Oak Farm Vineyard was founded in the year 1864 and is now a retreat where a new tradition begins. They are about family, having old friends, joining in, making new circles of friends and gatherings together. The fertile ground here is for, not only wine production, but it is also for you to make memories that will last for generations to come. The vision of the Panella family, to create a beautiful and passionate place for those who truly appreciate the celebration of great wine, family, and authentic friends. They invite you to come and have a few of their awarding winning wines. They want you to have a taste, a glass or share a bottle with friends and family.

Oak Farm Vineyards is located at the end of DeVries Road and was home to William DeVries and his wife Cornelia Crowe. William DeVries purchased this property in the year 1860, and at the time, the area was called "Elkhorn Township", DeVries was a good wheat farmer and raised cattle, he even became Justice of the Peace and was responsible for enforcing the law. The ranch was famous throughout the San Joaquin Valley as one of the most majestic and beautiful pieces of property within the state. DeVries was an enthusiastic lover of trees, particularly of oaks. On the home ranch, William never allowed a tree to be cut unless it was a menace, newspapers reported upon his death. The beautiful colonial style home was then built by William and his second wife Mary Jane in 1876.

While farming was William's profession, his son Marion took a different path as a profession. He took a more collegiate route, he ended up being a congressman, a judge, and a legal authority on wine regulations in the 1930s. Today, many of the property’s enormous oaks still standing and 60 acres of their estate vineyards are harvested each year, but it’s the fantastic winery and tasting room that's worth the short drive from the centre of Lodi. Many Varietals are grown on the property which includes: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Primitivo, Petite Sirah, Petite Verdot, Sangiovese and Barbera.

The property has been largely renovated with great attention to its heritage. Oak Farm Vineyards has an oasis in the country and their guests appreciate the trip to experience it.

They also offer services like Private Events, Parties, Wine Tours and Wine Clubs - The club for aficionados. An ongoing Reserve Club membership ensures a well-stocked wine cellar and an insider taste of Oak Farm's best. The perfect setting for your private seated taste of our Oak Farm Wines. These rooms are now available during their normal business hours.
