We’re a family owned business with a commitment to growing quality grapes, because we understand that exceptional wines begin in the vineyard. We planted and have been producing Chardonnay, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes on our home ranch in the rolling Clements hills for over 19 years, and have been making wine for both domestic and international export even longer. Because we’ve been in the wine industry for 50+ years, we understand what it takes to create a unique wine. Our goal is to build a long-term relationship with you by creating memorable wines and providing excellent customer service.
In 2013, Robert, owner and winemaker, was challenged to undertake a special project. His wife, Leslie, dared him to create an extraordinary sparkling wine. With his reputation on the line, he utilized the méthode champenoise process—labor intensive and time consuming. The result was a sparkling wine that one can enjoy on every occasion, or even on no particular occasion. Its fresh acidity is balanced with a smooth body, crisp fruit and silky yeast character, clearly demonstrating that a quality sparkling wine does exist and can be produced here in Lodi.
By word of mouth, our 2014 Blanc de Blanc quickly sold and the brand, “Serendipity” was born. The family gathered and determined that they were headed for the ride of their lives. After opening a production facility in downtown Lodi, Nostra Vita Family Winery was established. Our goal is to create quality wines and a sense of inclusion for each customer. Whether you’re in the Cellar Door, raising a glass of our sparkling wine to mark a special occasion, or enjoying a bottle of still wine during dinner with friends, we believe in the strength of extended family, friendship and the importance of sharing our time with those we love.
Discovered by chance, Serendipity Sparkling Wine has forever changed our lives and given us yet another reason to raise a glass high and to be thankful for all of life’s serendipitous moments. May you find your serendipity and never look back. Join us and make “our life” a part of yours. Visit Nostra Vita Family Winery.
