About Michael David Winery

Our roots run deep here in Lodi. With over 150 years of family farming, the Michael David name has become more than just a winery; it’s a culture. We and Lodi go way back.

Read More

Our founders, brothers Michael and David Phillips, are 5th generation grape growers who have raised their families in the vineyard, and now the 6th generation has joined the team, Mike’s son Kevin and daughter Melissa. We, more than most, understand the importance of leaving it better than you found it for future generations. Our family legacy and love of Lodi drive our focus on sustainability.

We are honored to be able to share the fruits of our labor with you. From our winery tasting room and Farm Cafe to our expansive grounds with wood fired pizza and lagoon side tasting experiences - there is always something to discover at Michael David.

Plus, we’re pretty fun too.

I had booked a reservation for my Mom's 80th Birthday. We had ages from 34-82 on our party bus. The Winery was beautiful and set up outside was elegant. Wines were great, of course. They even had a Birthday welcome card framed which was special for her. The young girl who served us was friendly and helpful to all. Thanks so much for a memorable first time - we will be back !

We had an awesome seated tasting with Phillip! Loved the private tasting room! The charcuterie was delicious that we included. We had a new glass for each wine, and they were all delicious. Learned much about the winery, family, labels, and vineyard. We are now happy members of the wine club! Michael David made our favorite wine... now they are our favorite winery, bar none!

We got an area outside. Your grounds are beautiful. However the tri tip was bland no flavor. The food took an hour and a half to come and many mistakes were made on our order. We waited longer to get the order correct but finally gave up on the missing items.The girl said it was her first time serving outside. Despite that we will try again cause the place is beautiful.

This was our first & last visit to this winery. Had to wait 5-7 minutes for a hostess to even arrive at the host stand in the attached restaurant. We were then ignored for another 5 minutes at the tasting counter while two of the hostesses checked their mobile phones. Finally, our private tasting (6 people at $25/person) wasn't anything special, and not worth the cost. Young, poorly managed staff.

FANTASTIC! I am a self admitted Sonoma snob. What a great venue and the wines were delicious. I actually ended up becoming a member of the winery. I am a huge fan of the Freakshow line and was surprised and pleased when they offered me the new Freakshow Zin. The Earthquake and the Inkblot lines were just as good. I was very impressed with the Sin line. Can't wait for my Dec shipment

Arrived on a busy Friday afternoon 30 mins before closing. Was a little chaotic. To our surprise Michael Phillips, who we had not met, struck up a conversation with us. When the employee we were to meet with was busy he brought us a taste of wine and had a nice conversation. We stayed for the June barbecue. Food was good, music and MDW staff on duty were both wonderful.
