Lucas Winery Tasting Experience
Wine tasting at The Lucas Winery is interactive!
Your tasting reservation includes a hands on tasting experience during which your personal host will take you into our vineyard for a review of grape growing techniques that influence our wine style. After your visit to our 90 year old organically farmed ZinStar vineyard, you will continue your tasting experience with a visit to our Grand Chai and learn why it is one of the most unique Zinfandel barrel rooms in the world. Depending on the time of year, you might prune a vine, taste Zinfandel grapes almost ready to harvest, punch down some newly harvested grapes, or sample some freshly fermented wine. You will never again look at wine tasting in the same way.
Reservations are required for groups of 7 or more and we encourage all visitors to make a reservation on weekends. Our $15 tasting fee is waived for wine club members only, and includes an etched Riedel glass to take home.
