Born in Epernay, France to a four-generation winegrower family, Luc, as a child, enjoyed learning about all of the practical and technical aspects of vineyard farming and winemaking. 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.
With over 20 vintages under his belt (13 in California and 9 in France) 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. In 2006, Luc began crafting wines, in limited quantities under the “Morlet Family Vineyards” label. Luc has been in charge of the winemaking of several established estates and high-end projects in the Napa Valley, including Bure Family Wines wines.
