OAK RIDGE WINERY
This is a story of family, farming, and winemaking. Angelo Maggio arrived in Lodi in 1906, immigrating from the Italian coast of Genova with his wife, Louisa. The first cuttings were planted in 1928 on the property of their first ranch home, which laid the foundation for the long, winding journey that culminates in Oak Ridge Winery. Three great-granddaughters, each wine growers in their own right, now oversee the operations at Oak Ridge Winery, with a focus on hospitality, brand building, and expansion. Theirs is a family effort producing quality red and white wines, including red blends, zinfandel, petit syrah, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, pinot grigio, and sauvignon blanc.
The Maggio Family has called Lodi home for over 100 years; roots that instill a sense of stewardship of the land, with a strong desire to leave it better for future generations. They farm all of their 2,500 acres of vineyards in accordance with Lodi Rules. It signifies a commitment to rigorous, scientifically sound sustainable winegrowing.

A reputation for excellence in both grape growing and winemaking has been the Papagni Wines family tradition for over 100 years, reaching back to Bari, Italy. The Papagni family’s winemaking passion and drive to innovate culminated in the creation of a state of the art winery in Madera in 1973. The winery achieved many industry firsts – including the first winery to use stainless steel tanks and the first San Joaquin Valley winery to craft top-rate varietal wines made from specific grape types rather than blends. The first vintages won immediate international recognition among wine enthusiasts, both in the United States and Europe.
Papagni became renown for wines crafted from Alicante Bouschet, a deep, dark wine with spice , rich fruit, and gentle earthiness. In recent years, they have been focused on producing small lot, hand grafted award-winning red and white wines.
