In Italian, “Macchia” means “the spot”. In Lodi, Macchia Winery has been earning a reputation as a spot where discriminating vino buffs can find small lots of high-quality vintages -- at some very reasonable prices. It is a tried-and-true strategy for making exceptional wines that Tim Holdener says is at the heart of his winemaking philosophy. Well aware of the potential for quality that was long ignored by many winemakers outside the Lodi area; the Holdeners make a variety of different Zinfandels, each sporting its own distinctive qualities. – Description from iskicm

  • Macchia Lodi Native Zinfandel Noma Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dry farmed on the east side Inky, powerful, and dark on a nose filled with black fruit, spicy, black pepper, and a whisper of herb. As bright and juicy as this may be it is undoubtedly the most powerful wine of the lineup. Filled with spicy dark, dried berry fruit, this offers an avalanche of spice on the long finish which is packed with candied... Read More

  • Macchia Zinfandel Lodi Mischievous Old Vine 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Complex Zin from Lodi. Cherry on the nose with strong alcohol. On the palate, strong Bing cherries and plums with smoke and pepper. Silky tannins. Long finish. Would be 4.5 if alcohol wasn't as strong. Read More

  • Just tried the Macchia Delicious and it was just that! Yet another winner in their collection. Am looking forward to trying the Barbera (although I don't usually like wines that are too dry).

  • Macchia is one of the go to wineries in Lodi. Tim Holdener is not only a gifted winemaker, he and his wife Lani can be found there most weekends to meet and greet their customers. There wine club members get treated well too. If you like big, bold, tasty wines, Macchia is your kind of winery.
