Oak Ridge Winery is the oldest operating winery in Lodi, California. Founded as a winery co-op in 1934, it had been operating as such up until 2002, when it was purchased by the Maggio and Reynolds families, both multi-generational grape-growing families from the San Joaquin Valley. Today the winery continues to be family owned and operated with three generations of Maggios working for the company. Rudy Maggio, along with his family, run what is today Oak Ridge Winery.
Upon taking ownership of the winery, the families initiated an extensive and comprehensive renovation that has transformed Oak Ridge Winery into a state-of-the-art wine-making facility capable of meeting the quality and volume demands of the times. The recent addition of 1,000,000 gallons of tank space as well as a new bottling facility are key improvements that will help ensure the winery’s continued growth.
The company however, is more than just bricks, mortar, tanks and barrels. The owners have assembled a team of passionate industry professionals with the knowledge and experience necessary to create world-class wines:
“We truly have an outstanding team here at Oak Ridge – from our winemakers, to our sales team, to our production crew and winery support staff – they all contribute to the success we’ve had.” said Raquel Maggio-Casity, Controller. “It’s incredible to see the team and the company grow and become so much more than we had ever imagined.”
