Mokelumne Glen Vineyards opens tasting room


Back in February, we brought you the story of Mokelumne Glen Vineyards, a Lodi winery that specializes in German varietals. You won't find the usual zinfandel and sauvignon blanc here. This producer specializes in kerner (an off-dry white similar to reisling), lemberger (a medium-bodied red known as blaufrankish in Austria), the petite sirah-like dornfelder and other German wines that are fairly rare domestically.

Sounds interesting, right? Well, the problem was that Mokelumne Glen Vineyards didn't have a tasting room and limited retail availability. That's all changed with the opening of a tasting room in Lodi (139 S. Guild, Lodi). Hours are Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., and also by appointment. Some construction still needs to be completed, but they're still pouring away. Drop by for a taste of something different next time you're in Lodi.
