The Lucca Winery is located in the farming community of Ripon, part of the Valley of San Joaquin. In this prosperous rural environment, wines are made from grapes that are grown in robust vineyards in the Oakley Delta Basin. Consider their award-winning wines, from the Grande blend to the Mourvedre varietal.

 

Dionisio Lucchesi immigrated from Italy to Oakley, a small farming community in the Delta region of the Central Valley. He bought land along O'Hara Avenue and planted grapes, almonds and apricots. His love of the land and his passion for farming were passed on to his son, Guido, who continued to take care of the trees, the vines and the sandy soil in which they grew. During Guido 's tenure, apricots and almonds were harvested and sold, but a small portion of each grape harvest was kept for his own venture into homemade wine. Without any formal training, Guido made wines from his zinfandel grapes, which he shared with his family and friends.

 

In 1990, Guido 's son, Alan, took over the management of Lucchesi Family Farms. The operation has been extended to include over 400 acres of vines. Alan shared the grapes he had harvested from his Oakley estate with his brother, Mark, an almond and peach farmer in Ripon. Mark started making small batches of wine to share. After a number of years, his production increased, and he began experimenting with mixtures. Mark's interest in crafting and refining his homemade wine culminated in Lucca Winery.

 

Grape vines grown in sandy soils in and around Oakley have the advantage of being forced to reach deep into the soil for water and nutrients, creating grapes that have a deep taste. The climate in Oakley fluctuates between the warm days of summer and the cool breezes of the Delta. The soil and climate combine to produce the fine wines of the winery of Lucca.
