Late Harvest Zinfandel

Late Harvest Zinfandel

Frey Vineyards

Beautiful vineyard and land. Frey produces organic and biodynamic wines- and is the oldest organic winery in the country. The Frey family, 10 out of 12 children run the vineyard and live on the 90 acres. The wine was tasty. I haven't had a lot of organic wines but I liked the organic Zin and biodynamic Petite Syrah.

Pozo Valley Winery

The vineyard was planted in 1995 by Steve Arnold, with the help of his wife Debbie, and children Joey & Michelle.  For years special attention has been given to producing grapes of the highest quality.  Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot were the varietals chosen for their suitability to the valley's soils and climate. In 2007 the Arnold family expanded ever so slightly by adding 1/2 an acre of Viognier to their 32 acre vineyard.

Bella Vineyards & Wine Caves

This winery is situated in a cave, which makes the wine tasting experience a little different, but pretty cool. Everyone was really nice. Like a lot of wineries, they charge $10 for a tasting fee, but at Bella you get to do much more than just sampling wine. The tasting tour began with the pairing of a Rosé with some portuguese sausage and some friend plantains. You then proceed to the wine caves, which were filled with live Spanish guitar music.

Milliaire Winery

The girl that poured for us was the single most welcoming and knowledgeable tasting room employee we dealt with that day. She was interested in what we were looking for but gently encouraged us to try some other wines they had available without being pushy.Most of all when you walk out of the winery you come away with such a great experience.

Terre Rouge & Easton Wines

Nice tasting room with a wide selection of wines is what you will find at Terre Rouge & Easton Wines. There was a wine festival that weekend and all the tasting rooms were bustling. Whats nice about Terre Rouge is that they actually had the space to accommodate everyone. So many wines, so little time.

Vino Con Brio

In 1999, this family bonded their winery called Vino Con Brio, meaning “Wine with Passion” in Italian. Matzin was their other label for their Old Vine Zinfandel Wines. Vino Con Brio specialized in Rhone, Italian and out of the ordinary varietals, such as Pinotage, that are so well-suited to Lodi's climate.

Vino Con Brio is now closed.
The Matson Family has retired and the property is now owned by Mettler Family Vineyards.
