Description
Lodi is a major wine-producing center, with more than 80 wineries located within a short distance. The sea of vineyards is responsible for the city's self-proclaimed nickname “Zinfandel Capital of the World.” The Lodi appellation, comparable to France's Chateauneuf du Pape, is noted for old vine Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc. The Lodi Wine & Visitor Center, 2545 W. Turner Rd., showcases the grape, and the grounds include an educational demonstration vineyard. Phone (209) 365-0621.
Nearby Lodi Lake Park offers water skiing, boating, swimming and hiking. Hill House Museum, 826 S. Church St., occupies one of the city's few remaining Victorian houses. The museum is open Sunday and by appointment; phone (209) 369-6073.
Autumn provides an opportunity to witness the yearly arrival of thousands of sandhill cranes as they complete a migratory journey south from Alaska along the Pacific Flyway. The birds spend the winter months at the Isenberg Sandhill Crane Reserve; they can be observed from lookout points along Woodbridge Road, which runs through the reserve's south site. Guided tours are given several times a month from October through February; for schedule information phone (209) 234-3435.
