This place is a show stopper! Large tasting room with an unbelievable antique bar from a brothel. Magnificent sculptures and antique furniture. How could this place be any better? They serve wine, very generous pours. Ted was amazing, lots of information about the wines and winery. The owner was pouring wine and is very friendly and approachable. Such a great experience I had to join their wine club.
Staff are very nice and helpful. Wines are good if you prefer full bodied wines. Back outdoor area is small but you can also sit out front. Inside has interesting decor and there is a second room that you can enjoy but is primarily for events. Would recommend as a stop on your Lodi wine tasting tour.
It was great, quite environment and nice weather in July and beautiful stuff for buying.
Why does one go wine tasting? To find outstanding wines or to enjoy a pleasant afternoon? The wines vary from bland to extremely good. And that varies from vintage to vintage. Overall they tend away from dryness and complexity. The GSM is always good and sometimes outstanding. Crankcase and Capitalist are not my favorite when released. They need aging and decanting to really play out so they don't taste well. But they are solid wines. The desert wines do excel. (Be nice and engaging and you may be indulged in sampling, but they are not on the tasting menu.) Now as far as the winery as a destination: It's a beautiful location with outstanding antique bars and wine cabinets. At Christmas time, it a blast with the owners wife creating gorgeous Santa Clauses, which I will not try to describe. Generally the staff is welcoming and nice, but I highly recommend getting to know the owners. Engage Joe and he will talk forever. He has an interesting history. He will also get to know you quickly and will greet you with a very personal touch. If you are a wine club member, you will be treated like a king and you can bring guests as often as you like. But, there are certainly better wines for the money in Lodi. BTW: I RARELY give 5 stars.
