Lodi Named Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine
November 8, 2015
Lodi’s growing reputation for the fine wines it produces has captured the attention ofWine Enthusiast magazine. It was named Wine Region of the Year by the magazine’s editors!
Each year since 2000, the editors of Wine Enthusiast honor those whose vision has impacted the wine and spirits industries with their Wine Star Awards. Their winners are notable for their energy and groundbreaking vision, coupled with the courage to take risks and the skill to succeed.
The Lodi American Viticultural Area (AVA), Wine Enthusiast magazine editors noted, boasts 85 wineries and grows more than 100 grape varieties. It’s grabbed international attention for the quality of the new wines made from its legendary old Zinfandel vines and a profusion of young, diverse grape varieties. . . . This success could not have happened, however, without the seeds planted 25 years ago by the eight existing Lodi wineries and a few dozen grape growers.
