Lucas Winery Description

Since 1978, The Lucas Winery has focused on crafting vineyard designated Zinfandel from their historic ZinStar Vineyard. Winemakers David Lucas and Heather Pyle-Lucas create balanced, food-friendly, elegant wines that reflect the full potential of California's Lodi Appellation. The family of wines pleases both the palate and the planet as the vineyard is CCOF Organic Certified and the winery is 100% solar powered.

The Lucas family and staff use centuries old vineyard and wine making techniques to arguably produce the best Zinfandel in the Lodi region from their 79 year old vineyard.

Most of the staff are involved in annual harvest activities and a couple even make their own wine.  Personalized tours are conducted by their knowledgeable staff and are tailored to the individual. Take the tour, it is an hour of your life to be remembered for a very long time and you will want to share this experience with friends.

Craft zinfandel wines
mikesq, Waltham
Well-appointed tasting room with an attached, small barrel room and bottle display. Our hostess was Teresa, who was very nice and knowledgeable. During the tasting she poured their “ZinStar” and we took a short tour with our glasses to see the vines on which the grapes used to make ZinStar are grown. These are 80 year old vines that are CCOF organic certified vines. (California Certified Organic Farmers). The 2011 ZinStar has a dark garnet color, a leathery, earthy flavor and a nice lingering finish. Other wines we tasted were the 2011 C’T’Z’N Zinfandel, which had an allspice aroma and a spicy flavor, and nice finish, and a delightful Italian Passito style Late Harvest Zinfandel with a deep tawny color and a very nice fruity flavor.
