About This Winery
Jessie’s Grove Winery enjoys a Mediterranean climate with warm days, cool nights, and a soft bay delta breeze. Jessie’s Grove Winery’s history is significant not only to the Lodi area, but to California’s heritage as well.
Jessie’s father, Joseph, came to the Lodi area in the 1860’s in search of land “where the oak trees grew the tallest.” He settled in the heart of the Lodi appellation on a 320 acre ranch. Jessie, a natural environmentalist of the 1800’s, inherited her father’s respect for nature and his love for the priceless oak trees on the family’s ranch. She set aside a 32-acre oak-covered parcel and rejected all opportunities to develop the grove. The oak grove, ranch, and winery have been named in honor of Jessie.
Except for the addition of modern stainless steel tanks, the winery authentically preserves the feel of the ranch in the 1800’s. The tasting room is housed inside a rustic yet clean and comfortable barn with concrete floors accented with oriental rugs. The walls bear old photographs from the old days of the ranch.
The vines flourish in the rich soil, and some of the original Zinfandel vines planted by Jessie in the 1890’s are still harvested for wine. Additionally they produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay, Carignane and a number of blends including the racy Earth Zin & Fire offering.
The winery and ranch continue to be a family operation, from the caring of the ancient vineyards to hosting of the annual Groovin’ in the Grove summer
Rhythm and Blues concert series.
There is a small self guided museum on the property with tours available on Sundays.
