You'd think crush alone would be enough to keep most wineries busy, but over the last 11 weeks, 3 new tasting rooms have opened in and around Lodi. I'll cover each in more detail in the future, but these are worth exploring now for holiday gift-giving.

Sisters Kim and Melissa Scott and family opened Sorelle Winery on the historic Dodge Family Estate, which dates back to 1866. The Italian-varietal focused tasting room is located southeast of Lodi at 9599 N Hwy 88 and open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. SorelleWinery.com

Longtime Lodi label designer/marketing whiz, Jeremy Trettevik and his wife Choral beautifully remodeled part of their downtown office space on 6 West Pine Street to create Jeremy Wine Company. Open 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. JeremyWineCo.com

North of Peltier Road at 23627 North DeVries Road, Dan and Dayna Panella have opened Oak Farm Vineyards at the 1864 former home of William DeVries. The tasting room is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. (The Panella's also own downtown Lodi's Vine & Branches Christian Bookstore.) OakFarmVineyards.com

In addition, I know of at least 4 more tasting rooms that should open in the next 6 months, pushing the total to over 50, and most of those opened within the last decade!
