In the 1870's our great-great-grandparents emigrated from Germany to Lodi, California. They started a small farm growing watermelons. In 1916 our great-grandfather expanded the firm by purchasing a grape-ranch. Our grandfather Harold continued carrying on our family's agricultural roots and gaining experience on our land. Our parents, the identical twins Randall and Brad Lange and their wives Charlene and Susan, greatly expanded our vineyards. In 2007, with all five members of the fifth generation onboard, we built our own winery.
Gen5 is produced from our estate fruit in Lodi, at our winery (LangeTwins). Our winemakers are Karen Birmingham and David Akiyoshi, a 25 year veteran winemaker who previously worked for Robert Mondavi as Director of Winemaker at Woodbridge.
