Lior Lacser

The chief winemaker of Carmel Winery is Lior Lacser. He is a graduate of CFPPA in Beaune in Burgundy. He has experience in both Burgundy & Bordeaux having worked at Domaine Comte Armand, Pommard and Château le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol. He was fortunate to work with Michel Rolland, arguably the most famous and certainly the most influential winemaking consultant in the world today. He followed this with experience in Australia by working for Harman's Ridge Estate in the Margaret River region of Western Australia. He joined Carmel in 2003 as chief winemaker of Rishon Le Zion Wine Cellars and was promoted to his current position in 2005.

Lacser's objective is to make fruit led, elegant wines, where the effect of oak aging is not too dominant.
