Lodi is located in the central part of the state of California and a city in San Joaquin County that sits at the junction of the San Joaquin and Sacramento valleys along the Mokelumne River in the north area of Stockton, and on the edge of the Sacramento River. The area originated as a Mokelumne Station that is on the Central Pacific Railroad. The city was then renamed after the famous racehorse at that time, presumably. Lodi has been known for a long time for its wine and vineyards, notably Tokay, which is made from a locally developed grape, the Flame Tokay. Its economy was also based on the packing and processing centers for fruits, vegetables, cereals, nuts, and other products that are grown in the surrounding agricultural area and also includes a light industry.
