Lucchesi Vineyards & Winery Tasting Room will be moving into a new, larger location in downtown Grass Valley.

The tasting room will be relocated from 167 Mill St., its current location, to 128 Mill St., more than tripling the square footage from about 500 to 1,800, said Mario Clough, vineyard manager and assistant winemaker, who was adopted into the Lucchesi family.

Visitors at the new location can expect music and food every Friday and Saturday night and space for parties and events, said Lucchesi President Linda Clough.

The tasting room may also serve as a brewery, offering house-made beer selections.

“We loved this little space. We’ve enjoyed very much renting here and being by the movie theater for nine and a half years,” Linda Clough said. “Time flies when you’re having fun.”

The relocation will be finalized once the Alcohol Beverage Control license for the new location is processed.

“We’re planning on more events, more private events, more music and entertainment … a lot of the same things we’re doing now, just on a bigger scale,” Mario Clough said. “As soon as we get our license transferred, we’ll have a soft opening and, by the end of the month, a grand opening. They said it will be transferred probably some time this week.”
