Great wine begins with a suitable climate and soil, both of which are found in Lodi. Sandy Loam soil coupled with the hot, cold exchange that graces Lodi from day to night creates a utopic environment to cultivate warm-weather varietals including Zinfandel, Cabernet and Syrah.
A certain level of skill, attention to detail and harvest accuracy is required from the vintner as well. What once began as a grape-growing community from the early 1900's until the late 1980's, Lodi is now a thriving wine-producing region adorned with dozens of wineries, including Klinker Brick.
