GALVAN FAMILY CELLARS
We were started by Salvador Galvan in 2003, a passion project yielding a few hundred cases a year. As the founder of Solano Wine Collective, a wine consulting company with a focus on high end private label wines, Salvador understands that great wine comes from well-tended vines. In 2007 Salvador and Claudia fell in love with Solano County’s Green Valley AVA and have expanded Galvan Family Cellars to 3,500 case production, working closely with vineyards in Green Valley, Suisun Valley, Napa and beyond. Production happens in their “urban winery in the country” located just a few minutes off of Highway 80 in Fairfield.
We believe in an intimate and minimalist approach in our wine making, practicing native yeast fermentation and minimal use of fining, filtering and minimal sulfite addition, allowing our wines to best express their vineyards’ terroir. We produce several wines, including a barrel aged Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, old vine Zinfandel, and beautiful, complex red blends. Our packaging is eco-conscious: lightweight locally produced bottle, paperless labels, natural cork and no pesky foil.
We are conveniently located near the 680, the 80, and the 12, and parking is easy. Our large custom-crafted bar, crafted from local barns and scratching posts for Green valley’s cows, is a special place to elbow up and taste our current selections. Join our mailing list for updates on wine events- we promise, we only email about the fun stuff! Follow us on Facebook for fun photos, updates on new wine releases, and happenings in our gorgeous Green Valley. We also offer a super fun Wine Club, with benefits including events and barrel tasting with our wine maker, exclusive access to member only events and priority on limited production new releases.
