A Lodi tourism group announced what individuals and businesses they will honor for bringing attention and visitors to the community. Van Ruiten Winery will be named "Winery of the Year" and citizens John Tudor and Carol Padden will be formally honored by Visit Lodi! Conference & Visitors Bureau for their contribution to Lodi's tourism at an awards presentation in early May.
The awards luncheon is an annual presentation hosted by Visit Lodi! In its fifth year, the event enables the group to offer gratitude to those who work to make Lodi a vacation destination for people across the state and beyond.
