Vinoski Winery introduces California dry, sophisticated wines to the East Coast. Our wines are made in Lodi, California using only the first fruit, unblemished, hand-picked, and hand-sorted grape varietals. We primarily use our Lodi grapes and blend them with like grapes (same varietal), including those from Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley. We also experiment with rare white grapes, such as the Vermentino, to produce unconventional white wines.
Our grapes in California are hand picked and tested daily, to ensure we are picking at peak times. We then ferment with the grape’s natural yeasts, and capture only the free-run young wine. Unlike other wineries, we do not press the wines to gain more bulk wine, causing our wines to not have any harsh tannin astringency from pressing. Even with our free-run process, our wines have a firm tannin backbone that stabilizes the wine for decades.
Our premium wines are aged up to three years and more in French Limousin Oak to provide soft tannins and a solid structure that will endure a long cellar life. Fine wines take years to produce and then years to age, and so we began fermentation in 2014. Our winemaking process employs natural fermentation techniques that are self-balancing and protect the grape berries’ natural acids. In blind tastings, Vinoski wines have surpassed investment grade wines, making us produce what wine connoisseurs have declared as “private reserve” or “library-class” wines.
Today, we have master winemakers from two generations making silky, lush Vinoski wines. Winemaking has always been a Vinoski family passion and we hope you share our enjoyment when drinking them!
