Sneak away to the Old Sugar Mill

Just 40 minutes outside of Lodi, between the Sacramento River and sprawling vineyards, there is a little-known ‘daycation,’ where visitors have discovered eight wineries within a partially renovated sugar mill. It’s historic, elegant and totally unique.

The red bricks of the Old Sugar Mill glow between the curving river and seemingly endless vineyards on a recent rainy afternoon. The golden sunlight peaking through dark clouds hits the stories of window panes that wink to passersby. From the road, the historic mill seems lonely between fields of dry brush, a few blackberry bushes and acres of vineyards. There is an eeriness in seeing the old building, with its broken windows and scraps of concrete on the ground.

But it’s welcoming, too. As you drive down the road, you see it’s been renovated. And the mill — huge and industrious — is quite beautiful.
