Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Description

Cesare Mondavi settled in Lodi during the Prohibition era to grow grapes and ship them to Italian families on the East Coast. Robert Mondavi grew up in Lodi and went back years later after establishing his famous Napa Valley winery to make quality wine at an affordable price. In 1979 he purchased the Cherokee Wine Association, a former wine cooperative established just after the repeal of Prohibition, and renamed it after the town of Woodbridge. Today the huge facility produces millions of cases of “quality wines for everyday enjoyment.” These are consumer-friendly wines from a pioneering wine family.

Visiting the facility can be a treat in many ways. Regular tours are available, as well as VIP tasting programs. The white stucco tasting center is right on Woodbridge Road in front of the winery facilities. Inside is a very nice gift shop with assortments of gourmet food items including a fully stocked deli case, pottery, logo clothing, stemware, old family photographs and wine maps on the wall. The hardwood floor and tile-topped tasting counter make for a cozy wine-tasting experience.

The friendly staff greets visitors and is able to pour “Winemaker’s Selection” limited-release wines that are available only in the tasting room and to wine club members. This is an opportunity to taste Syrah, Rosato, Muscat Bianco, Alicante Bouchet, Petite Sirah, Barbera, Viognier and Muscat, as well as a number of vintage Port wines. There is also a Select Vineyard Series of Old-Vine Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Merlot. Outside under a pergola are picnic tables shaded by giant elm trees.

We almost did not go because this is a national brand and we generally prefer the smaller family owned wineries - But what a surprise! The wines at the winery were terrific. We have a really great zinfandel. Very nice tasting room. Terrific hostess. We will definitely go back next year.

I got caught in Lodi longer than expected and was lucky enough to come across the Woodbridge Winery. It was a simple business setting, not a scenic setting but comfortable. I was able to taste several of there choice wines and enjoyed the Petite Sirah the most. I left that afternoon with a bottle to enjoy in the hotel room, this truly made a small business venture into something more enjoyable.
