A Stay at Wine & Roses in Lodi.

I was extremely excited when I was approved for an overnight visit to Wine & Roses Spa Resort in Lodi, California. While I have heard of Lodi, I didn’t know what exactly to expect at a resort in the small farming & wine community, yet, they are known for wine….so, that must mean its great, right? Right!

As we drove into this spacious compound offering a hotel, restaurant, wine bar & full-service salon, I thought it was really cool that they also have a vineyard right there next to the resort. They waste no time at tempting you ūüėČ After an easy & fast check in, we headed to our room that was not only spacious, but boasting a fridge & mini-bar capable of having room service already there & ready for you with wines & snacks, as well as an extensive menu of goodies to order in. What I was most taken with was our patio; it was ample size with a table & chairs, overlooking the lovely gardens & event tent offered. It looked like an enchanted garden from our deck, which was perfect for chill-laxing after the ride down from Sacramento as well as for waking up with my morning coffee.

Speaking of coffee, I really enjoyed the small amenities they had in our room; organic, fair trade ground coffee, Numi Teas (How did they know Gunpowder Green Tea is my favorite?!) & in the bathroom, Aveda hair & bath products, which is what they proudly use in their salon as well. I will add, the water pressure in our shower was very hard, & anything we did in an attempt to change that, it stayed very hard, which did make it less comfortable to enjoy a nice, long shower (which is what I usually love after a great cup of coffee). The large bathroom, with plenty of counter room for us both to get ready for our drive home, was a plus, though.

The entire grounds were gorgeous, & while Mike took a rest after check-in, I explored & the natural beauty that abounds this resort is well worth your stay. Theres a huge wine barrel, great for some silly photo-ops, small cottages with cages that looked like they are home to birds (maybe chickens?) & countless kinds of plants & flowers.

With an 11:30 check out time, we were hoping to cruise down to their Town House Restaurant for some breakfast, but, alas, they stop serving at 10:30 to prepare for lunch. While the menu looked delicious (Burgers, salads), we were hoping for a hearty eggs & potatoes kinda start to the day, so we passed but I would gladly return to try out all they have to offer.

With monthly cooking classes, & plenty of space to host an event, there’s so much to see & do within Wine & Roses of Lodi. Located at 2505 West Turner Road, check out their gorgeous web-site HERE to learn more! xo

    It’s too bad you weren’t able to enjoy the Town House Resturante while there, it is fabulous – one of our very favorites Restaurants in the area. Maybe next time.

    That looks like a wonderful place to stay; I think I’m going to keep it in mind the next time I travel north!
