We drove up from the SF east Bay Area to check out the wineries located in downtown Lodi. We were really surprised how different this town feels from Napa, Sonoma, and Livermore. While some people were extremely dog friendly, like Karen at the cheese shop, we found the wineries that were open to not be dog friendly. There were some quaint shops that we wished were open; including antique shops. Many were closed tight on Sundays. We had anticipated doing some wine tasting but came away with a different taste in our mouths. Word of advice - if you're going to downtown Lodi, don't go on a Sunday and think about leaving your dog at home :(.
