Looking for a bottle of wine? Go .... that way! Grapes were introduced to the area by Stockton city Founder, Charles Weber, when he planted vines around his home in 1850. The East Coast transplant and would-be gold miner, George West purchased cuttings from Weber and planted the first major vineyard north of Stockton in what is now the southern Lodi sphere of influence. The first commercial focus of grapes came about in 1858, when West built the El Pinal Winery. From these beginnings the region's over 8 billion-dollar industry grew.Interested in finding a home in this dynamic and growing region of the Central Valley?  We would be honored to help you.  Please call the number below and one of our Team will get back to you as quickly as possible.

"FARM TO FORK" ... You be the middleman...Farmers' Market direct to you in Lodi Thursdays at 4:00 With all the passion this year surrounding the Central Valley's emerging awareness of the "farm to fork" culture, we sometimes forget that in many of our communities the "farmers" have been offering pre-fork opportunities for years!  While it may take a little more effort than just dropping into your locally sourced eatery, community farmers' markets provide ongoing opportunities for farm fresh and healthy produce and products.  The Lodi Farmers Market has been running each Thursday from around 4:30 to dusk  ... and now with a break in the triple digit weather ... here's an opportunity for a family and/or friends outing ....An opportunity to not only find fine, fresh food - but a chance to ...

I've been griping to my husband that we needed to visit Lodi ever since Myrl posted her photos of Lodi, because Myrl is my inspiration for fun places to go from Sacramento. She's always tripping out of town somewhere amusing, and Lodi is no exception. We couldn't leave a week ago because that was the day we needed to do blood curves for our diabetic cat, which means we have to be home all day. But this last Sunday was a perfect day to get away for a few hours and also to visit a winery in Lodi I've been meaning to check out.You can read more and see all of the photos in my personal blog today about our Sacramento Getaway to Lodi.

Christmas time is usually thought of as a time for joy, glee, happiness, family, fun & excitement.  But sometimes that's not always the case. Perhaps you, or someone you know, is alone during the holiday season.  Perhaps you've lost a loved one recently or in the past during the holidays. Maybe you know someone that's struggling financially and can't afford to provide the type of Christmas we all see on television with lots of presents and a feast fit for a king. Whether you've been having a wonderful holiday season, or you've felt alone or have suffered a loss of some kind, please know that all is not lost if you have love in your heart.  No one can ever take that away from you, me, or anyone. I wish you nothing but the best that life can bring you now and forever.   From my family to ...

Every year the annual Parade of Lights in downtown Lodi draws a very large crowd all through the streets.  Chairs are lined up for several blocks and many are placed along the sidewalks hours in advance and some even the night before. There are many floats, trailers, tractors, cars, trucks, etc., all decorated and lit up with lights from many schools, organizations, and businesses. This year I was honored to have a table & chairs reserved for my guests, and my son and I out in front of The Rusted Mic Entertainment House & Bistro. It was very cold out last Thursday night during the parade, but there was hot chocolate and lattes flowing to keep us warm.  For those of us that were brave (or crazy) enough to venture out to watch the parade in person, it was definitely a great show.  But if ...

Do you drive Highway 12 from Lodi to Highway 5??  Did you know you could get a $288 fine plus traffic school if you do not have your head lights on?  Yes this means during the day!  So many people, me included, drive that stretch of 12 not thinking twice about my headlights.  It wasn't until a friend of mine told me that he got pulled over and given a ticket for not having his headlights on at 12:30 in the afternoon.  He complained to me that it was sunny out and there were no adverse conditions, so we looked it up.  Highway 12 sees a lot of accidents, so they require headlights on at all times just outside of Lodi until Highway 80 in Fairfield!  It is a Highway safety zone!  So do not get caught without your headlights on, or it could cost you a pretty penny!!

It seems that Lodi, CA is starting to make a rebound.  People who bought their homes before or during the down turn, are now seeing equity in their homes.  This is such great news!!  We are still a little hesitant about job growth, but this is a great start!  Check out these great stats on homes in Lodi, 95242. Understand the difference between "listing prices" (what sellers are asking for) and "sold prices" (what buyers are willing to pay). By comparing these price trends, you'll have a good idea of where the market is heading. The median listing and sold property prices are calculated based on the market activity each month. Some sales are not immediately available from public records. As they become available, the data are updated. The number of active listings in Lodi (95242) increa...

Hey First Time Homebuyers, did you know that there are down payment assistant programs out there to help you purcase a home?  These programs help people who have not owned a home in the last 3 years, so even if you short sold your house, as long as it was over 3 years ago, you may still qualify!  This is such great news for people who are looking to get back into home ownership, but might be timid because of years past.  Visit my website Central Valley Homes to find out more information.  If you are ready to purchase your first home or start over fresh in a new home, give me a call and we can talk about it.   Thank you, Melynda Capps
