Best Lodi Wine Tour
For this tour we have selected our top 4 wine tour destinations in The Lodi Wine Region.
It is hard to talk about a Wine Tour like Destination Lodi Wine Tours and Lodi Wineries without talking about the history of Lodi Wine.
Lodi has been growing wine grapes since the mid 1800s and today is the largest appellation wine region in California with over 110,000 acres in production.
Known for hearty Old Vine Zinfandels, The Lodi Wine Region is also home to many of California’s leading varieties, and has long been a leading producer of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc.
On our Lodi Wine Tours visitors will find Lodi wine tasting rooms large and small, brand new and decades old. Although variety is abundant, one constant remains, The great Lodi Wine experience. Visitors to our best Lodi wineries will often find themselves sipping great Lodi wine with fourth or fifth generation wine makers, who are still passionate about their Lodi Wine.
Today, The Lodi Wine Region produces over 100 different varieties and offers a vast portfolio of diverse wines.
With tour destination wineries like Michael David Winery, Oak Farm Vineyards, Abundance Vineyards, Harney Lane Winery and soo many more, you are sure to find a selection of wine that you will come back to over and over again.
You will not be disapointed!!
Michael David Winery
Originally devoted to vegetables, the Phillips’ farms evolved to include many different fruits, including fifteen different wine varietals that were shipped throughout the country during Prohibition with instructions on “how not to have the grapes turn into wine”. Thereby, Prohibition was good for Lodi growers, with families everywhere keeping up the tradition of wine with meals by ordering these grapes and “juice” to be bottled at home.
These days, 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.
The vineyards are irrigated by the Mokelumne River, which carries crystal-clear water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, depositing minerals into the rich soils upon which the grapes thrive.
The Michael David name is more than just a winery; it’s a culture. Visit the tasting room, and shop all of the wine brands, including Freakshow, 7 Deadly Zins, Lust, Rage, Earthquake, Inkblot, Rapture and more!

Love. Laughter. Family. These are the three main ingredients they pour into every bottle of Harney Lane wine. Blended with delicious estate grown fruit, they meticulously produce small lots of handcrafted wines that bring out the best flavors Lodi Wine Country has to offer.
In 1907, long before it was fashionable to go wine tasting, their ancestors planted their first vineyard just east of Lodi, along rural Harney Lane. In time the family home was built, which would bear witness to the lives of five generations of grape growers intent on perfecting their farming skills.
Still resounding from the rooftop of that original homestead is their family philosophy: Whatever you choose to do in life, do it to the best of your ability. For generations, that’s how they have treated farming, and now, that’s how they develop their wines.
Abundance Vineyards is a family owned and operated boutique winery. It has evolved from hard work and creative minds melding together to create over a decade of quality, fine standing wines The owners, Dino and Ron Mencarini, have been pioneers in the Lodi winegrowing region since before 1951. Their passion for the industry brought about their interest in producing great wines for an even greater value. The family lives by the philosophy of “Good friends, good food and good wine bring about an ABUNDANTLY good time!”
