Tasting, and Learning, from Louis Lucas of Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards
August 16, 2013
Walking into the Lucas and Lewellen Vineyards tasting room on the popular Copenhagen Drive in Solvang, I was pleased to have my winery appointment set up with Louis Lucas himself. Before we even sat down he started giving us some history of his winery.
With 400 acres, and four different properties, Lucas and Lewellen grows 25 grape varietals. The tasting room had been open for 10 years – serving up to 25 wines. The planting began in 1970 and Lucas has been in the area for 40 years.
