A Climate for Quality
The Lodi Appellation has a classic Mediterranean climate featuring warm days and cool evenings. Situated directly east of the San Francisco Bay at the edge of the Sacramento River Delta, cool “delta breezes” provide a reliable natural air conditioning throughout the growing season. This perfect climate allows Lodi growers to consistently produce delicious full-flavored wines that contain a refreshing natural acidity.
Lodi receives the majority of its 17” annual rainfall during the winter months. This relatively dry growing season reduces pest and disease problems, and provides growers with precise control of vine growth through careful irrigation management. This unique combination allows Lodi grapes to reach physiological ripeness with minimal impact upon the land.
