The Berghold family name dates back to the 1600’s in Austria where it has been traced back to the meaning of “vineyard worker”. This ancestral fact may explain the current Berghold family’s passionate pursuit to produce only the finest winegrapes and estate wines. The Berghold Family has been growing winegrapes in Lodi since 1986. Today, the estate is an assemblage of three contiguous vineyards totaling 85 acres of Syrah, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petite Syrah, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Zinfandel. The family has been selling winegrapes to a number of fine wineries, including some based in Napa and Sonoma counties.
"All estate vintages are terroir driven and made using artisan techniques combined with state of the art technology."
Our WineryBerghold visitors are transported back to the late 1800’s as the winery is filled with one of the largest collections of fine American Victorian Antiques in the country. From the 26 foot carved mahogany Eastlake bar that serves as the wine bar in the Tasting Room, to a 26 foot Louis XIV Oak Bar that can be found in the Barrel Room, the selection of antiques is endless. A thirteen foot handmade gilded tower clock featuring two mechanical gnomes beating their drums in unison each hour adds to the overall experience while beautiful armoires, tables and chests hold one of a kind wine related merchandise available for sale. At the center of the Tasting Room, a 1918 Charles Stieff concert grand piano sits beneath a magnificent chandelier from 1890 from the Paramount Theater in New York.
