Sacramento Limousine Lodi Wine Country
Lodi Wine Country, located 30 minutes from Sacramento, is a region quickly emerging as one of California’s most exciting wine destinations. The appellation includes land in southern Sacramento County and northern San Joaquin County. Situated 100 miles directly east of the San Francisco Bay, cool “delta breezes” provide the region with a reliable, natural air conditioning throughout the growing season. The Mokelumne River drains out of the Sierra Nevada Mountains into the San Joaquin River, meandering through the northern portion of Lodi, with connecting creeks, sloughs, and canals. This perfect climate allows Lodi winegrowers to consistently craft a diverse set of delicious full-flavored varietal wines that display a refreshing natural acidity.
