Original Lucas Winery Tasting Experience

Wine tasting at The Lucas Winery is very different than you will encounter at most wineries. We move through the winery while tasting different wines. 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.

Your tasting visit to The Lucas Winery includes a hands on tasting experience during which your personal host will take you out of the tasting room and 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 located directly behind our tasting room, 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. You will never again look at a tasting room the same after your experience at The Lucas Winery.

This tasting experience is available to each guest and is not scheduled at specific times each day for groups of less than 7 people. Groups of 7 or more should schedule their tasting experience using the Vino Visit interface on this page or call the winery at 209-368-2006.

Reservations are required for groups of 7 or more. To ensure every guest enjoys the best possible visit, Limos and buses that have not made prior arrangements may be turned away. We advise you to make your reservation early in the day using the Vino Visit scheduler. Our $10 tasting fee includes an etched Riedel glass that is considered by many to be the perfect shape for general wine tasting.

Please call us about the possibility of scheduling your visit outside of our regular tasting room hours.

Advanced Tasting Experience

This tasting is for people who have lots of questions and want to "talk wine." It is perfect for a beginning winemaker or someone who is thinking about making wine. The tasting is hosted by one of our experienced management team who are involved in making wine and can be either a broad approach or focus on a narrow aspect of winemaking such as viticulture, fermentation, barrel aging, wine styles, etc. The choice is yours and direction will be based upon the questions you would like answered.

This experience is $40 per person, and takes about an hour to complete. Reservations are required.
