The Lodi area, with a growing number of wineries, will see the expansion of a growing business — this one on Peltier Road between Highway 99 and Lower Sacramento Road.

M-2 Winery plans to move its winery from its current location on East Turner Road near Cluff Avenue. Its owners say they have outgrown the current winery, which they’ve operated for the past seven years.

Although some of the 15 acres on Peltier Road have been graded, builders, designers and M-2 partners gathered on Tuesday for a groundbreaking.

Metal buildings will be erected beginning July 16, with winemaking scheduled to begin in September, said M-2 partner Ted Woodruff. A tasting room will be added near the beginning of 2014, he said. And next year, a vineyard will be planted.

M-2 produces about 3,000 cases of wine per year now, but once they move to Peltier Road, production will jump to nearly 10,000 cases, Woodruff said.

“I think it’s going to be beneficial,” said Leo Lewis, 82, who lives across the road from the winery site. “It’s going to improve the area.
