Lapis Luna translates to “stone” and “moon.” The labels showcase 400 year old copperplate engravings that depict the relationship between the earth, the moon, and the affect on us. “On our label, the heroes are depicted striving to connect with the moon and looking to it for inspiration, just as we do when creating our wines...” Started in 1999, the Lapis Luna Winery has developed great long term relationships with small growers in Lodi and North Coast to source some great quality fruit for a good value. Partners Drew Stapp and Andrew Nelson purchased the winery this past year after leaving Rabble Wine Company in Paso Robles. With their experience and relationships they plan to continue elevating quality and introduce the wines to more people.
