Oak Ridge Winery – the Oldest Operating Winery in Lodi, CA
Oak Ridge Winery – a combination of the right soil, right climate, and right people.
“For five generations, my family has been growing grapes and making wine in the area of Lodi, California. We make wines that we like to drink, whether it’s for a big family gathering or a quiet night at home, and we’re delighted to be able to share them with you.” –Rudy Maggio
Built in 1934, Oak Ridge Winery is the oldest operating winery in the Lodi area of California. The winery is owned by the Maggio & Reynolds families with a focus on producing estate wines under several separate wine labels. The Oak Ridge Winery was once a winemaking cooperative that the Maggio and Reynolds families bought in 2002. They renamed it and started modernizing the facilities which gave birth to a state-of-the-art winery.
Located between the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay, all their wines are made from 7,500 acres of estate vineyards throughout the Lodi American Viticultural Area (AVA). This area has a unique Mediterranean climate, with warm days and coastal evening breezes which is ideal for the cultivation of world-class wine grape. California’s top varietals come from this place, with Zinfandel being a single phenomenon. There are a few vines over 100 years old that produce an intensely flavored fruit to create wines with the ultimate expression of the terroir.
The oak ridge winery is more than just bricks, mortar, tanks, and barrels. Over the years, the winery has successfully developed a team of passionate and committed industry professionals who create wonderful wines with their vast knowledge and experience.
Today, the Oak Ridge Winery also produces several other brands including OZV, Old Soul, 3 Girls, Maggio, Moss Roxx, and Lodi Estate.
