Lodi produces more wine grapes than any other California appellation
Grapes are at the heart of Lodi’s history. They thrive in the perfect blend of temperate climate and loamy soil, a heavenly match that earned the region the name Lodi Appellation in 1986. Today there are more than 85 wineries in and around Lodi, producing some 450 labels. This is a way of life that has been central to Lodi for more than 140 years. Old Vine Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay are specialties of many local wineries, but you’ll also find such unique wines as Spanish and Rhone varietals. Lodi’s fourth and fifthgeneration wine growers are like proud parents; they love to discuss wine and share stories of one of America’s greatest wine-growing regions. There’s a good chance the winemaker is the person topping off your glass.

The Mokelumne River flows along the edge of town and forms the Lodi Lake Wilderness Area—a network of channels and ponds that attract millions of migratory birds each year, including Sandhill Cranes. Short, scenic walking trails crisscross this nature preserve. Lodi offers an abundance of recreation, from kayaking, paddleboarding and rafting to tubing, canoeing, fishing and much more. Cyclists love exploring this region’s scenic back roads, pausing at the many tasting room “rest stops” along the way. Lodi celebrates the sport each year with the Giro D’Vino bike tour in the fall, and the 50k, 100k and 100-mile Tour delle Vigne race in May. In June, both amateurs and pros take to the downtown streets for Cyclefest, a daylong series of exciting action. And for those who love to hit a little white ball down a green fairway, Lodi offers a number of public and private golf courses.
