1.  Jeremy Wine Company

6 W Pine St, Lodi, CA 95240, United States, +12093673773


About: Jeremy and Choral Trettevik own Jeremy Wine Co. Their fondest memories were of gatherings with friends and family around a table laden with delectable food and even more delectable wine. Their first harvest (of only around 5 tons) was done in a shared space inside another boutique producer. In their own boutique winery, they now harvest well over 100 tons of grapes per year, and they love to share the resulting wine in their tasting room.

Jeremy has worked in the wine industry for over 20 years and is well-known in the region as one of the industry’s most versatile “jack of all trades.” He started his career in the wine industry in 1990, working in the cellar of a large Lodi winery. He went on to a smaller, midsize producer after three years of pulling hoses and cleaning tanks. He started out in the cellar, but his talent led him to the lab, where he worked alongside the head winemaker studying wines. Four years later, he was hired as the director of marketing at a fast-growing local winery. Jeremy decided to stay put after two years of traveling for his work and started a small business etching wine bottles. His creative ability paved the way for an award-winning graphic design firm that specializes in wine label and marketing content design. After eleven years of designing wine labels, boxes, and point of sale for a variety of local wineries, Jeremy felt compelled to launch his own label. Using everything he’d learned over the previous 20 years, he and Choral turned their downtown studio space into a tasting room in 2010.

4580 CA-12, Lodi, CA 95242, United States, +12093687384


About: In Lodi, they have deep roots. The Michael David name has been more than a winery; it’s a tradition, with over 150 years of family farming. Since the 1860s, they have been farming this land and planting wine grapes since the early twentieth century. Their creators, brothers Michael and David Phillips, are 5th generation grape growers who have raised their families in the vineyard, and Mike’s son Kevin and daughter Melissa are now the 6th generation to join the team. They, more than anyone, recognize the significance of leaving the world in a better state than when you find it for future generations. Their commitment to sustainability stems from their family’s history and love of Lodi.

3.  Berghold Vineyards

17343 Cherry Rd, Lodi, CA 95240, United States, +12093339291


About: In 1986, Joe and Kay Berghold started growing grapes in Lodi. The couple aspired to open their own winery and marketing site for their Lodi estate wines. In 1990, the two set out to make their dream of building a state-of-the-art winery and historic tasting room a reality. The winery and tasting room, which first opened in May 2005, were built to resemble a romantic California barn. The couple’s extensive collection of late-nineteenth-century American Victorian antiques played an important role in the design and construction process. The Berghold estate provides the ideal setting for Lodi wine tastings and tours. The winery boasts beautiful interior and exterior features that are superior in quality and design, combining the old with the modern. Berghold Vineyards brings a passion for fine wine, sculpture, and antiques to life.

4.  Harney Lane Winery

9010 E Harney Ln, Lodi, CA 95240, United States, +12093651900


About: At Harney Lane Winery, they value their family’s farming heritage as a base for their potential success. Since 1907, they have been proud stewards of the estate, tending vineyards on Harney Lane for more than five generations. In 2006, they took a risk and decided to expand their legacy by creating outstanding wines from the same estate vineyards. They sustainably farm 120 acres of their own vineyards on their generational Home Ranch, which are certified green under the Lodi Rules sustainable viticulture scheme. That, they believe, is extremely important. From the vine to the bottle, they have complete control over their wines, ensuring the best possible product for their customers and the environment. Each vine is carefully planted, tended to, and harvested. Their grapes are then hand-picked, fermented in small batches, and aged in barrels in programs exclusive to each of their award-winning wines.

5.  Pondl Winery

665 W Turner Rd, Lodi, CA 95242, United States, +12093673672


About: PONDL Winery started with a simple idea: make good wine, produce something special, and share it! PONDL (PON’DL), which derives its name from the initials of its two creators, Pat O’Neill and David Lujan Jr., is a testament to what happens when an innocent hobby becomes out of hand. Pat’s goal as a winemaker was to create beautiful wines for both wine lovers and those who had never tried wine before. David, on the other hand, was looking for something different – something visually beautiful, classy yet sexy, and most importantly, something fun! As a result, he was dubbed the “Marketing Guy.” They started making their own wines, baby steps at first, after taking classes at UC Davis to improve their wine analysis. An acquaintance with a stray zinfandel vine; a former colleague with a small vineyard; and a network of growers calling from early August to late October offering grapes. They had more wine than they knew what to do with twelve years later. For a number of years, they lived and worked in Silicon Valley, and their weekend excursions brought them to the more rural areas of the state – Russian River, Sonoma Valley, and the Santa Cruz Mountains. Pat was able to retire after nearly four decades in the tech industry. Although David had dabbled in real estate, they were both ready for a change!

6.  Stonum Vineyards

16388 Alpine Rd, Lodi, CA 95240, United States, +12092248130


About: Mike and Kathy Stonum, winemakers, have a straightforward philosophy. Their  method is small batch and labor intensive, similar to that of Europe’s oldest wineries. They  only use quality grapes from their own vineyard and a few other small, family-owned vineyards that are farmed in their style. The grapes are gently treated with very little intervention. Their goal is to preserve the fruit’s balance and dignity while capturing the intense flavors and complexity. Their wines will always be true to the terroir from which they were born. In 1979, the Stonum family bought 17 acres of prime agricultural land in Lodi, California. The estate consisted of eight acres of cherries, seven acres of Tokay grapes and a sixty year old farmhouse. The following quotation has always been the favorite of Stonum Family Matriarch, Joyce Stonum MacPherson, and has guided and inspired the family through years of hard work and sacrifice: “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” -Anatole France in 1896

7.  Mettler Vineyard

7889 E Harney Ln, Lodi, CA 95240, United States, +12093693045


About: The family has been producing wine grapes in the Lodi appellation since the late 1800s. As one of Lodi’s oldest farming families, they take pride in growing their vineyards organically and sustainably. Land integrity, along with responsible farming practices, ensures that their wine grapes are of the highest quality for their wines. Their family is involved from the vineyard to the bottle; growing, harvesting, drilling, wine making and sales. They have always been progressive in terms of their farming techniques. Using integrated pest management, cover crops and composting; and disease control through trellising, planting and leaf removal, they farm land for healthy vines and consistent wine quality.

8.  Van Ruiten Family Winery

340 W Hwy 12, Lodi, CA 95242, United States, +12093345722


About: It was the dream of a young Dutch immigrant to grow quality grapes and to produce truly outstanding wines. John Van Ruiten Sr. settled in the Lodi area after his arrival in the United States shortly after the Second World War. His desire to own was quickly realized when, in the early 1950’s, John bought his first vineyard property with his personal “sweat equity.” He then planted the Zinfandel vineyards and began growing the wine grapes in the Lodi appellation. Van Ruitens believe that hard work and an uncompromising commitment to producing top-quality grapes and award-winning wines are the cornerstones of their business. Five decades later, Van Ruitens farm over 800 acres of wine grapes, with only their optimum fruit destined to bear the name of the family. After more than fifty years, their ambition became a reality as the Van Ruiten Family Winery was built just before the 2000 harvest. Two generations of the Van Ruiten family are now working together to manage the vineyards and the winery.

9.  Twisted Barrel Winery

1376 E Turner Rd D, Lodi, CA 95240, United States, +12093342554


About: Twisted Barrel Winery is offering a new look at the old art. As one of Lodi’s boutique-style wineries, the family business is producing small-scale, high-quality wines specializing in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese varieties. The winery combines family, friendship and an open door policy to raise the bar and create an all-inclusive tasting experience for everyone to enjoy. In the tasting room, extra touches come into play – tasty tidbits, music and no-pressure-vibe. Twisted Barrel Winery started production in 2014 and opened the tasting room in January 2015. However, since 1988, Verl Tanner, Senior Winemaker, has been making wine for family and friends. Moving from Modesto to Lodi, LAVA joined the Lodi Amateur Vintners Association. In 2004, Verl brought his son Mark into the process, and their hobby quickly became a passion, perfecting wines that reflected their individual style and appealed to a wide range of palates. After a long night of bottling, the family and friends sat down and decided that the next step might be to open a commercial winery. Twisted Barrel Winery was born after much deliberation on the name. Above all, the family and friends who make up Twisted Barrel Winery aim to ensure long-term consistency in their creations. People are always going to get a great wine at a fair price. At the Twisted Barrel winery, old and new friends are treated like family, or like they like to call the “framily.”

10.  St. Amant Winery

1 Winemaster Way # I, Lodi, CA 95240, United States, +12093670646


About: St. Amant Winery is a family-owned winery located in Lodi, California, which prides itself on producing handcrafted wines of excellent quality. Founded in 1979 by Tim and Barbara Spencer, St. Amant produces distinctive Portuguese, Spanish and Italian varietal wines other than Zinfandel, California’s own. All their grapes, whether from Lodi or their vineyards in Amador County, are carefully grown and selected for the production of high quality fruit. They strongly believe that all the great wines are made in the vineyard, and meticulously focus on balanced, low-yield vines to produce their handmade wines. Their winemaking follows simple and traditional techniques designed to give maximum expression to each of the vineyard sites. First of all, they spend a lot of time harvesting at the optimum point where sugar, acid and flavor come together in perfect balance. They harvest and carefully sort the grapes at the crusher/destemmer to remove leaves and imperfect clusters. They ferment in small tanks with a high ratio of juice to skin. They handle the must carefully with gentle pumping, delestage, and hand punching. They press and rack small oak barrels for natural malolactic fermentation. And they only use high-quality coopers and a variety of French and American oaks for added complexity. They are bottled with minimal racks, fining, and filtration.
