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!

Did you know, that 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 this very special area.
