What a quaint little winery. Since using our groupon we have been there a couple of times now. Friendly staff, quaint patio area and welcoming entrance. We used our groupon there and it was our very first wine tasting experience ever. I didn't care for the darker wines but I am hooked on their chardonnay ! I tasted it for the first time at Wine n Roses a few blocks away when we were celebrating our anniversary. I just had to go & buy a bottle. Never in my life have I NOT wanted to share a bottle of wine, but the chardonnay is MINE !

Great Groupon! We found an awesome new spot to drink wine and relax! Van Ruiten was a beautiful vineyard with great live music on Sunday. The pourers were very nice and accommodating! We are definitely going back!

We had a very nice afternoon visit at Van Ruiten Vineyards. The wines are very flavorful with rich full blends of lushious Lodi grapes. The reserve zin was one of our favorites with all of the tastings of each wine we tried bringing new joys to the palete. Our hostess was cheerful and friendly. She invited us to settle in out on the patio where the samples were brought to us as we enjoyed the fresh air and friendly conversation of our relaxing afternoon. Van Ruiten hospitality and fine wines, another great Lodi delight, thanks!

From Our Editors

In the years following World War II, Dutch immigrant John Van Ruiten sought to fulfill his dream of owning a vineyard. With a simple handshake as his contract, he purchased the land that would help him turn that reverie into a verdant realty. More than a half-century later, the wine empire spawned by that handshake continues to sprawl as quickly as the vines of its zinfandel grapes. These grapes and more now stretch across the 800 acres that Van Ruiten Family Vineyards call home, earning the winery high accolades—including a nod in the Wall Street Journal proclaiming their 2007 old vine zinfandel among the top 12 wines in the world in 2009.

In Van Ruiten's tasting room, guests can sample the winery's signature zinfandel, chardonnay, and cabernet sauvignon–shiraz blend before retiring to shady corners of the courtyard or an outdoor patio overlooking the vineyards. Among the vines, nesting boxes house owls that—as an alternative to pesticides—hunt down rodents and use their bright eyes to scare away enterprising grape thieves.
