Luc Morlet joined the team beginning with the 2007 harvest. Taking on the role of Winemaker, his attention to detail and experience with Bordeaux and California winemaking are of great value to Vineyard 7 & 8.
Luc graduated with a Master’s degree in Enology from Rheims University, France, and holds both a Viticulture degree from Ecole Viticole de Champagne and an MBA in Wine Business from Dijon Business School in Burgundy.
He began his professional career as the Assistant Winemaker for the Val d’Or Champagne Cellars in France. His California winemaking career began at Newton Vineyard, when he was hired as the Director of Viticulture in 1996. In 2001, he joined the Peter Michael Winery as their Winemaker. Luc’s technical leadership helped Peter Michael to improve its already acclaimed wines from 2001 through 2005.
