Lodi Chronicles: Legendary Ancient Vine Bechthold Vineyard

There is one ancient vine vineyard – Bechthold Vineyard that stands apart from the rest.

Last week, I shared with you that writing this blog for the last six years has led me to some unexpected opportunities. I’ve been a correspondent for the American Winery Guide, writing reviews of wineries, for a couple of years (I know hard work, but somebody has to do it).   I’ve been sharing those reviews on this blog via my “No Reservations Wine Tasting” posts.

Since late last year, I began contributing to Snooth’s Wine Writer’s Series.  Last week I shared my most recent contribution – Chillable Summertime Red Wines.  I’ll be sharing more of my contributions here on the blog.

My latest wine writing exploit is contributing to Visit Lodi! Conference & Visitors Bureau blog.

Writing for Visit Lodi feels more personal for me.  Lodi is a region I’ve come to know and love.  It feels like I’ve had a front row seat to its remarkable evolution.   The quality and diversity of the wines is remarkable.  But just as importantly for me is that remarkable growers,  and vintners of Lodi – many who I’ve come to know on a personal basis.

If it seems like Lodi is the most “together” wine region in the U.S. – nearly all growers and wine producers working in synch to put out the word about Lodi wines and grapes – that’s because it is – Randy Caparoso

You simply won’t find a better folks.  And I’m please to be sharing some of the remarkable stories behind the wines and vines!

My latest blog for Visit Lodi is entitled: Lodi’s Legendary Ancient Vine Bechthold Vineyard:

WITH A WINE-GRAPE GROWING HISTORY THAT DATES BACK MORE THAN 100 YEARS, LODI HAS A RICHLY DESERVED REPUTATION FOR OLD VINE VINEYARDS.

But there is one ancient vine vineyard – Bechthold Vineyard that stands apart from the rest. That’s because the twenty-five acre own-rooted Bechthold vineyard, planted in 1886 by German immigrant Joseph Spenker, is the oldest continuously farmed vineyard in Lodi.  Click here to read the entire article.

I hope you enjoy…Cheers!
