About This Winery
Oak Ridge Winery is a large-production facility that has a small down-home feel. The winery has operated continuously since the end of Prohibition. It is a mainstay on the east side of Lodi, serving visitors “right out of the barrel”. In 2002 it was purchased by two grape-growing families, both of which had been in the winemaking business for several generations.
Oak Ridge makes a wide range of wines under a large number of different labels.
This is a great winery for enjoying a variety of wines. You can have a one-of-a-kind experience tasting wine while standing inside a giant redwood wine barrel. The 49,000-gallon-barrel is home to the oldest tasting room in Lodi. As you stand inside the circular cask, it is hard to imagine how much wine could be stored here. Consider that there is an ample-size tasting counter, a stocked deli case, gift items spread around, and still plenty of room for a couple of dozen visitors. The tasting staff is attentive, and the mood is casual and fun.
Adjacent to the “Barrel Room” is a separate gift cottage with country store items, home decorations and nice gift items. The facility itself is a bit drab, with its utilitarian chain link fence and brick buildings, but the “barrel” easily makes up for it.
Prices range from $5 to $15 per bottle for their wines. You are sure to find some powerful Zinfandels in the Oak Ridge portfolio. The 500 acres of vineyards are ideally situated for this wonderful California red wine.↑ Less
