The tasting room is complete. Since we closed December 11th, 2021, we’ve been busy. The Tasting room is complete and showcases our “perfectly imperfect’ ambiance we were so wanting to achieve. The bar area is set and ready to host a few to sit and enjoy our wines. If your feeling the need for a small bite, we’re now selling some items which support a few of Brentwoods local businesses.

Back in 2015, Bryan and I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Burkholder with East County today at our residence where we were having fun being home winemakers but yet aspired to become a commercial winery.  Michael wrote an amazing article and we were pleased with just how many people it reached.  We are just as excited about the current article by Michael sharing the amazing wines offered and how well we all placed in the SF Chronicle Wine competition.  Enjoy the article and enjoy all the wines our area has to offer.  Very proud of how well our community was represented. Please see the East County Today article

It has been a while since I’ve last blogged as life has been zipping right on by. The winery is coming together beautifully. We are tying up all the loose ends so we can get the final on the building approved and OPEN!! Our target date to open by reservation only is Saturday August 7th. Our new website will be up within the next couple weeks. You will be able to make reservations to come out and sip on some wine. Our entire team is counting down the days to share our wines and make many memories.   UPCOMING EVENTS Once the website is up you will be able to purchase

I’ve been struggling for quite awhile with putting words to paper. In reflecting upon 2020 I count our blessings for all the good things that took place and the miracle of our grandson being born in January along with so many other precious babies that were born. Although there were countless events of goodness to remind us just how amazing and wonderful GOD is, we are also reminded that there are events that occur in life that don’t bring us happiness but instead bring us sorrow and our out of our control. It’s in those times of sorrow that we need to turn to our faith even more

As I sit here at the vineyard surrounded by dirt and a light peaceful breeze, I am in awe as to just how much has been done is such a short period of time.  As tasks are checked off our list the excitement to share the serenity we have created here at Serendipity Cellars grows, however, we are quickly reminded there are still some pretty big items to complete.  We do have the approval of our conditional use permit pending all conditions are met, i.e. septic, power and paving the entry way, which we are working on diligently. In the meantime, harvest has been quite the experience in what

The Vermentino and Tempranillo harvest was a little sooner than anticipated due to high temperatured weather. The brix of both varietals were just where Bryan wanted them to be with a balanced PH. Our day began at 5:00am with all the essentials; headlamps, clippers, baskets, family and friends. The sky contributed its own beauty with the moon and bright stars. Little did we know, once the fruit was picked and ready to be crushed that our brand new machine would yet again give us problems. Although frustrations quickly rose, we decided to sanitize the good ole crusher we used for years past as a home winemaker and get

August 13, 2018 Bryan and i closed escrow on 15 acres of agriculture property which is now known as Serendipity Cellars at Lucier Family Vineyards. Effective August 3, 2020 we were issued our Conditional Use Permit. This was the last item we were waiting for to be completely compliant. To say we are excited is an absolute understatement. Aside from being compliant, our winery building is up and the exterior is painted. Electrical begins in the next week. We are counting our blessings as our vision is becoming reality. While our winery building is being built, we are bonded to make wine in the little shed on the property. Its’

Our first commercial harvest was all we could ask for and then some. As always, the help of family and friends overwhelms our hearts with all the kindness and love. We have been blessed with so many kind, giving and oh so fun people in our lives. Our morning began by meeting at the little “shit shed” at 6:00am and began harvesting Sauvignon Blanc at a friends vineyard at 6:30am. It worked out perfect for this to be our smallest harvest of the season as we weren’t real successful in figuring out the new equipment the night before. It’s funny how things work out sometimes, here we have all
