California Delta Visitor Information

Lodi Wine Tasting

Located directly east of San Francisco at the edge of the Sacramento River Delta, the Lodi appellation is noted for its classic Mediterranean climate and its distinctive sandy soils that provide the perfect environment for the production of world-class wines. Lodi has over 75,000 acres of vineyards and almost 60 wineries leading the state in grape production of the top five premium wine grapes – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel. Its vineyards grow over 40% of all the California Zinfandel, including many 100 year old vines, and dwarf every other region. Its grape growing history goes back to the mid 1800’s when gold miners turned to farming and discovered the regions ability to support vineyards.

Today Lodi is a thriving community and has become a well developed wine touring destination. Thirty-six wineries have tasting rooms offering visitors a range of wine tasting experiences. There are five large producers in the area making hundreds of thousands of cases of wine while others may make only a few barrels. Some producers have been around for decades sharing knowledge and facilities with those new to the business. Many are family affairs and may even be run by 5th generation grape growers.

The Wine & Visitor Center is a great introduction to the delicious wines of the Lodi Appellation. Expert staff will lead guests through a guided tasting of some of the region’s finest wines. The Visitor Center features hundreds of Lodi wines from the nearly 80 local vintners offering guests a truly unique experience. Eight wines are served on a daily basis, and the wines are rotated weekly.
