It’s Grape Harvest Season in Lodi

Zinfandel is the most popular variety of wine produced here, but a diverse portfolio of over 100 different varieties draw visitors to the area regularly. With grape harvest season coming up fast, Lodi wineries are preparing to make new flavors and varieties of wine for locals and visitors alike to enjoy.
Grape harvest season serves as a herald for a highly anticipated annual event here in Lodi – the Lodi Grape Festival.

Admission is $10 for adults, $6 for kids age 6-12, and free for children 5 and under.
In addition to the Grape Festival, visitors can enjoy 85+ different wineries in the region on their own terms. There’s even a map for the Lodi Wine Trail for you to follow!
