Oak Farm Vineyards

A Family Winery

That Is Deeply Rooted

In the Lodi Wine Region

Oak Farm is one of the oldest properties in the Central Valley and founded in 1864! A great gathering place to stay a while to taste the wines and explore the grounds (a total of 70 acres with 10 acres of grounds for guests to explore and enjoy). The winery tasting staff knows their wines and offers great hospitality and customer service! Thank you for a great experience.


Oak Farm is so worth the drive out to the country to experience their wines! I wanted to while away the day with a bottle or two.

Location:  23627 North DeVries Road, Lodi, CA.

Tasting Room Hours:  Open Thursday through Monday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Closed Tue & Wed). There is a $5 Tasting Fee.

The Wines

Passionate About Wine!!!

I loved that there was a nice balance between white wines and red wines.

The Dolce Blanc – Translated means “Sweet White”

Chardonnay – Aged In Stainless Steel

Floral aromas on the nose with pear and apples in the glass. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks blended with neutral oak barrels. Crisp, Refreshing and Smooth on the finish!

Chardonnay – Aged In Oak

LOVED this Chardonnay and it had my nose and my palate guessing as to what was all in there! This would pair well with a variety of foods due to the depth of aromas and flavors in this varietal. A Breathe of Fresh Air and Refreshing too!

Sauvignon Blanc

Great Balance – freshness, acidity, fruity! Aroma of peach, a nose of lemon and a taste of grapefruit and/or citrus.

Verdelho – Silver Medal Winner at the 2013 Consumer Wine Awards


I wanted to lick my wine glass after tasting the deliciousness of this wine! Plum Jam and Dark, Black Cherries. I thought I could smell the baked, brown sugar goodness in this varietal!

Tievoli – An “Italian Style” Red Blend

#1 – Tievoli is the Italian slang word for “You Want This”.

#2 – Tievoli backwards is “I Love It”.

My initial thoughts in tasting this varietal is get me some Pizza, Spicy Sausage or a Hearty, Meaty Red Sauce! Elegance in a glass and medium-bodied. Ripe, Lushness and Soft that Dances On My Palate with a Lingering Finish!


Dolcetto – Means “Little Sweet One”

This varietal comes from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy.
