Discover Lodi wine country

Discover Lodi wine country

Wine lovers don’t need to venture far to acquire a variety of fine wines. The Lodi Wine Country is right in our back yard, and has more than 80 wineries and 750 grape growers.

Although Lodi is mostly known for its Old Vine Zinfandel and regular Zinfandel wines, its wine country is also the state's leading producer of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvgnon Blanc and Viognier. But it doesn't stop there. Lodi grape growers grow more than 60 different varieties, everything from Albarino to Torrontes and Gewürztraminer.

“Lodi is a friendly and relaxed wine region with a deep heritage in growing winegrapes for amazing world class wines,” said Camron King, executive director of the Lodi Winegrape Commission. “The Lodi experience is one based in community and passion for the product produced here. Growers, winery owners and the community are all intertwined and this makes for a great Lodi experience for anyone visiting the region.”

Sacramento County display at the California State Fair

Sacramento County display at the California State Fair

Have you had a chance to check out the Sacramento display at the California State Fair in Cal Expo? The display does a great job highlighting many of the cool landmarks in the county, and has a lot of great information on the area.

If you plan to make it out to the fair, check out Exhibit Building A on the bottom floor to see all of the county displays. You can tell everyone involved put a lot of effort into representing the charm of each individual county.

I am glad I had a chance to see it on the fair's opening day. It's also right by the News 10 booth where you can sign up for a trip to Disneyland and get a free photo with our green screen. It's also a nice way to get out of the heat and still enjoy all the fair has to offer!
