Vern Vierra grew up on the family farm in Acampo, California near Lodi. Vierra opened St. Jorge Winery in 2009, named in honor of his grandfather. Honoring his ancestors who emigrated from the Azores, he naturally loves Portuguese varietals. His wine list includes Vinfandel, Verdelho, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, and Syrah—all ideally suited to the Lodi terroir. The Mediterranean-styled winery is a popular wedding destination in addition to a popular spot on the Lodi Wine Trail.
