Stephane Lucas's philosophy, in his own words: "My work is in keeping with natural wines. My purpose is to create a wine expressing the best of our local grape, the Braucol, on his native soil in the south west. Frustrated by years of service to “investors/wine makers”, I now want to do work without compromise, demanding but simple. Indeed, there is no lavish winery here, nor hi-tech equipment, just the bare minimum necessary to support the wine and the pleasure of drinking it”.
