Harney Lane in Lodi
CALIFORNIA CRAFTED PAIRINGS | SUNDAY, APRIL 7 | 1:30PM

Join us for another year of Wine & Cheese with a fresh theme celebrating our West Coast roots! We're partnering with Lodi's Cheese Central to sample our estate grown Harney Lane wines alongside a selection of California cheeses and regionally sourced accompaniments!

We love that Harney Lane's Grape to Glass approach honors our rich farming history and the Lodi AVA. We were inspired to take a closer look at the specialties of California cheesemakers and other local producers in creating this distinctly regional pairing experience.

Our collaborative Wine & Cheese workshop includes a seated tasting in our cellar, along with a take-home tasting guide! We'll be offering a limited gift pack so you can recreate the tasting experience at your leisure.
