Founded in 1978 by long-time vintner David Lucas, The Lucas Winery is devoted to creating elegant Chardonnay and vineyard-designated Zinfandels that demonstrate the Lodi appellation’s greatest potential. David Lucas and his wife, Heather Pyle-Lucas handcraft our wines. Both have accomplished histories; David as former vineyard manager for Robert Mondavi Winery and Heather as winemaker for Mondavi and Opus. Their flagship wine, ZinStar Zinfandel, represents their winemaking philosophy; that great wines are made in the vineyard, and in Lucas' case, from their old vine, organically farmed property.
Visitors to their historic barn tasting room, refurbished in 2000, will experience a hands-on glimpse into fun and informational vineyard happenings, wines, and their distinctive Grand Chai. The Lucas Winery is proud to feature an interactive wine club where their friends and customers have access to their limited release wines. They also host several events a year, from Great Chefs of San Joaquin County to their very own Chardonnay and ZinStar Zinfandel Retrospectives. The Lucas Winery welcomes guests and visitors Valentine’s Day until Christmas.
