Claudio Ancarani is a third-generation winemaker working in the vineyard inherited from his grandfather. He was taught about the land by his father who passed down methods that use no mechanization and respect the terroir. Claudio believes in non-interventionist winemaking, utilizing only indigenous varietals, organic grapes manually picked, native yeast, and no manipulation of any kind. His wines are aged in stainless or cement only. The soil in Santa Lucia is a combination of clay, lime & sand.
