Vino di Vita, (Italian for “Wine of Life”) our tasting room is open 7 days a week!
National recognition came from the Creedence Clearwater Revival song “Lodi,” but the small agricultural town and surrounding area 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 proudly promotes itself as the “Zinfandel Capital of the World.”
With over 90 wineries in the area, Lodi can barely contain its excitement and passion for wine! Lodi celebrates all year around at the Grape Festival, Taste of Lodi, Wine and Chocolate, and Zinfest. Check out the Lodi Visitor’s Center or LoCA for more information regarding these events.
Viaggio Estate and Winery is located in Acampo, CA on the property that was formerly the Taddei Walnut Farm. Still surrounded by walnut orchards, its beauty is breathtaking!
A pair of real estate investors, Larry and Teri Lawrence took over full ownership of Viaggio in 2012. Larry is originally from Elk Grove and is the former Sacramento County Farm Bureau President, and now the President and CEO of Viaggio! He is also currently an active agent for buying and selling homes in the area. Larry’s wife Teri, the wine maker, is originally from Louisiana, but she loves California and is happy to call Viaggio home. Teri is a microbiologist/scientist and is using her extensive chemistry and microbial background to perfect the art of wine making. She’s very excited to be producing fantastic and award-winning wines that you will be talking about for years to come!
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. Larry and Teri have worked hard to build an amazing team, and together with them, are enjoying watching the wine selection grow and Viaggio on the River grow as a renowned winery and exclusive wedding venue. They have a lovely family of Larry II, Scott and Samm, Randy, and Bryce and Gabby, along with two awesome grandsons, Braxton and Corbin! All reside in California.
