Ollie's Pub and Fields Family Wines share more than a wall inside a brick building on North School Street. Operators of the establishments have pooled their resources and are working to realize their vision of creating an environment that appeals to a wide demographic of beer and wine drinkers.

They collaborated and transformed the facade of the building in recent weeks, and the pub also offers Fields' wine to its customers. When Russ Fields, owner of the Woodbridge Winery that shares his family's name, was looking at locations for a Downtown tasting room, he found the perfect place in longtime friend and Ollie's Pub owner Sean Guthrie's building. The two attended college together at University of California Santa Barbara.

    Its great to see Lodi's downtown becoming more of a destination for wine tasters, one of the main ways our city makes money. If you don't like the people enoying the beautiful CA summer weather, drinking wine outside, then walk a different way. You're in Lodi, a major wine country, what do you expect? And who knew fixing up a dive bar, aka. a cave that reeked of urine would be a negative thing? Im sure there are many more repulsive smelling dive bars elsewhere that you can enjoy.

    Just two more alcohol related venues on the public sidewalks of downtown Lodi. When taking my 5 year-old granddaughter to the Lodi Cinema, she asked my why those wine "tasters" at the outside patio tasting room were acting so funny and screaming at one another. Just another good old boys revenue maker for those who are well-connected? How about our neighborhood bar on California and Lockeford? Will they be granted a permit for the same outside patio privilege in the near future? Oh, I forgot, they aren't well-connected at city hall and don't much care about joining the good ol' boys club just to have the pleasure of having an outside seating area.

    Make sure you read this same article on the Stockton Record. Ollie's owners want to go upscale and get rid of the young 20's crowd to "a more sophisticated crowd."

    There goes the last, safe, dive bar in town.
