Mettler Family Vineyards

7889 East Harney Lane

Open: Year-round

Our family has been growing grapes for eight generations, dating back to the small German (now French) village of Alsace. We have been growing premium wine grapes in the Lodi appellation for six generations and, in addition to our own wines, continue to grow grapes for many well-known wineries. We were one of the very first farming families to introduce French clones to our region, and have experience growing many varieties of grapes. We now farm over 800 acres in the Lodi Appellation, some of which date back to our family's original properties which are over 100 years old.

Our wines are selected from very small blocks of vineyards, which are trained on special trellis systems, one which was originally designed by Jason, our vineyard manager, and Larry Mettler. These systems allow just the right amount of sunlight to grace the fruit on the vine. Our crop level is controlled using minimum use of water and hand-thinning. Our wines are an expression of where and how the grapes are grown, including the clonal choice, vineyard sites, trellis, crop management and expertise of the winemaker. We personally manage the entire process, paying close attention to every detail.

Such a beautiful tasting room and surroundings. Mettler has delicious reds, blends, as well as whites! You have to taste the Copacetic, the GSM, and the Muscat!!!

Well crafted and interesting wines. Several took on smoky and spicy qualities that seemed pretty unique. Not my style exactly, but maybe yours?
