Overview

Steve Borra started Lodi’s first tiny bonded boutique winery behind a backyard shack in 1975 on Armstrong Road. They’ll tell you they make their wines in the vineyard, with prime vine rows ingeniously planted in alignment with the afternoon sun for optimal ripening. In the winery, winemaker Markus Niggli uses natural yeast from the vines, along with complete bypassing of the press altogether to make the smoothest, most complex wines. Stop on by!

This is a small winery located just out of town. If you have a chance, you should definitely go here because the wines are fabulous and a great value. Don't miss Borra if you are here to buy wine!

Stopped here last weekend. We were not sure if tasting room was even open as there were no cars in sight. Small, intimate tasting room. The Swiss winemaker works with a variety of white grapes and has some cool blends featuring grapes such as Riesling,...More

Markus, the Swiss winemaker, is absolutely FANTASTIC! He was trained to be a winemaker in South Africa and also spent a lot of time training in Western Australia. He is so knowledgeable and takes lots of time with customers explaining details of interest. Plus he...More

Not a big fan of wine, but this vineyard has a great deal on tasting and good wine. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Had a good time and hope more people visit this place.

Borra Vineyards reminds me of what I love about the Lodi region: the tasting room has a friendly atmosphere with no pretension, the winery is a family-run tradition, and the wines are good. However, Borra takes the best qualities of the Lodi wine experience one...More
