Suisun Valley AVA Anniversary Celebration

This special event is traditionally held between Christmas and New Years on December 26 as a way to celebrate our “Suisun Valley AVA” Anniversary.

Tickets are $20 in advance (through 12/22), $25 at the door.

An AVA (American Viticulture Area), is a very important certification given by the TTB (Tax and Trade Bureau), described as a “region having distinguishing features.” This special designation is held in high regard and helps our local grape growers and winemakers attribute a certain characteristic of a wine made from grapes grown in this region. Some know this as “terroir.”

Suisun Valley AVA, also sometimes called “appellation”, was established in 1982 and was one of the first to receive its designation in this state! We are wrapping up our 35th anniversary as a designated appellation and we are very proud of it!

Did you know, that in order to designate a wine as “Suisun Valley”, 85% of the grapes used to make the wine must have been grown within the Suisun Valley AVA? When you tour Suisun Valley during this Anniversary Celebration you are helping to support the Vintners and Growers that are behind a very special area.

The Anniversary Celebration “Tasting Pass” is a one day pass to taste the wines and other offerings around the Suisun Valley AVA at participating locations. By buying a ticket to the Anniversary Celebration, attendees will be able to waive the normal tasting fees at the participating locations and enjoy a fun day with friends and family.

Tickets are $20 in advance (through 12/22), $25 at the door.
