Stanton Lange Vineyards / Owner & Grower
HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU BEEN FARMING WINEGRAPES?
I have been farming winegrapes for 52 years, since 1969. I am a 4th generation farmer.
HOW MANY ACRES DO YOU FARM AND WHICH VARIETIES DO YOU GROW?
Presently, we are farming 333 acres of some of the more popular or premium varieties.
I FARM BECAUSE…
It is how I grew up; it is a part of me. I love watching the vineyard grow during the season and I feel great satisfaction from shepherding it to harvest.
HOW HAS THE LODI WINE REGION CHANGED OVER THE YEARS?
Oh, I never dreamed we would be doing the things we are doing to grow winegrapes today; technology and innovation have increased tenfold.
WHAT ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY IN THE CENTER CONSOLE OR GLOVEBOX OF YOUR TRUCK OR CAR?
Tums, eyeglasses, pencil, and paper.
WHAT WOULD PEOPLE BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I like driving race cars.
IF YOU COULD MEET ANYONE, LIVING OR DEAD, WHO WOULD THAT BE AND WHY?
Dale Earnhardt – he was the greatest!
