Abundance Vineyards is a family owned and operated boutique winery. It has evolved from hard work and creative minds melding together to create over a decade of quality, fine standing wines The owners, Dino and Ron Mencarini, have been pioneers in the Lodi winegrowing region since before 1951. Their passion for the industry brought about their interest in producing great wines for an even greater value. The family lives by the philosophy of “Good friends, good food and good wine bring about an ABUNDANTLY good time!” As a child, Dino helped both his parents and grandparents in turning soil to harvest various kinds of crops, making him a ‘child of the soil.’ Although he enjoyed helping with the other crops they were growing, he developed a special interest for the winemaking process. My vision of the winery,’ Dino explains, “is to give the average working person a high quality wine for an affordable price.”

2005 Chardonnay
Santa Barbara Vineyards

Santa Barbara County has long been known for its extraordinary conditions for growing certain wine grapes. The east to west valleys serve as weather barriers, allowing the fog and ... morecooler climate to come in and keep the scorching heat and dry weather out. This allows time for the grapes to fully ripen over a longer period of time, which ultimately brings more complexity to the wine.

2006 "Bountiful Blanc"
Mencarini Vineyards

Our Bountiful Blanc is our first release of a white blend, and just in time! The blend combines both varietals, Symphony and Sauvignon Blanc, which come from local vineyards on the ... more east side of Lodi.

The pale straw colored wine starts with your typical floral nose, characteristic of the Symphony varietal. After slight aeration, bright fruit flavors of apricot and freshly cut grass surround the glass reminiscent of summertime. Our Bountiful Blanc is a well balanced, multi-purposed wine with just the right amounts of acid and natural fruit flavors.

The fresh and fruity nose combined with the long fruity finish make this wine the perfect summer aperitif. Enjoy this wine at a barbeque or picnic, on the water or in the woods, with light hors d’oeuvres, any fish or chicken dish, or just enjoy a glass by itself!

2005 Merlot
Sierra Foothills Vineyards

Our 2005 Sierra Foothills Merlot was brought to us by our neighbors at Perry Creek in Amador County. The hot dry summer and cool fall evenings make this an ideal location for full ... morebodied Merlot to reach full potential.

The first layer of this deep blue/red colored wine releases aromas of black cassis, leather and vanilla. With the second layer, you will taste a light cherry and oak essence which will open to big bodied tannins bringing you into you third layer of a well balanced and long lasting finish.

As a whole, this Merlot is incredibly well structured, making if perfect for most heavy dishes. Enjoy this wine with any thick pasta, roast or other red meats.

2005 Syrah
Mencarini Vineyards - Lodi

This is our first Syrah coming out of our own Mencarini Family Vineyards, and a proud completion for Abundance Vineyards.

The deep garnet color of this wine is typic ... moreal of most Syrahs, however the plum and oak nose of this wine set it apart from its competition.

Our 2005 Syrah has rich plum flavors balanced with ample tannins and oak. The long, fruity finish of this wine proves why it is a perfect example of Syrah, rich in flavor with a robust yet balanced structure.

Enjoy this wine with rich meat dishes, wild game, and anything in a heavy sauce.

2005 Red Blend
Mencarini Vineyards - Lodi

The 2005 ABUNDANTLY RICH RED is made entirely from our Mencarini Family grapes in Lodi. This vintage of our famous Rich Red is another stellar addition to our reputation for produc ... moreing outstanding, value oriented wines.

The rich blend of old California varietals Zinfandel and Carignane leaves nothing to the imagination. This wine is loaded with intense fruity aromas of Bing cherries, plums and blackberries in contrast with chocolate and toasty aromas contributed by the judicious use of oak barrels. The mouth feel is full with soft, ripe tannins, and the finish is long and almost sweet without being sugary.

This is a “zero intimidation” wine that can be enjoyed with a variety of foods. Cheers!

2005 Old Vine Zinfandel
Mencarini Vineyards - Lodi

Lodi holds a namesake for wonderfully sought after Old Vine Zinfandels. These Old Vines demand a kind of respect when caring for their fruit, thus yield a juice rich, spicy and per ... morefectly structured. This relationship can serve as a metaphor for the Mencarni family, who has served many generations, passing on their vines to third generation brothers, Dino and Ron.

Our Old Vine Zinfandel surrounds the palate sound and strurdy, eveloped in spicy clove and juicy berry concentrate. Mature oak tannins frame a well balanced, sturdy wine with moderate alcohol that enhances the lengthy finish. We have created a wine to sit and think about.

Enjoy this wine with a variety of foods from fresh tomato sauces on pastas, your favorite Italian food to grilled meats and BBQ or with and array of unique and strong cheeses. We also suggest simply enjoying this wine by itself; a true expression of a classical American Wine!

Petite Sirah
Rate this wine

2004 Petite Sirah
Mencarini Vineyards - Lodi

The 2004 Petite Sirah is our very first release and a proud accomplishment. It is an opulent blend of 15% Lodi Zinfandel and 85% Lodi Petite Sirah, both from the Mencarini Vineyard ... mores.

The dark garnet plum color of this wine is enough to get any connoisseur interested. On the nose, this Petite opens with slightly spice and coffee aromas and continues with ripe Bing cherries and blackberries. With further aeration of the wine, the aroma profile develops with more ripened fruit flavors overpowering the spice. The mouth feel is well balanced for a young wine. The fuit flavors continue to ripen and start to pop while the finish leaves you wanting a second glass.

This wine would be best enjoyed with any beef or lamb dish, or even your favorite grilled eggplant recipe. Cheers!
