As you may know if you follow this blog, I’ve been contributing to Visit Lodi! Conference & Visitors Bureau blog. Visit Lodi is the official travel website for Lodi, California. From time to time I share blog posts I’ve written for Visit Lodi here. I recently wrote a piece for Visit Lodi that features 10 Lodi white wines perfect for your summer sipping.

Do you know that Lodi leads all California wine regions for tonnage crushed of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Verdelho and is second for Pinot Gris?
Lodi, which was named the Wine Enthusiast 2015 Wine Region of the Year, is predominately a red wine growing region. But an abundant and diverse selection of white wine grape varieties is also grown in the region.
Aside from the more well-known white wine grape varieties such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, the region’s diverse terroir and viticultural practices support the growth of high-quality Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, and Southern Rhone varieties.
There is even a winery, Acquiesce Winery & Vineyards, that is focused exclusively on crafting white wines (and a rose)
Writing for Visit Lodi feels personal for me. Lodi is a wine 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.
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 pleased to be sharing some of the remarkable stories behind the wines and vines!
And speaking of wines and vines, though my contributions are focused on wine, there are many other things to do in Lodi, including arts & culture, outdoor recreation, golfing, biking, etc.
