Live from Lodi Lodi California has slowly become a real powerhouse in the California wine scene, but it's not a region that gets much attention. Slowly but surely, generations of farmers in this plain state-like piece of California, just 90 minutes east of San Francisco, have made a name for themselves, first as great growers that supplied the country with high quality fruit at affordable prices, and more recently as winemakers, taking the fruits of their labors and putting their name on the label. Generations of German and Italian forebears must be proud!

I recently got the chance to visit Lodi and sit down with Lodi Winegrower's Commision Program Director Stuart Spencer and Macchia Winery owner and winemaker Tim Holdener to discuss the wines of Lodi, the challenges and advantages the region offers its farmers, and the state of winemaking in this up and coming region. I was surprised by the stories I heard during my stay in Lodi, as well as by the wines that ranged from the expected, powerful and plush to wines of real finesse and elegance. Come give a listen and learn a bit about California's not so little secret.
