Four Lodi wines took home best of state and region awards this year at the California State Fair. Lodi’s Macchia Winery earned best Zinfandel in the state with a double gold 98 ranking on their 2011 Adventurous zin, made with grapes from Linsteadt Vineyard in Amador County.
“It’s all good. Lodi really shines with the grapes that we get here. At one tine, we were one of the first putting Lodi on the label. Now we are at a time when people are proud to put Lodi on the bottle,” said Lani Holdender, wife of Macchia Winery owner Tim Holdener.
