About Carmenet Reserve

Wines of Distinctive Character

Carmenet (pronounced “Car-men-ay”) Reserve is a French-inspired collection of fine wines with a California point of view. Grown at our family-owned Forest Lake Vineyard in Lodi, CA since 1983, we have set out to create balanced, elegant wines that represent affordable luxury in a bottle. Around here we like to say our Carmenet Reserve wines are “half the price, yet twice as nice” as other luxury wines. So, let’s raise a glass to discovering something new!
