Tour & Tasting
Your tasting visit to The Lucas Winery includes our fun and
educational tour in which your personal host will take you out of
the tasting room and into our vineyard for a review of winegrowing
techniques that influence wine style. After your visit to our 80
year old organically farmed ZinStar vineyard located directly
behind our tasting room, you will visit our Grand Chai and learn
what makes it very unique. These unscheduled tours with one of our
extremely knowledgeable tasting room hosts are conducted for any
number of people. You will never again look at a tasting room the
same after your experience at The Lucas Winery.
Reservations strongly encouraged for groups of 8 or
more. To ensure every guest enjoys the best visit possible, Limos
that have not made prior arrangements may be turned away. Also, we
reserve the right to not allow limo visits after 2PM on weekends or
at any time during a major Lodi event.
