Show 312, February 23, 2019: Royce Lewellen, Co-Proprietor, Lucas & Lewellen Estate Vineyards, Solvang

Lucas LewellenLucas & Lewellen Estate Vineyards, established in 1996, owns and farms three vineyards in Santa Barbara County. They have been supplying grapes to some of the finest wineries in California for decades. Lucas & Lewellen believes that quality begins in the vineyard, where all the work is done by hand and standards of uncompromising quality are maintained.

“This philosophy was carried on through the opening of the winery in 1999, with the goal of consistently producing estate wines of extraordinary character, reflecting the unique terroir of Santa Barbara County wine country. Megan McGrath Gates, winemaker since 2007, responds to the varying conditions and challenges that each year brings in the vineyard in order to express the natural individuality of each grape varietal grown.”

Lucas & Lewellen’s other label is Toccata with its own Tasting Room on Copenhagen Dr. in Solvang located one block away from the Lucas & Lewellen Tasting Room. Its estate grown traditional Italian varietals.

Co-proprietor Royce Lewellen is our guest.
