Lucchesi Opens New Tasting Room

When a wine tasting room that represented several wine makers closed in Grass Valley, a long standing Nevada County winemaker took the opportunity to move into the vacant building. Lucchesi Vineyards, whose original downtown tasting room was on the corner by the Del Oro Theater has moved across the street and down the block into the larger tasting room.

Lucchesi’s move to the new facility allows them to take advantage of the larger space and changes in laws that allowed the winery to sell by the glass.
