The Lucas Vineyards story begins in 1974 when Ruth Lucas and her family moved from the Bronx of New York City to a 60 acre farm in Interlaken, New York. Rooted in the family was a common dream of creating a successful family business through grape growing in the Finger Lakes region which was just starting to thrive.
The Lucas estate is now home to 14 grape varieties, including Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and winter hardy hybrids like Vignoles, Vidal Blanc and Cayuga White. Jeff Houck, Ruth’s son-in-law, the current wine maker, oversees production and helped it grow to over 26,000 cases annually, comprising over 25 wines.
