About S&L Vineyards

S & L Vineyards is owned and operated by Third Generation Wine Grape Growers.

The Stokes Brothers represent a family tradition of growing great wine grapes three generations in the making.  Their grandfather, Bill Stokes, Sr. planted his first 45 acres of Zinfandel near Lodi in 1954, firmly establishing a tradition that has been passed down to Bill and Mike. Through the years, the Stokes family has purchased, as well as developed new vineyard properties encompassing more than 4,000 acres of cutting edge grape varieties utilizing advanced cultivation techniques. As a result of its quality orientation, the Stokes supply fruit to several of California's best-known wineries.   

As an avid home winemaker, Allen Lombardi began sourcing and selling grapes to wine schools in the late 1990s. He established a partnership with the Stokes Brothers in 2001 while searching for a source of California Wine Grapes for his East Coast customers.

Throughout the past decade, their reputation for providing quality grapes and juice has enabled S & L Vineyards to develop lasting relationships with wineries, wine schools, restaurants and home winemakers throughout the United States.
