Descended from a long line of grape growers, the Lucas brothers came to Santa Barbara County and planted their first vineyard in the Santa Maria valley in 1970. Building a reputation as a grower of the finest quality wine grapes, Louis Lucas has provided his grapes to many of California''s finest wineries. In 1996, Judge Royce Lewellen joined forces to form Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards, a venture that continues to acquire premium vineyards and grow and sell grapes of the highest quality.
From the Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards in the Santa Ynez, Santa Maria and Los Alamos Valleys, he selects choice lots for a limited production of premium wines. Attention to detail in the vineyards produces the quality necessary for our winemaker, Megan McGrath to create this fine wine.
