Hidden Jewel Old Vine Zin


This bottle here is the reason for my 4 month binge of Zinfandel's. =0) We bought this when we visited Miranda out in California. The first night we went out to Lodi to find a winery that was open past 4 and found Hidden Jewel. Lodi California is known for their zinfandel's and for good reason....they're fabulous. After this vacation every time I went to the wine store I'd look for Lodi zins...they are always wonderful. This was the first bottle I had that was old vine zin. The flavors are slightly more rich but still smooth. It's a pity Hidden Jewel doesn't distribute around here.

Do you know where I can buy this wine?

It looks like the winery has closed shop - I can't find any working phone number on Google. I've tried this wine before and absolutely loved it, but can't find the source.

We actually got this wine last summer at the winery in Lodi California. It was doing well last August! They never did have a website. The only evidence I've found of them online is a festival that they attend has a website. Good luck in your searches, it is very delicious wine!

here is where we got it, http://www.thelodiwines.com/jewel.html If the phone number on this page doesn't work then I guess you're right. It'd be a shame if its out of buisness though.
