wines that are made for everyday drinking. Wines to be enjoyed not to be collected. Easy drinking lower alcohol wines made to pair well with all types of foods, from pizza to paté.
We believe in neutral barrels, native yeasts, little to no sulfur additions, and no adjustment of pH. We love whole cluster fermentation. We adore carbonic maceration. We embrace a nothing added, nothing taken away philosophy that gives birth to wines that are young, vibrant, and alive.
But in all reality Lo-Fi is less about what it is and more about what it is not.
It is not over manipulated. It is not over extracted. It is not over ripe, and it is not overpriced.
