Mettler

Lodi wine district is huge in style. So are the wines.  The Lodi appellation is noted for its classic Mediterranean climate and distinctive sandy soils that provide the perfect environment for the production of world-class wines.

The Mettler Family has roots in the wine industry dating back to the 1770s, and they have been growing wine grapes in the Lodi appellation since the late 1800s.

Family pride and old world values have remained with the family through six generations of grape growing in the Lodi area.

They work to ensure that every detail reflects their commitment to producing wines of the highest quality.

The Mettlers were one of the first farming families to introduce French clones to the region.  They now farm over 800 acres in the Lodi Appellation, some dating back over 100 years.

The wines are selected from very small blocks of vineyards, which are trained on special trellis systems, and are an expression of where and how the grapes are grown.

The Mettler vineyards are certified sustainable through the “Lodi Rules” certification process. Also in 2010 the vineyards became certified organic through the CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers).

“As farmers—and as a family—we hold a fundamental belief in giving back to the land, to maintain its bounty and nourish the soil to last for many generations to come.”
