Carlos Lucas was born in Coimbra but has always been connected to the Dão region. A man of the land, a modern farmer, he has more than 25 years of experience in winemaking: Montpellier, Piemonte, Priorat, Vale de S. Francisco are just a few places where he put his hands on.
He was one of the first to bring the spotlight in the Dão region. In 2008 his work was distinguished as he was awarded "Best Winemaker" by the magazine Revista dos Vinhos. Carlos Lucas keeps his nose in the wines and his hands in the vineyards, creating inovative wines and updating the portfolio.
The geography of Magnum extends to the Alentejo, Vinho Verde and Douro regions but the company will always stand stronger in Dão by recently acquiring Quinta de Santa Maria, in Cabanas de Viriato. Old vineyards with more than 20 years were planted on 10ha, with Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Alfrocheiro and Jaen grape varietes. The first wine, harvested in 2018 will be on the market in 2020.
