I want to give a huge shout out to Gary! He was so funny and really made our tasting experience wonderful! He gave us a lot of information about the wines and let us “revisit” several of our favorites. Not to mention the wines were...More

One of my favorite things to do when I'm in Lodi is to spend Sunday afternoon on the patio at Van Ruiten listening to live music and sipping their wines. I lean toward their sparkling wines on a warm afternoon. The tasting room is staffed...More

The nicest people run this winery-our group visited in June and got 5 star treatment-including a tour and look at bottling-pretty cool! Their sparkling Rose was a hit with guests-not too sweet. And they have the cutest winery dog! A must try in Lodi!
