"The Van Ruiten Family Winery is located in Lodi, California, mid-way between the Sierra Foothills and the San Francisco Bay. The estate vineyards, including the infamous Lodi Zinfandel, benefit from the ideal climate influenced by the cool afternoon breezes of the San Joaquin Delta."

K&S Comments:

“A family winery that is rebranding itself. From 65K winery to only 16K means your concept is changing drastically. Warm and  friendly tasting room, all guests are made to  feel welcome. My first visit did not feel that way.🙁 Music on the patio is a fun event. I didn’t get to try the Reserve menu on this  visit but its the plan next time.


K&S Notes:

• Easy to find and close to I-5.
• Very pet and child friendly.
• Ask for a social media pic with the “bid doors.”
• They have sparkling!
• Yearly “Christmas in July” sale is big!
