In 2005 the Bergholds opened their showplace winery at the estate vineyard in Lodi where it has become the cellars of craftsman winemaker Miles Berghold and his wife Julia – as well as a showcase for one of the most significant collections of Victorian antiques in the country. The elaborate tasting bars themselves are impressive works of elaborate old world craftsmanship.
Every Holiday season the Christmas spirit abounds at Berghold!
The tasting room has become a destination for lovers of all things Christmas as Julia and her mother-in-law every year go all out to decorate the spaces with personally hand made father Christmas figures in elaborate dress – some life sized- as well as holiday-themed artifacts, relics, and crafts from all over.
Unusual in Lodi terms where old vines are standard, the Berghold Zinfandel is grown on the replanted estate vineyard that borders the grand entrance to the winery. Only about 5000 cases of Berghold estate wines are produced annually. About 30% of production is Zinfandel which Miles makes in a rich but more-balanced and restrained style that he intends to express the taste of Mokulemne River terroir.
All of the winery’s excellent small production wines are sold directly through the winery – a good excuse to visit and enjoy the winery’s unique ambience and expressive wines.
