Luc & Jodie Morlet, Morlet Family Winery

Beginning with the 2006 vintage, Luc & Jodie Morlet have been handcrafting vins de terroir and unique cuvées of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from their estate vineyards in Napa Valley as well as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast. The sought-after portfolio also includes a Pessac-Léognan-inspired white Bordeaux-style blend from Sonoma County. Meticulously farmed vineyards and low-intervention winemaking techniques produce powerful yet refined wines.

By taking old world principles and adapting them to California, the Morlet style results in wines harmonious in their intensity, richness, complexity and refinement. It is this notion of harmony that inspired their logo, based upon 19th century French artist Mathurin Moreau’s sculpture entitled, “Harmonie.”

Luc and Jodie live with their two children in St. Helena, CA.
