WINE OF THE MONTH CLUB SELECTION
We love stories like this. Oak Ridge
Winery, the oldest winery in Lodi, having
been founded in 1934, makes 3 Girls.
Three families purchased the winery in
2002. The guiding force is Rudy Maggio,
whose family came here from Genoa,
Italy, in 1925. They settled in Lodi, where
they planted their first vineyard.
Through hard work and dedication, the
family succeeded to the point where
they now own 500 acres of estate-grown
grapes. But they still adhere to the family
tradition of quality and a fair price.
The name comes from having
three daughters along with seven
grandchildren. All are part of the winery
operation, overseeing different tasks
from farming to picking, crushing, aging,
bottling and marketing. As a result, Oak
Ridge thrives today thanks to the family
atmosphere and long history.
Oak Ridge also contracts with other
vineyards to manage them. To date, they
manage the most Zinfandel vineyards in
Lodi, a staggering 700 acres.
Of course Lodi is known for Zinfandel,
as it should be, but the Chardonnays
we’ve encountered from here have been
stunning.
Here is a forward, fruit-driven wine that
screams red and green apple, touches of
pineapple and guava. The purity of fruit
is ingratiating. From beginning to end,
this gem delivers at all levels, from the
scented nose to the great finish.
