New Winery and Tasting Room for Lodi Area, Spanish Wine Champs Bokisch Vineyards

Mark and Liz Bokisch celebrate their new winery (after 13 years of renting space)
Bokisch Winery has some big news - they're moving into their own winery - a first. In addition to lots of space, it will also feature a new tasting room. Read the details here.

Bokisch specializes in Spanish varietals, making organically grown Albarino, Garnacha (what the French call Grenache) and Graciano (in addition to nonorganically grown wines).

Winemaker Mark Bokisch is half Spanish and spent summers in Spain as a child. In the U.S. he worked briefly at Joseph Phelps before discovering the price of vineyards in the Lodi region. The Bokisch's began planting Spanish varietals in the region, which had led to a blossoming of Albarino and Grenache in the area.

Bokisch now oversees 2,500 acres of vineyards in Lodi, including 84 of its own organic estate vines.
