Dominique Lucas has been making wine from his beautiful 6 hectares of vineyards situated down the slope from the village Ballaison overlooking Lake Geneva since 2008. He has his roots in Burgundy but fell in love with Savoie after biking in these beautiful green mountains.
Lucas employs biodynamic methods in his vineyard. The soil is tilled by horses to avoid compaction and his vines are worked exclusively by hand. Multiple harvests are carried out to ensure that all grapes reach optimum ripeness. Animals are also at the heart of his approach and sheep graze amongst the vines. He is guided by the lunar calendar throughout the whole process.
