Most winemakers agree that great wines are made in the vineyard. To achieve this, Stephen J. Borra, a third-generation Lodi grower has developed an uncompromising viticulture program that began with site selection, followed by matching the soils with rootstalks that minimize vigor.
The 37-acre estate vineyard continues to provide highly sought after Cabernet Grapes and a few small Old Vine Zinfandel plots around the Acampo, Lodi and Woodbridge wine-growing areas also provide intense, high-quality fruit that help us make incredible wines. Each harvest is crushed, aged and bottled on site, with the family and winemaker running every step of the process.
Nestled among acres of lush wine grapes, Harmony Wynelands is an expansive property, surrounded by picturesque gardens and grounds.
Janis and Richard own 120 acres of zinfandel in the Lodi Appellation east of Galt, CA. Janis’ grandfather Barsetti came to America from the southern party of Switzerland in 1903. Her grandfather settled in the Galt area in 1911. Janis’ father and grandparents bought the property where the vineyard exists today, in 1941. Up until 1995, when the vineyard was planted, the land supported a dairy, beef cattle and crop operation. The birth of Barsetti Vineyards as a wine label began in 2001.
The 60 acre property west of Lodi has been owned and farmed by the Spenker family for more than 100 years. At a home winemaking party Chuck and Bettyann met and fell in love. They started the winery in 1994 as an outgrowth of their interest in maintaining and demonstrating the high quality of their Zinfandel grapes.

Jessie's Grove Winery is nestled between the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Lodi, the perfect environment for growing premium winegrapes and producing premium wines.
For those that may not know the story, our winery came to be in 1981, when a less than scrupulous winery filed bankruptcy on us shortly after harvest. We had sold them all our grapes. My father bootlegged the young wines out of their cellar and launched St.Amant Winery.
Our intent is to build upon that original adventuresome spirit, more closely connect our customers with our hand crafted wines and to extend that experience through memorable events, tastings, and all around fun.
From stellar examples of Lodi Zinfandel to classic Napa Cabernet to exciting Rhone wines from the Sierra Foothills, m2 wines are created to fully express the character of the vineyard and the fruit of the vine as wine that is true to itself - balanced, complex, approachable and age-worthy.
