a guide to lodi's wine country

If you're familiar with the Northern California cities, you've likely heard of Lodi, California and associate it with a 'farm town' where there's nothing to do. While you're half way right, because there's not much to do, there is actually a great collection of amazing wineries in the area.

Last weekend, I headed to Lodi to celebrate my friend Jessica's bachelorette and do some wine tasting, and it was fun to explore a wine country thats something different than Napa or Sonoma, where we always go. We stayed in one of the coolest houses I've stayed in. It was basically a resort - located on a vineyard surrounded by rows and rows of vines as well as equipped with a bocce court, pool, hot tub, tennis court, guest house, etc, and the decor inside was so perfect. Lodi's Wine Trail also will help you avoid the high tasting and lodging fees at the tourist inflated wineries in Napa and Sonoma.
