Great Place to Start
Your Adventure In
the Lodi Wine Region
I have a confession to make I love checking out visitor centers when I travel! The Lodi Wine and Visitor Center is a great place to start if you are new to the Lodi Wine Region.
Lodi Wine – Check It Out!
Location: 2545 West Turner Road, Lodi, CA. (209) 365-0621.
Hours: Daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
I enjoyed exploring the grounds with its beautiful landscaping of fauna and flora. Also, there is an area devoted to wine grapes and the varietals are marked, so you know what the vines look like for the various varietals.
Wine Map and Information
I like to go to the source and ask the staff of the Visitor Center for recommendations on wineries to check out! I enjoy a wine tasting bar, but love to go out to the wineries even more.
Lodi Wineries – Check It Out!
Lodi Wine Events – Check It Out! ZinFest. Chocolate and Wine Weekend. Lodi Road Trip Passport. Oh My!!!
Wine Tasting Bar Anyone???
The Visitor Center has a wine tasting bar that features a wide selection of regional wines. Eight wines are served on a daily basis and the wines are rotated weekly. You can purchase bottles of wine too.
Tasting Fee: $5 for a flight of 4 wines to try and taste.
The Wine & Roses Hotel, Restaurant and Spa
Check out the Wine and Roses hotel, restaurant and spa too! The Visitor Center is located on the grounds of The Wine & Roses.
LoCA – The Wines of Lodi California Wine Club
I checked this out and thought it was pretty SWEET!
Wine Club Members receive 3 to 4 bottles of different Lodi appellation wines 4 times a year. Each shipment also includes a newsletter, tasting notes, and recipes chosen by the winemaker for their specific wine. The average cost per shipment is $70 to $90 plus shipping. Enjoy exclusive hand picked wines for the Lodi appellation!
