The Mettler Family started growing grapes in Lodi, California back in 1899. In 1999 Larry Mettler launched Mettler Family Vineyards winery. Ahead of the curve, Larry selected a French clone Cabernet Sauvignon rather than the tried and true Zinfandel. Mettler’s current release includes Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and naturally, the ever-popular Cab that's won praise from The Wine Spectator.
