Our Winemaking: Traditional & Simple

The Lucas Winery produces wines through traditional and hand-crafted methods. In an effort to protect the history of winemaking, our wines are aged in select French Oak barrels in our Grand Chai.

Five different barrel coopers were chosen to carefully enhance the unique characteristics of each vineyard. Depending on the special quality of the vintage, the wine will rest here for 12 to 16 months. Crushed gravel under the barrels is used to maintain the proper temperature and humidity in order to age the vintages in ideal conditions.
