Wine Tasting at LangeTwins

The other day, as I was sipping on my glass of wine, it dawned on me "Wait! Jac....start a wine series!" It was a magical moment. I mean, I love wine,  going wine tasting, and there are so many delicious / amazing places to check out in the surrounding Sacramento area. 

To start off, first visited LangeTwins Family Winery and Vineyard in Lodi, CA. Family owned and 5th generation winegrowers.
We got a private tour of the winery by the sweetest tour guide; Kendra (daughter of one of the Lange Twins). She laid some serious knowledge on us. 
Some interesting facts:
1- LangeTwins name came from twin brothers Brad and Randall Lange
2- Great-Great Grandparents migrated to Lodi from Germany an leased land to farm watermelons. In the 1930's the family purchased land that was planted to grapevines and learned to farm grapes versus pulling.
3-All throughout the winery and vineyard there are photovoltaic solar systems installed for renewable energy
4- LangeTwins harvests 27 different varietals. Zinfandel being one of them. But for their Centennial Zin, they work with a family friend to craft the 114 year old Zinfandel. My favorite 2011 Centennial Zinfandel
5- Winery has only been opened since 2006!
6- They bottle four different brands, including; LangeTwins, Caricature, Ivory and Burt, and Sand Point

Hope you enjoy!

We entered the barrel room. Where we had our private tasting. My top three favorites: 2016 Sangiovese Rosé, 2012 Midnight Reserve, and 2011 Centennial Zinfandel.

Thank you LangeTwins for your collaboration.
