A rustic destination, Suisun Valley is a fun place for visitors who are searching for world-class wines, home grown farm products, and a beautiful, agricultural landscape, without the crowds. We’re an off the beaten path wine country destination which enjoys sharing all that we have to offer our neighbors and visitors who come from both near and afar.
The Suisun Valley appellation was established in 1982, and is nestled between two coastal mountain ranges, southeast of Napa Valley. We offer a very diverse agricultural region. We have approximately 10 wineries, our vineyards grow 23 different wine grape varieties, and we’re best known for our Petite Sirah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. We have many farm stands, which sell everything from fruits and vegetables, to dried fruits, nuts and freshly produced olive oils. All of our fruits and vegetables are grown in the excellent soils located between the eastern slope of Mount George Range and Twin Sisters, on family farms. Many of these farms have been handed down for generations. We have regular, seasonal events that are fun and laid-back, while we offer visitors our world-class wines, as well as our farm fresh, diverse fruits and vegetables.
We’re very easy to find, just off the I-80 freeway in Fairfield. Suisun Valley’s wineries are so close together that it’s easy to navigate the Suisun Valley “Loop.” Directional signs make it even easier. Each winery offers a unique tasting experience. With genuine hospitality and quality wines, Suisun Valley is sure to be a favorite destination.
We have a variety of products to satisfy any cook. You’ll find places to U-Pick your own fruits and vegetables and fruit stands where you make your own selections. In Suisun Valley, we’re proud of our world-class olive oils and dried fruits and nuts, all grown right here in our own agricultural region. Our family farms are multi-generational, with rich agricultural heritage.
“Few drivers buzzing along Interstate 80 through Fairfield, California, realize they’re passing by rolling valleys dotted with family farms and down-home tasting rooms. On the side roads and byways of this wine region, there’s more traffic trouble from wild turkeys waddling across the road than from cars. Green Valley and its neighbor Suisun Valley remain undiscovered and unpretentious, much as Napa was in the 1960s. Cool afternoon breezes from San Francisco Bay bring down high daytime temperatures – a good thing for grapes.”
