Road Trip! The Dancing Fox Winery in Lodi

A few weeks ago, my husband Phil and I took a drive down to Lodi to see the Seward Johnson sculptures that will be on display there until mid-July. They include sculptures of iconic American images, such as Marilyn Monroe with her white dress blowing up in the breeze, and sculptures of every-day people, like a woman reading on a bench. If you haven't seen them yet, they're definitely worth the trip.

We stopped in at the charming Dancing Fox Winery for lunch. They had a few items on the menu that were vegan or looked like they could easily be made vegan. I started with the Mediterranean Hummus plate, a very flavorful, slightly spicy hummus served with tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, and crackers. Loved it!

I also ordered the cranberry walnut salad without the feta cheese. It consisted of mixed greens and Romaine lettuce, dried cranberries, and candied walnuts, tossed with a cranberry vinaigrette. It was very good!

Other items I'd like to try during future visits to the Dancing Fox Winery include the Tofu Scramble they serve for breakfast, the house-made Veggie Burger (without the aioli), and the Tempeh Tacos offered on their dinner menu.

The Dancing Fox Winery is located at 203 South School Street in Lodi, and their phone number is 209-366-2634. The website address is, and their Facebook page can be found at The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
