Husband and wife team, Tim and Lani Holdener, who started the operation in the Lodi Appellation in 2001, have scoured California's premium vineyards to find the best grapes for over seven Zinfandels bottled and a handful of promising Italian varietals offered by Macchia.
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.
Located in the heart of California’s Lodi Wine Appellation, the Grady Family Vineyards produces high quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel & Pinot Grigio winegrapes.
"As a family we explore new opportunities, nurture those that can make a difference, and pass along knowledge gained from one generation to the next."
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.

Helen and Dave Dart started their dream as home winemakers with a passion for great wines. After winning several awards in that category, they decided to make small lot commercial wines to share with like-minded enthusiasts.
Michael and David Phillips represent the fifth generation of growers in Lodi, and things are changing. With 650 acres of premium wine grapes, there is plenty of room for experimentation and innovation.
Nestled among acres of lush wine grapes, Harmony Wynelands is an expansive property, surrounded by picturesque gardens and grounds.
One of the unique aspects of Heritage Oak Winery is that our customers are always invited to enjoy this beautiful piece of land we live on. To make this possible we have developed a hiking trail down to a secluded beach along the Mokelumne River where you can enjoy a quiet picnic.
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.
