For wine travelers looking for “discovery,” there’s no place like Lodi. Nestled just east of the San Francisco Bay and south of Sacramento, this historic region is teeming with life. A network of delta waterways and major rivers flow into the area from the east and west, bringing with them rich mineral deposits. In these deep, fertile soils grow an abundance of wine grapes (more than 125, to be exact) as well as fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Winemakers at more than 60 boutique wineries offer tastings of unique varietal wines and chefs at family-owned restaurants work closely with local farmers to offer fresh and sustainable cuisine. Along the region’s waterways, thousands of acres of natural, marsh-like habitats provide homes for hundreds of species of birds, mammals, and fish. Like its wines, the people here are innovative, diverse, and approachable.
Now you can experience the elements which make Lodi such a special place.
