As for the location of Lodi wine country, the nice version goes like this: If you follow the marine breezes through the Golden Gate and up through the tranquil waters of the north bay, and then over miles of bird-filled wetlands, you’ll come to a peaceful, Mediterranean flatland of old Zinfandel vineyards—Jessie’s Grove being the very oldest. (João Canziani / For The Times)
