This is the third annual celebration of the Suisun Valley AVA, which has had great success for the past two years. This year promises to also be another wonderful weekend and dinner.

Winery Events: Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 26-27, 2009

Special Winemaker Reception | Dinner: Tuesday, December 29

This December Suisun Valley wineries will again be participating in weekend celebrations (open to the public); as well as the annual Suisun Valley Vintners & Growers Association hosting their anniversary winemaker reception and dinner.

On Saturday and Sunday, December 26 and 27, Suisun Valley wineries are celebrating this weekend, with the following Suisun Valley wineries being open for this anniversary tasting. Each winery location will be honoring the AVA’s history in its own unique way. A $5 fee (payable on-site at any participating location) will get consumers a logo glass and the ability to taste selected Suisun Valley wines. There are five participating tasting room locations:

On Tuesday, December 29, 2009, 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 with 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, 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 Anniversary Reception | Winemaker Dinner is open to the general public, for guests to come visit with winemakers and taste their Suisun Valley wines. Tickets for this must be purchased in advance of the event, cost $75.00, and may be purchased by calling any of the wineries listed above.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will go toward the development of a Dr. Richard E. Zimmerman fund at Sutter Regional Medical Foundation and Sutter Regional Medical Group.
