Lucero Vineyards & Winery is owned by Dan and Marian Lucero on family owned property dating back to 1906. We are located in Dobbins, California; 72 miles northeast of Sacramento in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.
Years prior to the vineyards being planted, our family ran cattle and farmed these gentle slopes amongst the Ponderosa Pine trees. Since then, we have looked for other uses of our land.
After his retirement as a teacher, Dan & Marian decided to start a vineyard. They and their children took many viniculture classes at U.C. Davis and with their four daughters and their families, hand planted the first vineyard of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay rootstock in 1993. The Merlot field followed in 1997 hand planted with potted bench grafts.
These estate vineyards produce small crops of intensely flavored grapes. The combination of warm days, cool nights and rich red clay soil contributes to our deep color, elegant flavors and full-bodied wines.
Our emphasis is on growing and making limited production, ultra premium wines. We take pride in our wines and look forward to you experiencing our variety of wines.
