Lodi!

The Definitive Guide and History of America’s Largest Winegrowing Region

By Randy Caparoso (with Foreword by Mike Dunne)

Lodi! is the first book ever written on Lodi winegrowing that lays out the facts and figures, tells the real story, and paints a vivid picture of this historic region with over 400 photographs by the author. It is as much a book for wine scholars as it is for those who appreciate wine for the sheer love of it.

This is a large format book (11.5 by 9.75 inches), which also features the watercolor artistry of Lisa Nowlain depicting Lodi’s sustainable flora and fauna.

Although the first edition of Lodi! will be very limited, you can guarantee delivery of your copy by placing a pre-order (delivery in March 2022).

A Love Letter

“There is no region in California more in need of a deeply researched book than Lodi, and no better person to produce such a work than Randy Caparoso. It’s a history lesson, love letter, encyclopedia, and guidebook all rolled into one beautifully composed package.”

ALDER YARROW

A Vital Region

“Randy Caparoso has distilled much of the knowledge accumulated during his long and remarkable career into this definitive guide to Lodi. A work like this is especially important for our wine industry, at a time when more and more wineries, including our own and many of our friends, are sourcing grapes from Lodi. Randy captures the history and all the technical elements that have made this region so vital to California.”

“What sets Randy Caparoso apart? I’d say his open-mindedness. He appreciates diversity; in fact, he adores diversity, and can appreciate all styles from all the world’s wine regions. If you are looking for a starting point of the sommelier revolution in the U.S., I’d point you to Randy Caparoso. Few are as perceptive, analytical or creative.”

Enlightening

“Randy Caparoso has a gift for capturing topics that are not fully mainstream, yet he hands it to you in a thought-provoking, enlightening, perfectly understandable way. His latest work, on the people and wines of Lodi, is a groundbreaking one. You will want to read this book.”

The Essence of Lodi

“In Lodi!, Randy captures the essence of the region—not just its physical and climatic attributes, but also the soul of the people who have revered this land for generations. Randy’s words and photographs show the world why Lodi is such a magical place. This book fills the empty space in every wine lover’s library that has been waiting there for so long.”
