Vintage 2015, 2nd of the 3 'Drought' Vintages

A total of 313 cases produced. Again, just like 2014, lack of water created a limited amount of high quality fruit; clusters harvested were on average, about 20% smaller in volume than a typical year. Dark Style has 4% Barbera and 4% Petite Sirah added as a blend.

*This is pre-release pricing; once wine matures, prices are likely to increase ~2 months bottle age*

Vintage 2014, 1st of the 3 'Drought' Vintages

A total of 280 cases produced due to the limited amount of high quality available fruit on the vine. A significant amount of fruit was damaged due to heat and therefore required specific hand sorting during harvest. Dark Style has 9% Teraldego added as a blend.

First vintage with new label design.

At the Tasting Room, Febuary 1st 2017

Vintage 2012

A total of 413 cases produced. Very typical year in Lodi; no Petite Sirah made - which really sucked. I had to throw all the Petite out because it smelled like ass. Zinfandel aged for 36 months in barrel. Dark Style has 5% Syrah added as a blend.

Old label design.


No longer available to wine allocation program
Still at the Tasting Room, estimated to run out in Feb 2018

Miscellaneous Information

Finding the tasting room

Although the winery proper is located on Peltier Road in Lodi, it is not generally open to the public. The Draconis tasting room is found at the Old Sugarmill on South River Road in Clarksburg, which is approx 10 minutes south of Downtown Sacramento. The Old Sugarmill is sort of like a co-op of tasting rooms; Draconis is not the only tasting room there - in fact, our suite is shared with Perry Creek Winery. Links here to the Old Sugarmill and a Google map below.

The Allocation List

We offer a wine allocation list that allows purchase of Draconis wine at discount. Our program is unique such that its main feature is a progressive discount - that is, discount starts at 20% off retail and grows by 5% every year thereafter until the max discount limit is reached. Depending on plan choice (either 12 bottles or 18 bottles a year), you can reach either a 35% or 50% maximum discount.

Getting Wine Online and Shipping

If we have wine available, then we'd be happy to ship you some provided you do not live in a no-ship state. Please check the link for states we can currently ship to and use the contact form to ask about shipping prices.

Is the Wine Sold Anywere Else?

No. This wine is not 'allowed' to be sold in restaurants, wine shops, or stores of any kind.

Other Labels

There are two other labels made by Draconis Vineyards.

Roisin Dubh, (pronounced 'Roe-sheen Dove') is also available in the Draconis tasting room. These wines are made quicker, safer, and cost less than Draconis wines. Different variteals are available throughout the year. Currently, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel Rose are on the list for the Dubh.

Our third brand is Le Serre (pronounced 'Le Sair') and is available only to Old Sugarmill events at this time, such as weddings and corporate meetings. Please contact the Old Sugarmill event staff for inquiries about Le Serre for your occasion.

Donations and Event Participation

Draconis does not provide wine for donation. While we support your cause, we struggle with just enough wine for the tasting room and our wine allocation programs. That being said, Draconis can be found at only one event per year; of which is determined on a first come first serve basis. For 2018, we are already booked for the 'Taste of Fair Oaks' in June.

However, you can hire Draconis and staff for your event if you so desire - we have a range of fees that span most event requirements; we are happy to work and pour for you. You can even hire the winemaker / owner to discuss the unique process Draconis uses to make the wine! Use the contact form below to inquiry.

Get in Touch

Please use the form below to send us a note. Our response time is usually pretty fast, but no longer than 12 hours.

While we appreciate all donation requests, Draconis DOES NOT provide wine for charitable events of any kind.
