Lodi is the self-proclaimed Zinfandel Capital of the world producing over 40 percent of California’s premium Zinfandel. Many of the region’s most distinctive wines come from the thousands of acres of “old vines”- some dating back to the 1880’s. Styles range from medium to full-bodied with intense red and black fruit flavors of cherries, raspberries, and blackberries.
Dating back to the late 1800′s, Lodi has a long proud history of producing some of the finest Zinfandel grapes in the state. These distinctive vineyards which survived prohibition by being packed and shipped east for home winemakers, and survived through the planting booms of the 70′s and 80′s by filling the tremendous growth for White Zinfandel, are now emerging as some of the finest Zinfandel wines being produced in California. Growers, vintners, and consumers from around the world are quickly discovering the distinctive character of Lodi Zinfandel.
