The winery is located in the commune of Saint-Cannat (Département Bouches-du-Rhône) in the French wine growing region of Provence. It has been owned by the family since 1929. It was then that Alexandre Luc delivered the grapes to the local cooperative. The vineyard was however abandoned after his death. In 1987, it was reactivated by the grandson Jean-Paul Luc through replanting. After studying oenology, daughter Minna joined the company in 1998. The first wine was a country wine Bouches-du-Rhône in 1999 with only 2,900 bottles. The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vineyards on limestone soils and are located between Aix-en-Provence and Salon-de-Provence. They are planted with the red wine varieties Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre(Monastrell), Caladoc and Marselan, and the white wine varieties Vermentino, Roussanne and Marsanne.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
