Coquelicot (ko-klee-ko) is the French name of the striking red poppy flower that graces the French countryside, as well as all the labels on their wines. Coquelicot's 58 acre vineyard is an organically farmed property in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley. Sustainable farming and gentle, meticulous winemaking techniques converge to produce hand made, limited production wines that are a true celebration of life.
Farming organically has always been an extremely important element in their winemaking. Coquelicot was awarded a certificate (a 5 year process), that signifies they have met the national organic standards established by USDA National Organic Program.
Coquelicot Wines is part of a collection of high-end boutique hotels and restaurants across California. Their establishments are proudly recognized and have received international accolades and premiere designations such as Relais-Chateaux and a Michelin rated restaurant just to name a few. Club members receive exclusive pricing at these properties.
