Please join us Thursday, October 28th, any time between 5:00-8:00pm, as we welcome Bokisch Vineyards proprietors, Liz & Markus Bokisch to our Wine Bar.
Growing up in California, Markus Bokisch spent every summer in Catalonia, Spain where his mother was born. Like all Spanish children, he enjoyed wine with water at family meals. More details . . .

As the wine to water ratio increased over the years, Markus would come to realize that those summers in Spain eventually informed his life's work. His first step in the world of wine was the Viticulture program at U.C. Davis, followed by a position as viticulturist with Joseph Phelps Winery in Napa Valley. Finding he missed Spain, Markus and his wife Liz moved there in 1992. Back in Catalonia, Markus worked with grapes like Albariño and Graciano, and a little idea started to percolate in his mind. When he and Liz eventually returned to California, they knew their next step was to plant a vineyard. Markus had a hunch that Lodi, with its volcanic soils and diverse microclimates, would be the ideal place to start his new California-Iberian adventure. They planted their first Terra Alta vineyard in 1995 and in 1999, they planted the Las Cerezas vineyard to Tempranillo, Albariño and Graciano. 2001 marked the year Markus' little idea came to fruition when he released the first vintages of his Spanish varietal wines. Bokisch was a true pioneer in highlighting Iberian varietals in California, and has gone on to become one of Lodi's leading producers today.

As a UC Davis graduate in Plant Pathology and International Ag Development, Markus is a soil and farming expert. His talents as a grape grower have propelled his business well beyond being just a wine producer. Bokisch Ranches Company now manages over 2,500 acres of Lodi vineyards and provides fruit to wineries across California. All the farming is organic and performed under the Certified Green Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing Practices.
