9. Harney Lane Winery
In 1907, long before it was fashionable to go wine tasting, the ancestors of Harney Lane Winery planted their first vineyard just east of Lodi, along rural Harney Lane. In time the family home was built, which would bear witness to the lives of five generations of grape growers intent on perfecting their farming skills. Still resounding from the rooftop of that original homestead is their family philosophy: Whatever you choose to do in life, do it to the best of your ability. For generations, that’s how they have treated farming, and now, that’s how they develop their wines.
