Viñedos Aurora, one of Lodi's newest brands, is also one of Lodi's hottest. First, and most importantly, the quality of Viñedos Aurora wines is impeccable: a purplish power-packed yet finely chiseled Petite Sirah; a dreamily balanced and multi-scented Cabernet Sauvignon/Tempranillo/Merlot blend called Síntesis; and a light, minerally, whippersnapper of a dry white made from the Albariño grape.

Viñedos Aurora is also a great American story that starts with the grandfather of winemaker Gerardo Espinosa: Victor Anaya Rocha, who first came to the Stockton area from Michoacán, Mexico to work the fields in 1944. For many years, Anaya Sr. traveled back and forth, raising four sons — Victor Jr., Ramon, Armando and Gerardo Anaya — all of whom earned degrees in agricultural engineering at the University of Michoacán.
