For twins, Randall and Bradford Lange, one simply cannot be a generational farm family without being sustainable; it is how the twins were taught to farm and it is how their kids farm the LangeTwins estate vineyards today. The family has been growing winegrapes in the Lodi Appellation of California for over five generations. In 2006, LangeTwins Winery was founded to create balanced, approachable wines from their estate vineyards.

During the 1870’s Randall and Bradford Lange’s Great-Grandparents settled in Lodi and began a family farm with their son, Grandpa Albert. The farm grew year over year and by 1916 they had their family’s first grape-ranch. It was on this ranch where their dad, Harold, was born in 1920. Just like his father, it was natural for Harold to work with the family to gain experience to carry on the family’s agricultural roots.
Harold expanded the family farm, and when Randall and Bradford returned from college they continued the tradition of working the vineyards. In 1974 they decided to farm on their own and as their business grew, their family did as well – by 1982 the fifth generation was here.
As the kids grew up on the family’s ranch, they developed an appreciation for winegrowing by working summers and harvest. Like Randall and Bradford, after college they each decided to come back to the family farm, so they took the next step and built a winery in 2006. Today each member of the family have unique responsibilities within the winery and viticulture teams, continuing their agricultural roots and growing our winery and wine brands.
