What we love
Swiss-born winemaker and owner Markus Niggli is producing some of the Lodi’s most serious white wines. This 2016 Dry Gewürztraminer is wildly aromatic, displaying notes of plumeria, ginger, lychee and banana. This wine tells an opulently fragrant story, but the palate is so restrained. Exquisite.
