Downtown Lodi has its fair share of wine-tasting rooms. There are even more out along the country roads. But Gerardo Espinosa wants to try something new: Opening a winery on Lodi’s Eastside.
The modest storefront at 606 Central Ave. has a colorful brickwork design and cool mint green doors. It’s next door to the now-closed Mar Y Tierra restaurant, and across the street from Dos Hermanos market. Both buildings, and others on the street, are owned by Espinosa’s family.
