CEO on Numanthia
Luca’s passion and immersion into the wine world has always been a family affair, born in Mendoza, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains, in Argentina, a region famous for its Malbec, planted in altitude vineyards.
Lucas obtained an MBA from IAE Business School in Buenos Aires, where he graduated with honors in 2014. He started his career in the wine industry in Argentina in the Peñaflor Group and in 2007 he joined The Moët Hennessy Wine Division, being responsible for the wines development in Latin America and the Caribbean. Lucas moved to Spain in 2015 in order to face the great challenge of leading Bodega Numanthia, the Spanish jewel owned by LVMH in Toro.
As Estate Director of Bodega Numanthia, Lucas seeks to preserve its heritage, a unique legacy composed by century-old ungrafted vineyards: with the vision of offering wines recognized as the reference from the Toro DO, on par with the best wines from Spain.
Lucas won the leadership award “Premio Jovenes Mendocinos Destacados 2017” from the CEM (Consejo Empresario Mendocino) due to his achievements abroad.
