Cliché Wine Co.
Another new tasting room is open in Lodi Wine Country. Cliché Wine Co. is the second location for Peltier Winery. But this isn’t just the same business at a second spot. Owners Rodney and Gayla Schatz are changing up the game by launching an entirely new concept where wine is only available by the case. Members pay a one-time membership fee and then purchase wines by the case at 50 percent off the regular retail price.
710 S. Beckman Rd., Lodi
