Story

For more than one hundred years, the George Mettler family has farmed Harney Lane, a 100-acre parcel of land just east of Lodi. But it wasn’t until 2006 that they decided to venture into winemaking.

Everyone rolled up their sleeves. Jorja Lerner, a member of the family’s fifth generation, left her career as a physical therapist. Her husband Kyle— who jokes that farming is legalized gambling with more variables—took on added responsibilities to manage the winery, while Jorja’s mother, Kathleen, applied her strong hospitality skills to organizing the tasting room. Even Jorja and Kyle’s two children, who represent Harney Lane’s sixth generation, played a part. The family now has complete control of their wines from the vineyard to the bottle to the consumer. All the grapes are handpicked, hand sorted, and then fermented in small lots and barrel aged. This attention to detail and determination to make the Lodi, California Harney Lane Winery best product possible has certainly paid off.

In seven short years, Harney Lane Winery has developed a portfolio of unique, memorable estate varietals including Old Vine Zinfandel, Tempranillo, Primitivo, Petite Sirah, and Albariño, along with classic Chardonnay. Judging from the rapid growth of its wine club, Wine:30, and the fact that nearly all (95 percent or more) of its inventory is sold in the tasting room, Harney Lane has quickly developed an enthusiastic and loyal following and the wines consistently stand out in major competitions.

The 2013 Tempranillo won Double Gold, Best of Class at the 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition, and more recently Harney Lane’s 2013 Zinfandel took a 4-Star Gold Award at the 2016 Orange County Fair Wine Competition. Harney Lane prides itself on creating a tasting experience where guests feel welcome as an extended part of the family while they learn more about the wine and its history.
