This June, a bunch of Lodi’s best wineries will be hosting a day-long symposium to help the public understand the importance of supporting local agriculture. The event, called “Drink Pink”, is the brainchild of Wine Country Wine & Food Spokesperson and Lodi-based winemaker, Charley Romano.
Lodi, the hometown of white wines, is known the world over for its fine white wines and reds. The numerous wineries in the area have seen their sales grow exponentially over the last decade and now they are regularly producing some of the finest wines in California. On June 9-12, 2013, Lodi is hosting the Lodi Producers Wine Festival, which will put its thriving wine industry on display in a weekend of tasting, dining and fun.
A passport-style event aiming at showcasing the variety of winegrowing regions and drawing new audiences.
25 MAY 2021, LODI, CALIFORNIA – Celebrate Lodi Rosé, a new passport-style event showcasing this fascinating and varied wine category, will start off the summer season on June 12 and 13. Rosé wines handmade from unique, Lodi-grown varietals including Cinsaut, Barbera, Charbono, and others, as well as white, sparkling, and red wines, will be available in flights from 19 wineries.
Because it is a reservation-only event, the atmosphere will be intimate and relaxing. Guests may build a two-day itinerary by pre-booking up to five 45-minute tasting appointments between 11:00 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. each day, for a total of 10 bookings throughout the weekend, at the time of ticket purchase. Traveling to and from places, as well as enough time to buy your favorite wines, will be possible with thirty-minute intervals between reservation times.
“Rosé wines are a fun and fascinating wine category to explore. According to Stuart Spencer, Executive Director of the Lodi Winegrape Commission, “they may vary significantly stylistically depending on the kind of grape variety or types utilized and the winemaking method.” “With over 100 winegrape types growing in Lodi, we’re seeing increased innovation from local winemakers in this category. This event is an invitation to new and returning wine lovers to come out and explore, learn, and enjoy themselves.”
