Steve Borra started Lodi’s first tiny bonded boutique winery behind a backyard shack in 1975 on Armstrong Road. They’ll tell you they make their wines in the vineyard, with prime vine rows ingeniously planted in alignment with the afternoon sun for optimal ripening. In the winery, winemaker Markus Niggli uses natural yeast from the vines, along with complete bypassing of the press altogether to make the smoothest, most complex wines. Stop on by!

This is a small winery located just out of town. If you have a chance, you should definitely go here because the wines are fabulous and a great value. Don't miss Borra if you are here to buy wine!

Not a big fan of wine, but this vineyard has a great deal on tasting and good wine. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Had a good time and hope more people visit this place.
