Our founder Nicky Hahn’s middle name is ‘Lucien’, and the mountain range on which our vineyards have been planted owes its moniker to Santa Lucia, a saint who wore a crown of candles on her head. That crown is depicted on our Lucienne label.

Each clone contributes a desired color, aroma, flavor, texture or structural element to the finished wine.
