Mike hits the road and heads east to Lodi California, not the *most* well known wine region, but there *is* lots of wine there. A chat with Eliza Hess from Lucas Winery about the 2023 vintage, what Lodi does best, how a farm girl from Illinois ended up out west and (wait for it) the TUBA! A few nice Lucas wines are tasted, too.
