In my recent travel, I was fortunate to travel with Visit Lodi to explore Lodi, California – a hidden gem nestled in the heart of the state's wine country – recently played host to a splendid weekend escape that left lasting memories. From the luxurious accommodations at the Wine and Roses hotel to the delectable farm-to-table delights at the Townehouse restaurant and the wine-filled adventure at M2 Wines, this weekend getaway had it all.

The next day promised an adventure of a different kind: a visit to M2 Wines, check out their Instagram here.

For just $15, visitors were treated to a symphony of flavors that danced across the palate, perfectly complemented by carefully selected wines.
