CHÂTEAU DU LUC

My family has always owned vineyards, but winegrowing wasn’t their main business: it was running the local shop. Personally, I have always loved wine for its intricate and evocative character. Former carpenter, I decided to retrain at the age of 34 and so I bought 1.5 hectares of vines to my grand-mother in 1992. With the years, I have managed building a vineyard that spreads over 17 hectares. I run the vines according to organic farming, the best way for me to craft faithfull wines of my childhood terroir.
