Whenever we are wine tasting, we ask our wine guide about local wineries that they enjoy. Who knows the winery scene better than someone who is part of it? During a recent trip to Lodi, one winery name kept coming up: Bokisch Vineyards. Here’s how our first visit went:

Pondl Winery

Food and wine pairings can improve both parties or create a hot mess. When pairings go well it is a thing of wonder. Unexpected, yet delicious pairings elevate such a pairing to the level of magic. A recent visit to Pondl Winery displayed this magic for pairing after pairing!

St. Amant Winery

St. Amant Winery

Discovering a hidden gem of a winery brings us boundless joy! A recent wine tasting trip to Lodi gave us several opportunities to experience new wineries. One of the most hidden among them turned out to be an amazing experience. We are definitely adding St. Amant Winery to our “can’t miss” list!

A Blast at Klinker Brick

A Blast at Klinker Brick

In masonry, clinker bricks are made when excessive heat over fires wet clay, producing bricks that are dense, dark, and durable. In Lodi, Klinker Brick Winery produces wines that are dark, durable, and downright delicious!

Harney Lane Winery and More

Harney Lane Winery and More

No winery tour in Lodi is complete without a visit to Harney Lane Winery. This family-owned winery combines so many desirable attributes: great wine, beautiful architecture, fun staff and an extra bonus, convenient picnic tables!

Returning to d’Art Wines

Returning to d’Art Wines

Making wine is unquestionably an artistic endeavor. Many times, this artistic flair is expressed in other ways, too. That’s what makes visiting wineries and tasting rooms so much fun: seeing the unique expression of art in the wine and so much more. One classic example of art in every form is a visit to d’Art Wines in Lodi.

Omega Winery Redux

The Lodi wine region is home to wineries big and small. Not surprisingly, winery size does not predict winery quality. We love discovering small wineries with huge skills, so we build our tours with lots of new, unexplored wineries. Sometimes, though, a winery is so nice that we have to visit twice. That was exactly the case when we visited Omega Cellars to explore it all over again.
