Albarino- not just a summertime sipper

Generally referred to as our go-to warm weather wine (I mean, what’s better than a chilled glass of Albarino while basking poolside? Think scintillating flavors of bright lime, lemon curd and peach blossoms), our Albarino is making a case as an enjoyable wintertime wine as well! In the midst of winter (welcome, we’ve missed you!), we don’t typically grab for the Albarino…however, recently we revisited our current 2014 vintage and noticed that it has evolved beautifully! With some time in the bottle (bottled in March of 2015, released in May of 2015), this wine has softened up with a rounder mouth feel and finish, while maintaining great acidity. All we can ...

With some time in the bottle (bottled in March of 2015, released in May of 2015), this wine has softened up with a rounder mouth feel and finish, while maintaining great acidity. All we can think about is seafood!

Enter Crab Feed season…this Albarino has the acidity needed to pair beautifully with the sweetness fresh crab offers and as a bonus it’s able to cut through the richness of the undeniable melted butter served up alongside the crab. The minerality that Albarino is oftentimes known for matches nicely with the briny notes in crab.

If you happen to be supporting one of the many Crab Feeds happening this time of year, might we suggest you grab a bottle or two of 2014 Harney Lane Albarino to share at your table and see what everyone thinks! Courtney & Kris had great reviews from their friends!

We got our STOMP on!

We STOMPed out Cancer last Sunday, October 4th. For the 5th year in a row, our family, staff and The Greyhounds Relay for Life Team worked tirelessly to put together a great day of fundraising, wine, food and grape stomping goodness for all to enjoy! Approximately 100 people jumped into the barrels and STOMPed throughout the day. Our friends Snap Jackson and the Knock on Wood Players kept the energy up with their bluegrassy feel-good tunes. KCRA 3’s Tamara Berg joined us to emcee the event and even climbed into a barrel. Our raffle, the biggest yet, was full of amazing gifts donated by our friends, business partners and generous community members! ... Read More...

Our raffle, the biggest yet, was full of amazing gifts donated by our friends, business partners and generous community members! There were massages, oil changes, jewelry, gift certificates to top restaurants, wine gift baskets, golf lessons, and so much more. The Silent Auction was also pretty remarkable. A spa gift package to the beautiful Wine & Roses Hotel.Restaurant.Spa as well as a case of our very first vintage 2006 Petite Sirah were the hits!

For the second year in a row, we are happy to announce that the event generated over $12,000 for the American Cancer Society.

Thank you to our very generous event sponsors and supporters alike! Please pass along the support and visit these businesses.

NEWSponsor Thanks Sign _ 2015

There is still time to be a part of this great cause…through the end of October, we are accepting donations that will go directly to the charity. The commemorative STOMP out Cancer wine glasses are also available for a $10 donation. Please consider this important cause!

5 Year Tasting Room Anniversary

August marks the 5 year anniversary of our tasting room opening as well as the start of our 9th vintage of wine. It often seems like we just opened our doors yesterday until I take a minute to reflect. Then all kinds of wonderful memories come to mind and I realize just how long it has been. I am reminded of the months of pouring wine on the weekends in the warehouse. (I am sure many of you remember this too.) And I think back to our “Sneak Peek” Grand Opening for our wine club members where everyone signed the 6L of Lizzy James that we enjoyed at the following Crush Pad Jam. And then I think ...

August marks the 5 year anniversary of our tasting room opening as well as the start of our 9th vintage of wine. It often seems like we just opened our doors yesterday until I take a minute to reflect. Then all kinds of wonderful memories come to mind and I realize just how long it has been. I am reminded of the months of pouring wine on the weekends in the warehouse. (I am sure many of you remember this too.) And I think back to our “Sneak Peek” Grand Opening for our wine club members where everyone signed the 6L of Lizzy James that we enjoyed at the following Crush Pad Jam. And then I think about how young our kids were when we started this project and it becomes apparent that it wasn’t just yesterday! How they have grown and how the winery has grown as well.

We have been so blessed over these years. Our business has grown and we have been able to continue growing our wine production. While we opened our doors with under 800 cases of wine, we just recently bottled over 4000. Our tasting room traffic has steadily grown and we have needed to add additional staff. We have been blessed to find such great people to join the team! We have received great awards and accolades over the years too. In fact, we just received a Double Gold, Best of Class of Region for both the 2013 Albariño and the 2011 Old Vine Zinfandel, Lizzy James at the 2014 California State Fair! And, in July San Joaquin Magazine readers voted us Best Tasting Room! Humbling honors!!

However, the biggest blessing of all continues to be our loyal customers and Wine:Thirty Club Members! You are our biggest advocates and best marketers! But you have also become part of our lives in a way we didn’t expect. We have shared both joys and sorrows with you. We have shared the sorrows of illness and death and celebrated the joys of new marriages, new babies, new jobs and so much more. We have welcomed you becoming part of our family and you have graciously accepted us becoming part of yours as well. Thank you for being part of this journey we are on! Cheers to you and to the 2014 vintage! We look forward to sharing it with you!!

Our Summertime Essentials

The kids are out of school and summer is officially here in Lodi! To get you prepared for the pool parties, al fresco dinners on the patio and all of the traditional summer to-dos your calendar is packed with, we’ve put together a list of our “Harney Lane Summertime Essentials.” At the top of the list -our two ‘poolside’ wines- the newly released 2012 Albarino and 2012 Dry Rose. Both wines are best served chilled… perfect for the warm summer days heading our way! To keep your wines chilled, we recommend the Corkcicle.

The kids are out of school and summer is officially here in Lodi! To get you prepared for the pool parties, al fresco dinners on the patio and all of the traditional summer to-dos your calendar is packed with, we’ve put together a list of our “Harney Lane Summertime Essentials.”

At the top of the list -our two ‘poolside’ wines- the newly released 2012 Albarino and 2012 Dry Rose. Both wines are best served chilled… perfect for the warm summer days heading our way!

To keep your wines chilled, we recommend the Corkcicle. We brought this nifty little invention into the tasting room last summer and had a hard time keeping them in stock. They’re awesome. It’s your bottle’s own little ice pack that conveniently fits right inside the bottle!

Chances are, you’ll be outside enjoying your own personal Wine:30, so you’ll need a good, go-to, shatterproof vessel. Enter the govino ‘go anywhere’ glass! These things are fantastic! They appear to be a nice little stemless glass, however they are made of a food-safe, BPA free, polymer, which reflects the wines qualities much like crystal, believe it or not!

We are also recommending our little Harney Lane cheese boards. Perfect for a poolside nosh or to stow in your picnic basket. At $9.95 each, they’re a steal.

Stop in Thursday – Monday 12-5pm for a cool down in the cool tasting room or in the shade of our hundred plus year old Deodora Pine forest.
