Matt Smith enjoys crafting wines that are complex with the highest quality structure and finish. As founder of Blacksmith Cellars, I am the visionary for my wines and the winemaker. Since I’m all about blending science and art, it’s easy for me to make it happen.
Created in 2003 by owners Salvador and Claudia Galvan, Galvan Family Cellars has opened in our new location conveniently located near the 680, the 80 and the 12, in Fairfield. We look forward to sharing our new wine releases at our 32 foot custom crafted tasting bar located inside our working winery, and to hosting fabulous wine-focused events throughout the year, including our original Locals’ Nights.
In the heart of Solano County’s Green Valley, is Rock Creek Vineyard. Owners Tom and Carolyn West encourage you to come visit, taste their wines, and learn what drew them to this beautifully rustic winegrape growing area.
We invite you to come and sample our award-winning wines in our tasting room overlooking our vineyard. The tasting room is open 7 days a week, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We also have our many wine-focused events for the year posted on our website. We look forward to sharing our wines with you!
Every wine we make is estate grown and bottled by our family: Ken, Larry, Rick and Ron Lanza. While Ken and Larry manage the vineyards, Rick makes the wine and Ron manages sales and marketing. We learned the value of hard work from our parents and grandparents who farmed, crushed, poured and delivered wines before us. Years ago, we delivered wine all over the Bay area-filling our customer’s bottles from barrels in the back of our truck. Nowadays we welcome guests to our winery’s tasting room and to special events throughout the year.
King Andrews Vineyards is owned by Roger and Carol King. After growing grapes for over 20 years, we decided to capture vineyard nuances by making our own wine. When it came time to name this company something special that would reflect who we are, we decided to use our last name of “King,” and Carol’s maiden name of “Andrews.”
The Mangels and Oberti families have been farming in Suisun Valley for over 100 years. Gary and Katy Mangels formed a partnership with George Richmond and Gina Oberti Richmond to produce wine under the Mangels Vineyards label. They make a good team, from growing the grapes to making the wine.
