    Just what the area needs, another half a dozen winerys. Just like, OH no, not another Mexican restaurant.

    Nice article Jordan. You should really look into the LangeTwins Winery here in town if you are interested in cutting edge green technology. They are certified sustainable, certified Lodi rules, their winery and vineyards are covered (literally) in solar panels. This is a family dedicated to protecting the environment and giving back to the community of Lodi and definitely deserve mention alongside the other great local wineries listed above. And no I'm not a member of the family, just a big fan of their wines and values. Thanks!
