Suisun Valley Will Again Celebrate their AVA with a Tasting of Their Valley and a Second Annual Dinner

In December of 2007, Suisun Valley celebrated 25 years of being an AVA (American Viticultural Area, as designated by the BTT). As was written at that time, this is only American historical AVA perspective, because this valley – like all others in the United States – has much deeper farming roots. American Viticultural Areas began in order to establish order within the US, for terroir definition purposes.

The Suisun Valley Grape Growers Association threw a party last year, and wondered who would come. As it turned out, it seemed that the entire valley came to the celebration. It was so successful, in fact, that attendees barely fit into the Vintage Caffè location. The Suisun Valley Grape Growers learned from their first event that in the following year (December 2008) this one had to move to a larger location… And so it has.

On Saturday, December 27, 2008, at the Clubhouse at Rancho Solano, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., a reception for an appellation wine tasting is scheduled. Many of the wines that have Suisun Valley on their labels will be tasted by attendees. At 7:30 p.m., the evening will then segue into a winemaker dinner. Wines featured during the evening are going to be Suisun Valley Appellation wines, only, with winemakers being given an opportunity throughout the reception and dinner to present their winemaking philosophies, and to talk about their particular wines.

The 26th AVA Anniversary Reception | Winemaker Dinner is open to the general public, for guests to come visit with winemakers and taste their Suisun Valley wines. Wines featured at the dinner will be Suisun Valley’s Best Appellated Wines.

Tickets for this event must be purchased in advance, cost $75.00, and may be purchased by contacting info @ svgga.com. This promises to be another delicious event.
