Viaggio

Viaggio Estate & Winery is located in the middle of one of the most famous wine making regions in California, in the “heart” of Lodi’s Wine Country. Conveniently accessible from both Hwy 99 and I-5, Viaggio is a secluded and private estate with classic elegance nestled among beautiful walnut orchards and the serenity of the river. Viaggio‘s stunning and exquisite backdrop of the Mokelumne River offers plush outside grounds and several venues, each with gorgeous picturesque views.

 

Come Visit Lodi

Lodi and its surroundings are well known for the cultivation of Grapes and production of Wine. Starting in the early 20th century, and right up to the early 1980s, Lodi promoted itself as the “Tokay Capital of the World” due to the abundance of the Flame Tokay variety in the area. With the replacement by other varietals, primarily Zinfandel, Lodi now refers to itself as the wine-grape capital of California.

Every September the popular Lodi Grape Festival is held and includes rides, food, and wine tasting. Also popular is the Spring Wine Show (held in late March/early April, so as not to coincide with Easter every year), which showcases the area’s 50-plus award-winning wineries.

 

 

 

About the Owners

Teri and Larry

Viaggio Estate and Winery was established by Kent and Tamara Raverty. The site is the old homeplace of the Taddei Walnut Farm. Still surrounded by walnut orchards, its beauty is breathtaking.

Current owners Larry and Teri Lawrence invite you to visit Viaggio On the River frequently.

Larry and Teri are farmers and real estate investors from Elk Grove, California. Larry is a former Sacramento County Farm Bureau President. Larry is the President and CEO of Viaggio, and is very excited about producing some fantastic wines that you will be talking about for years to come. Teri is a microbiologist/scientist and is using her extensive chemistry and microbial background to strengthen the process of learning the art of winemaking. Originally from Louisiana, she loves California and is happy to call Viaggio home. Larry and Teri give all the credit and glory to God, and thank him daily for the courage and strength to live their lives to the fullest each day.

Teri plans and coordinates events that happen at Viaggio, and she and Larry, along with their great staff, are enjoying watching the wine selection grow and Viaggio on the River grow as a renowned establishment in the area.

They have four boys, Larry II, Scott, Randy, Bryce, and one grandson, Braxton. All reside in California.
