The Zinfandel Capital of the World

At Mokelumne Cove Cellars we have one mission: "To create world class hand crafted wine in small batches". We accomplish this by sourcing exceptional quality fruit from individual growers. We feel that making our wines this way gives each vintage its own distinct personality. 

Our first vintage is a spectacular Old Vine Zinfandel. With Lodi as "The Zinfandel Capital of the World" we wanted to showcase what we feel is one of the most versatile wines you can enjoy. Whether you wish to pair it with your favorite food or simply share a bottle over intimate conversation, our Zinfandel is up to the task!

Mokelumne Cove wines are only available at select retail locations and right here on our website. We hope you enjoy our 2016 Old Vine Zinfandel. We certainly enjoyed creating this unique batch.



What is a Mokelumne?

”What is a Mokelumne” (Pronunciation: mul-KUL-uh-mee) you might ask? The Mokelumne River AVA (American Viticultural Area) is located in the southwest part of the larger Lodi AVA in San Joaquin County, California. The Mokelumne River drains out of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and passes through the heart of the Lodi appellation where it feeds the rich agricultural region of the Central Valley. Mokelumne is believed to mean "Condor River" in the language of the Yokuts tribe of Native Americans.
