Luc Morlet

Winemaker, PATEL - Napa Valley

Winemaker, Luc Morlet

Wine has always been a way of life for Luc, who grew up working on his family Pinot Noir and Chardonnay domaine, Pierre Morlet & Fils, in Avenay-Val-d'Or, Champagne. Born in Epernay, France to a fourth-generation winegrower family, Luc, as a child, enjoyed learning about all of the practical and technical aspects of vineyard farming and winemaking.

Country born: France

Education: Luc Morlet is a Masters graduate of Enology from Rheims University, France and holds both a Viticulture degree from Ecole Viticole de Champagne and a MBA in Wine Business from Dijon Business School, Burgundy.

Years in the wine industry: 20-30 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Passionate for both the expression of the terroirs as well as for the continuous pursuit of the ultimate quality, Luc calls his winemaking philosophy neo-classic laissez-faire without compromise. In other words, Luc describes it as a non-interventionist winemaking style driven by an ongoing search for quality improvement. With over 20 vintages under his belt (13 in California and 9 in France), and with his own zest for innovation, Luc uses century old principles and classic Burgundy and Bordeaux methods, while adapting to California's natural conditions.
