Uncorked! is happening in Suisun Valley, on Saturday evening this coming June 21, 2014. From 6:00 p.m. — 9:00 p.m. guests will be savoring Suisun Valley appellated wines… The Suisun Valley Vintners and Growers Association is hosting this event, at Il Fiorello Olive Oil Company.

This annual wine and food event features a wide selection of all Suisun Valley wines and gourmet foods.

Personally, because I began to work with this valley since it started to seriously market itself (in 2003), this is a growth that I’ve watched beyond anything that I could have imaged… Back then, there were only two wine companies, with everyone else being a grower, and only a handful of wines being appellated to Suisun Valley. The time was ripe to let the world know that they were down home people, neighboring Napa Valley in the southeast quadrant, if you searched for them on a map. With a climate that’s very typical of the southeastern part of Napa Valley, minus the hustle and bustle, this is “the” place to be on a Saturday evening for a homey food and wine event…
