“Michael” and “David” are Michael and David Phillips, bothers whose family has farmed fruits and vegetables in the Lodi region since the 1850s, cultivating wine grapes for nearly a century. Michael and David constitute the 5th generation of grape growers in the Phillips family, with the 6th Generation now an integral part of the family business.
The Phillips have always emphasized the importance of quality wines with unique and fun labels. Wine Makers Adam Mettler, Derek DeVries, and Jeff Farthing specialize in producing Lodi’s famous Old Vine Zinfandels, as well as Rhone and Bordeaux varietal wines and blends for Michael David Winery.
Farming with future generations in mind, the Phillips have adopted some of the most progressive sustainable farming practices in the state. All 800 acres of the family’s vineyards are third party certified following the Lodi Rules for sustainable wine growing.
