Lodi Wine

The Lodi wine region lies in the northern portion of California’s Central Valley, which includes San Joaquin County. The eastern portions are within the Sacramento Valley, while its western parts touch on the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, with noticeably cooler conditions in that section.

Lodi is known for its old vine Zinfandels, with quality production from other varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. One of the more exciting trends in the region is experimentation with Spanish varietals such as Tempranillo, Graciano, and Albarino and the Portuguese Verdelho. Flame Tokay had at one time been the signature grape of the region, now fallen out of favor, but still used for brandy production.

Though Lodi itself is a subregion of Central Valley, it is further divided into the following subregions:

  • Alta Mesa
  • Borden Ranch (home of Woodbridge and Sutter Home)
  • Clements Hills
  • Cosummes River
  • Jahant Read more »

  • Karen Birmingham Sauvignon Blanc 2015


    Super refreshing with beautiful floral and grapefruit notes on the nose with a slight hint of fresh hay. On the palate I get grapefruit, bitter orange, and fresh green melon. Really nice mouth feel and body. Read More

  • Oak Farm Vineyards Barbera Lodi 2013


    This is a bold and aromatic wine with floral notes of violet and rose petal, rich red currant and strawberry fruit and a touch of earth. Dried fig and prune on the nose frames the more fresh fruit flavors of mixed berry and raspberry preserves, soft baking spice coming through towards the finish with delicate structure and a good dose of smoky e...

  • Noble Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 337 2013


    Probably the best Cabernet Sauvignon I've ever had. I was at a yacht club and when I had this for the first time, I had to find out what it was ASAP! My friends have spent over $50 on fancy bottles of Cabernet for special occasions (forgot the names) and this one definitely takes the throne. I only paid 12$ for this bottle and they can definitel... Read More
