Snooth: Lodi Presents

Snooth: Lodi Presents

Most virtual tastings are fun, Snooth and Lodi Wine both take it up a notch, so it was great to be invited to participate in a tasting with the both of them. Lodi Wine Country is one of California's major wine growing regions, located 100 miles east of San Francisco near the San Joaquin/Sacramento River Delta, and representing the region were Master Sommelier and friend of Snooth Tim Gaiser will be joined by Camron King, Executive Director, Lodi Winegrape Commission, and Kyle Lerner, Owner/Vineyard Manager, Harney Lane Winery. Here's video of the evening - enjoy!
